Apartments, Phones & Cats, Oh My!!!

Okay, so I just moved into the apartment - it was a really quick thing so if this is the first you've heard of it, you probably aren't the only one. It's actually a townhouse with two bedrooms upstairs and a full bath, and a half-bath downstairs. I love it. I've never had my own two-story place with a "guest" bedroom!!! I can't wait for my sis to come up and stay with me, and my mom too!!! Of course I need a bed first...

The cats adapted well, or at least Buddy did. Grace was really mad at first, hissing and yowling at me and Buddy, but I knew that was going to happen. She finally got over it after a couple of days and now they have lots of fun running up and down the stairs and everywhere. It must feel like the whole world to them after the fifth-wheel! Once in a while they forget about the different floors and I'll hear one meow downstairs and I'll have to say something to let them know I'm upstairs. They'll meander up and meow at me like, "Hey, there you are!".

Buddy has been keeping me up at night trying to open cupboard doors and drawers. I caught them both under the sink early one morning and scared them, hoping it would help break the bad habit, but to no avail. So I've been leaving a couple of empty ones open. This morning however, I got up to hear a strange sound in the kitchen. I had a couple of paper gift-bags on top of the refrigerator and I should have known better, knowing Buddy's insane curiosity and love for bags. When I went into the kitchen this morning (cautiously because of the strange sound), I found a bag on the floor and the freezer door WIDE OPEN! I'm sure it had been open for hours, just running and running. Sheesh!

Also, I got a phone!!!! Of course I'm not going to post it, but if you know my sister or my mom, you can get it from them most likely. :) I was so excited to have a phone again that I called it to make sure it worked. Then that night, I talked for three hours. That won't be a normal night of course, but I had a lot of pent up "calling" to do!!!

Oh, and some friends from church have been overwhelmingly generous and have given me two barstools, two dining room chairs, a dining room table, a big chair and matching ottoman (sp?) and a huge couch that has two recliner in it! Also a mattress so I don't have to sleep on the floor anymore, a dresser and an armoire! Wow. There are some really kind people here!

Okay, that's all I've got for now! God bless you! (I know He has blessed me greatly!)
