Not settled in yet....but getting there

Well, I finally am in my new apartment. As my friend Kara said to me during the heatwave " You are so hot you made LA break all heat records!" Needless to say, I have been sweating my booty off! I moved in on Sunday the 26th and the numbers I saw on my car thermometer were staggering. AS I was driving through Woodland Hills, the numbers crept up to 115. I felt so bad for all the guys who helped me move, because they were drenched in sweat. And of course, my apartment has no AC. I mean who would have thought it would get this hot right next to the ocean?

I took this photo on Monday as I was driving to ( or from, I was so delirious from the heat I don't know whether I was coming or going anymore) Bed Bath and Beyond.

But I do know that i spent a RIDICULOUS amount of money on a fan at BB&B but it was so worth it! Here is the fan that cost me a fortune

But alas we are here, it is still hot but not as hot as it was. Today has been in the low 90's, high 80's. I waited around most of the morning for the cable guy and he didn't do all that he was supposed to, but honestly, i felt so weird without internet access. I mean, I move to this new place where I know some great people, but how did people keep in touch without the invention of SKYPE, Facebook, blogs, text messaging, etc? I mean, it hardly feels like I am that far away from home, but it makes so much more sense why it was so much harder 8 years ago when I tried to leave home to live in San Diego.

For those of you wondering about Tucker and Max, they are doing as well as can be expected. Max is amazing at these changes. The way I figure it, as long as he is with me, he is fine. Whether that be LA, NYC, AG, or China, my dog will adapt as long as he is with his "momma". As for Tucker, well it was rough on him in the beginning. It is still kinda rough on him. He isn't used to having to go #2 on walks, not having access to outside, it being 1,000 degrees and more. It is harder on him and I realize that. It's hard for me too. But he is doing ok.

I know he misses his "Grandma" though. And of course, he misses all of the people from home who love him! You know who you are!

Well, I guess I better get going. I will have lots more to report on in the upcoming days now that my computer is working.

Next time, I'll tell you all about what is coming up for regarding work! Yay!

Till we meet again!
