Finally & sort of. ;)
After my final day of work on Friday (during which I got to pick out my own going-away cake at Russo's!), a few co-workers & I went out for dinner at Watch City. Then, a Mediterranean chicken salad & Titan Ale heavier, I headed up 95 with two plants, a mattress, a betta fish, and miscellaneous other household goods.
Arrived around 9:45, had some help unloading, had a glass of wine with my housemate & some of his friends, and crashed around midnight. Worked all day Saturday, then headed up to the lake house.
After all the hubbub of the last few weeks, I was really looking forward to relaxing with my family on Saturday night. Instead, within thirty minutes of my arrival, I had both locked my keys (& purse & phone & Red Sox tickets) in the car & gotten two splinters deeply embedded into my foot. Sigh.
Once these issues were sorted out, though, it was a lovely weekend. Coffee on the deck in the mornings & swimming at the beach in the afternoons. Nice way to set me up for my first week of classes. I'll update more later, as I get more things unpacked & meet with more classes!
