I'm here!

Well, I finally made it. I was pretty stressed during the move. I was worried that Buddy (my boy cat) would hurt himself again, so I didn't drug either of the cats. It seemed to be the better choice. Buddy yowled for a couple of hours and finally just meowed here and there. By the time we reached Albany he looked beat. And of course, as soon as I put Grace's carrier on the floor, she hissed... and it didn't stop for a couple of days. But they seem to be pretty settled in now.
I have a backyard, which I can look at right now - it's outside my kitchen/dining area. It's actually pretty good sized! The dandelions have totally taken over and I'm afraid if I used a week killer, I might just have dirt left over, but it's mine!!!
I also have something else at this place - as Jeff so sweetly put it: "You don't have a garage... you have a house for Roger." Awww!!! I've asked the landlord if I can repaint the inside because it's a horrible light green and he gave me permission. In fact, he seemed surprised that I would want to. But Roger doesn't like the color, I'm sure! And after I paint it I can hang my Jolly Roger flag.
The house (it's a duplex really... close enough!) has a definite 70's flair to it, but I kind of like it. I've got my livingroom totally decorated. As soon as I can, I'll post pics!
Oh, and my front yard has two rose bushes (one pink, one white) and two hedges. It's a small front yard, but I have a little bit of a side yard next to the driveway and garage too.
I am cooking in my crockpot. I'm making my first roast. I'll be sure to let you all know how it goes! It smells pretty good and I'm very excited. I went to a WinCo grocery store and had loads of fun. The bulk section alone kept me entertained for at least 20 minutes. I got a 13 bean soup thing and 10 grain pancake/waffle mix. It was so cheap! I got out of there with about 5 bags for a little less than $40! Which includes the roast I'm making of course.
Okay. That's enough of an update for now... I have to check on my roast!
