The Room (continued)

Ok, If you remember the pictures from the first entry. We have a very long (connected) desk. It goes from the window to the doow of our room. I put the fridge under the farthest nook (near the door) and the microwave above it on the corner of the desk. Of course, the food stuff in the cubes above it and then on the microwave cart..

The microwave cart is in this little nook between the wardrobe and the wall. It fits perfectly, the only problem is that there is a bar to hang stuff on (I can only assume jackets?) ... but we do have hooks hiding behind the door too.

Ok, so I think that where the chair is I will end up putting the TV (when I finally get it back from that darn BF). I think that having it by the wall (where the outlets are) is the best place for it, because I think that it would take up too much space on our desk (if it would even fit) and I don't want to block the window.

I hope that you approve of the set up! 
Miss you!

Cabaret 2010

Cabaret 2010 was fun. We had some great acts and some not so great acts. There was the classic a capella group, some country covers and of course the Stix jazz group. But there was one group that went above and beyond ... a group of like 8 guys got together and danced to all the best pop songs from our childhood and now. Lady Ga Ga, N-Sync, Beyonce. They were great hoots and screams the whole way through!

We really missed you!

Moving In

Dearest Leah,
It was a hot and humid Sunday afternoon to move in on. I had the SUV packed and everything was heavy! Kristi and Michael helped me move my crap to the fourth floor into our modest room. When my eyes first absorbed the room, I was a little turned around from your drawing ... and then disappointed. The closet space is horrendous! What is Concordia thinking ... putting girls in dorms with next to no closet space! The prices we pay, we should get more!

(Right: All my crap. Below: Michael and Kristi - they were saints about helping me. I was crabby and sweaty!)

Getting settled in was a stressful matter, as I am sure you can guess from my personality type. (I am still moving some things around, and am totally unsure where to put the stuff Dan is bringing.) It was a long process, trying to figure out which clothing items to hang and which to put in the very tiny drawers.

I have you on the top bunk, just as planned, but the bed are really high. I mean, I nearly hit my head if I am not careful when I get in. But at least there is a lot of under bed storage? :p I am taking up most of the reachable shelf space. But have left your closet nearly completely alone (just the vacuum).
Tomorrow, I will do pick up stuff from Dan's house. It will be a process, but I will have this place cozy for you!.(I don't know if you can see them but the little heart lights are up on the wall.)

(Left: Our desk space. Right: My closet (just look how small and puny it is!)
