Apartment Stuffs

Well that last update seemed to go well; now I’ll ramble on about the apartment.

It’s been almost two months since we “oficially” moved into the apartment, and we’re finally getting things settled down. As I said in the last post, the den is cleared out a bit more and is somewhat live in-able. We still don’t really have things up on the walls yet, but we HAVE ORDERED WEDDING PICTURES! So… that will happen in time.

One of the perks of working at Epic is the internal Classified Ads. It’s a suitable replacement for “Cheggpost” back at ISU: a local selling board with items available with no shipping charges! Although, you do have to deal with transporting things when you live in Dodgeville, and everyone else lives in Madison. I found a really great washer and dryer on there for $200. After checking them out and finding that they were practically brand new, I agreed to buy them. Um… who know U-Haul charged by the mile? (everybody) In the end, another Epic resource saved me. I’ve been in classes since I started, and I just met a guy who’s in a wheelchair; he sits by me in lab. When he heard about my predicament, he offered his van… along with the lift. Talk about easy! Without rambling too much more (I have to run to a church thing), suffice it to say Keith is a really cool guy and Amanda and I now have a nice almost-new washer and dryer in our apartment.

All the moving boxes are hidden in the storage closet, and everything else is coming nicely into place. Maybe I’ll get some picures up on the gallery one of these days (if I ever get server access to the files!).

That’s all from the Flessner’s for now. Adios!

Long time, no update

This has to be something like the 5th or 6th post with that title, or at least that theme. I know I haven’t updated lately. It’s like I’ve been busy being married or with my new job or something. Seriously, I haven’t really had so much time to sit down at a computer lately. I finally got the den cleared out a bit and have a computer with two monitors up and running (woo hoo!). This post is more of a check to see if this site still works. I know Russ was doing some upgrades and whatnot; it seems like I need to bug him about giving the web server access to edit files. Anyway, as always (when I make these haven’t-posted-in-awhile posts), I’ll try to update on more of life’s events soon.
