I’m out of Inman! Yesterday was so crazy!! I’ll skip all the details, but I’m happy to report that three boys (Shel, Peter & Justin) helped me move my furniture and boxes from my apartment into the back of my big Budget rent-a-truck. All of the boys were tremendous, especially Shel who, despite heat, humidity and carrying heavy loads down dozens of stairs, was all smiles, laughter and full of flirtatious energy. It was such a pleasant surprise. In lou of payment, the boys were treated to the most expensive pizza in Raleigh (haha) and beer. It was truly minuscule payment for the amount of work they did to help me out. I can’t thank them enough.
Charlotte and I stayed at Shel’s last night (she’s actually still there) and eventually, after hours and hours, Charlotte was brave enough to emerge from under the futon. Shel coaxed her out and held her while watching tv. It was the sweetest thing. Then, when we were sleeping, I woke up for a minute just in time to see Charlotte tip toe up Shel’s torso to the top of his head where she curled up and fell asleep. I love that my kitten loves my boyfriend. :)
Yesterday was also cool in that it was Kristen’s birthday. I sent her a birthday present and she waited to open it until she called me, so I was almost w/ her while she opened her present. That was such a thoughtful thing to do and I appreciated it so much! I’ve always had a blast on Kristen’s birthday and it made me sad, for lack of a better word, to not be able to celebrate w/ her. Living hundreds of miles away from loved ones is really freaking hard!!
Today’s part 2 of my big move. I’m leaving work at noon and heading to The Summit to sign my lease and move into my very own apartment!!!!
