all settled in....sort of

i officially have all of my stuff moved into the new apartment! i had to get some last minute things i forgot over there, this morning. i left my keys there, so i hope there isn't anything i forgot. :) my new room is a MAJOR fixer-upper. which is fine, i've just never spackled or painted before so this should be interesting. my room is kind of sad looking at the moment, i don't own any furniture and a lovely friend gave me a mattress. so i have clutter, suitcases and a mattress.

almost all of my stuff is still in nebraska. i have about 10 big boxes of stuff there, i moved with just two suitcases. it's been really interesting having only two suitcases worth of belongings. i kind of forget all of the stuff i have back in ne...and it makes me realize i can live with much less. i still don't like it though!!! :) i think i'll really feel settled in when i can finally get my stuff. and some furniture! and a tv! and betty!!!!! i'm picking her up tomorrow. i can't wait.

yesterday i went to ikea and could have seriously stayed there forever. oh how i love ikea. i just need to figure out how to get big things like bed frames/desks/dressers from the store to my apt. without paying a million dollars in delivery. these are the rare moments i wish i had a car.

i've been wanting to join a knitting group lately and i was searching ravelry for one...i feel like the city is so big and there is so much going on, it's so hard to find one! then i came across this thread...that was exactly what i was looking for:
