(The vet says tranquilizers will take the edge off. We'll see.)
So begins day one of our trip to Virginia. (Well, my trip to Virginia. Matt officially moved out there over a month ago, I'm just not in the habit of announcing that I'm home alone.)
Obviously, I won't have a lot of Internet time, if any, over the next few days as I drive up to pick up Elliott-boo from my parents' house and start the 17-hour drive, so I'm going to start posting some of the things that I've wanted to say over the previous month that I wrote down and wasn't able to share.
My precious boo! Sober, and also traitorous for only being a lap-kitty for my mom. But I missed her fuzzy face.
First things first, though. We do have a home in our new town! When Matt and his parents moved the basics up to Blacksburg, they spent their first full day in town looking for a place for us to live. I was working that day, but I kept getting text messages and e-mails on my phone filled with pictures of potential rentals. They visited five places, but the second townhouse was a clear winner. Garage, washer/dryer included, central heating and air, in a nice neighborhood? He deposited the deposit, paid the rent, and moved in three days later. Done and done. We never thought it would happen that fast.
All he had with him was a desk, a recliner, and an air mattress. (Well, that was all the furniture, anyway.) So I'm sure he'll be glad to have a real bed again, and some legit places to sit. Oh, and perhaps his wife back. :)
If you had to live for a month with only three pieces of furniture, which pieces would you pick? Got any tips for driving cross-country with a cat?
