I finally got the wheel fixed this week. We went up to Estes Park which was fun as always. I also got Sean to go down to Colorful Yarns in Littleton, CO. I have to admit to feeling a little stalkerish. I have read a blog of one of the employees for a few years. She was working to day and when she complimented my new Ravelry shirt I complimented her blog. Her knitting is really inspiring to me. They had the Dream in Color Smooshy that I have been wanting to see. I picked up two skeins to make the Noro Sweater that isn't going well. Sean thinks I was creepy when I was checking out. From reading the blog I know that this woman's dad is ill with cancer. I asked after him because of what I had read. Sean then mocked me the entire way home.

We have furniture. It is so nice not to be sitting on the floor as I type this. I have the kitchen completely unpacked. The bedroom is done; I'm just hanging pictures and such. I think that my books are going to smother us in our sleep. I have gone through most of the book boxes. I was able to unpack a few (mainly because there boxes were destroyed). I finally found all of my Thai Study books. They now live on top of my desk for the moment. I just need Sean to come home and take out the next round of boxes. I did the first two.

The movers called today. They are going to deliver my things tomorrow between 1-3 PM. I just want my things so badly. Sean and I are trying to figure out where things will go and how we can store all of our books. The shawl is coming along nicely.

I am somewhat settled in CO. We move into our new apartment this weekend. The furniture comes between the 15th and the 25th. I am looking for a job and knitting a Cleite Shawl unofficially for the Ravelympics and for the Gaskell kal/ral. I'm using some stashed Schiefer Andrea in the Diane Fosse. It is really nice.

It is my birthday. I'm another year older, and I have to say that 25 wasn't a bad year. I am starting a new phase of life at 26. I have safely moved to CO. Monday before we moved we went to Claim Jumper with friends. Sean now understands the allure of the Chocolate Calzone. We were hoping to get on the road Tuesday after the movers came. They didn't arrive until 8:00. A Joy Feast order later for Sean, myself, and the friends from Monday we went to their house to sleep for the night. Thank you again for letting us stay with you Tuesday night. Wednesday, we got on the road and it was fine until, we had some difficulty in Nevada 40 miles outside of Las Vegas. When Sean was driving the front passenger tire blew out. One tow back to Las Vegas and three hours of time later, we had four new tires and were back on the road. The first night we made it to Cedar City, Utah. The next day we finished the drive through Utah (I swear that state never ends. I cheered at the Welcome to Colorful Colorado sign. I'm so glad to be able to be with Sean on a daily basis. I was a little people sick Friday. One call to Jen later, I had casted on a new sock and felt a lot better. Jen and the sock helped. I'm looking for a job, and gathering all of my notes for the thesis. I'm excited about this new phase of life. Sean also seems really happy. I also have to say it is nice to have a full size refrigerator again.
