Aileen then drove me to a couple of grocery stores so I could buy more stuff in the food department, so now I feel like I'm not simply mooching off the nicely stocked pantry that is already here. Perfect.
My room is looking more like a place where someone lives, rather than the vast, empty, echoing space of my first couple of nights, and the wild chaotic space of two nights ago. Not everything is put away, and there's lots more to do, but it's coming together!
Today, I will go out and have fun at Pride, thereby exhausting myself in a completely different way than I've been doing the past few days. It'll be good to have a change of pace, even though I really like unpacking.
I have bunches of now-empty boxes, and a couple of bags of styrofoam peanuts. If anyone would like any of these packing material items, do let me know.
