Moved!

Yesterday was officially my last day in the old apartment - I left work early to do some last-minute cleanup, let the carpet cleaners do their work and turn in the keys.  Now I can focus on unpacking and integrating stuff at Amy's house - we've already started unpacking boxes. :)

Father's Day (and the weekend as a whole) was great!

I received a last-minute babysitting offer for Saturday, so I was able to help Amy (she had plumbers and drywallers in, so the house needed some cleaning and painting). I was only able to do a little sanding and cleanup of the drywall, but every little bit helps! By the end of the day, I looked like someone had emptied a can of flocking on my head. And my body. And my clothes. :)

Sunday morning, we had some early fun and snuggling, and then I got some super cool presents - a set of easy-on/easy-off clamps for my Olympic bar (these are amazing!) and a Bee House teapot!!!

We then went to The Cheesecake Factory, and made it in early enough to avoid long lines or a wait of any sort; I had a very coffee-flavored cheesecake, which was nice (I am a sucker for ganache, every time), and Amy had Chris's Outrageous Cheesecake (I might have to get this one next time). There was a bit of a snafu on our food, but we finally received our Monte Cristos, which were delicious. We had a ton of  leftovers, as we were stuffed with cheesecake. The rest of the day was spent in wonderful laziness.

The rest of this week is going to be focused on packing - I've made a lot of headway in my room, and Lillian's stuff is next up. After that, the kitchen!

This weekend, work and play commingled; we spent a lot of time cleaning up some seriously neglected areas of my apartment in preparation for the move, and packed quite a few boxes and even some of my smaller/lighter pieces of furniture. There is no way I would have this much done without Amy's help!

We were also able to hang out with some of Amy's friends - we went to Cru (the River Oaks location) and had some _great_ food; my short ribs with sage gorgonzola polenta was fantastic, and the company was excellent as well! We picked up Lillian from the grandparents and took her home for a short nap while we did some more cleaning; after she woke up, we went and met some more of Amy's NASA friends at the 59 Diner. Many burgers (with eggs and bacon, of course) were consumed, along with various shakes and malts. 

We also had some delightful sleep-ins, with plenty of snuggling. :)

I was introduced to Top Gear (UK) and Doctor Who - both were a lot of fun! The Top Gear episode had the hosts trek from the rain forests of Bolivia to the coast of Chile in some clunkers; the Doctor Who episode was very creepy and fun, but didn't showcase the good doctor as much as most episodes, according to Amy. I'm looking forward to more episodes of both!

There's still a lot to in the coming weeks, so most of our nights will be spent in preparation for the move (less than a month, hooray!!).
