one year later01 Aug 2016
so it's been a year since i moved to my new house already! moving was such a pain but it's been nice since everything is done. i probably visited with my family more in just a few months than in the past 10 years combined.
my cats took some time to get used to the new place and divide the territory between them, but they've settled in nicely by now with their own favorite areas. there are side windows by my front door which go down to the floor and Scratchy likes to watch the neighborhood from there. when the UPS dude drops something off Scratchy comes to find me and let me know. Storm has found several choice spots for sun bathing and has taken to alternating between office chairs for her bed.
i also have two new pets now. i hatched these crazy chickens from eggs! that's Squeaky on the left and Dracula on the right. they turn out to be really nice pets and are super tame. i kept them in the laundry room during the winter and in summer they've been outside in a coop. i've gotten into a nice morning routine of getting up and letting the chickens out of their coop to run around while i make pancakes or eggs and eat outside with them and a book.
i've got two offices set up, one with an iMac and one with a PC. i gave away all my desktop computer stuff before moving so it was fun to build a new PC for the new house. i mostly code on my laptop and pick an office based on which one Storm is sleeping in that day. the PC has been great for gaming (lots of VR, DOOM, and Overwatch) and monkeying with cross platform stuff with PaintBot and other experiments.
i still have three boxes left to unpack and a few things left to repair around the house but i'm pretty well settled in now which is nice. :)
