Settling In

We are finally in our apartment and have started making it a home.  We had ordered a bed, a real bed, our first bed in almost a year, and the box spring would not fit around a corner.  We had to special order a split box spring.  So for the first week we slept on the mattress on the floor.  Finally, last Friday, our box spring arrived and they set up the bed.  This weekend for the first time in almost a year, we slept in a bed that belongs to us.  Ahh, the comfort!  I feel really spoiled!!

Our friends, who are allowing us to live in their basement, have gone to pick up their furniture.  They are selling a home in Ohio and buying the one we will share.  They will be bringing back with them some creature comforts that we have not had in almost a year.  They will be furnishing us with a table and chairs, love seat, recliner and a few other goodies.  In the meantime, we have purchased some camp chairs and are using our well-worn travel bins as tables.  We are really looking forward to their return and the use of some real furniture.

Our trip to Granite Falls, MN was nice.  We visited the church I mentioned but did not have time to visit since we still had a 7 hour drive home.  I did get photos and hope to get them uploaded this week.

So for now it is back to work and wait for the rest of the furniture to arrive!
