Good news!

The realtor finally called back and we got the apartment!!! Yay, I am really excited. Andrew is signing the lease on the 6th, and we are driving up a moving truck the weekend of the 8th!! Moving to Chicago finally feels real!
 Uno, the one eyed cat, and his owner have moved. Snickers (above) was recently spayed by someone. She is always hanging around for cat food and petting. I hope she gets fed after we leave! The same for Blacky-Whitey, a real feral cat that likes to eat the food I put out, but has never once let me get close to it.

I have been packing more boxes, as well as cleaning up the Oldsmobile to sell it. It makes me sad, because I love my car, but having two cars and living in the city makes no sense. I posted an ad on craigslist, and I have gotten some calls and a few people to come and look at it.
I received some lovely emails from either incredibly stupid or semi-illiterate people.

in response to my five paragraph ad that included pictures? Huh?

OH craigslist! You can be so awesome and helpful, yet there are some drawbacks. In human form. :)

Wish me luck with the car sale. I am trying to get all my errands done, so that when I sell the car I don't need to ride my bike anywhere in the heat. 

Yay! The Chicago phase of my life begins shortly!


  1. Good luck! Those emails made me chuckle :)

  2. Good luck with the move! I'm in the Chicago area and I hope you'll love it here!


Thanks for your thoughts and feedback!
