The Move and Pencil Revisited

I'm finally getting things settled into the new place. There are things that you just never know about a place until you move in. None of my stuff seemed to be fitting where i wanted to put it, and that's because this house is crooked and run down like the place i just left. i swear i have the worst landlord in the city. they are the most half-ass, ghetto rigging, do the least to get by people I've ever had the misfortune of renting from. And there seems to be no obvious reason for their misery, i assume that they make a very nice profit since they own many rental properties and constantly flip other houses throughout the city. if i had first and last money for another place i would have gotten away from these slumlords i have now.

this is the slowest unpacking process ever! I've been here for about 3 weeks now and still have several boxes to empty, no idea where to put things like bathroom towels, and absolutely no pictures hung. i need to get back into shape, it's never taken me more than 2 weeks to settle into a new place before. the carpal tunnel thing keeps me from doing a lot too, though.

the royal family has settled in with almost no problems. Prince Cracker was very upset the first few days, here he is hiding from paparazzi cameras in the left photo. he has since relaxed and reports that he actually loves having more space to run and play. Here he is napping on his favorite rug.

Seen here, napping together, the rest of the royal family are equally pleased..

Since the move i haven't been able to knit because my hands just wont take it, but i did get to finish an old project the other day. Do you remember the pencil scarf? Well I've finally tweaked it into a

pillow! its was really easy and can be used for so many different things. it made a pretty good draft blocker in this pic.

That's all for now, I'll close with a photo of the Prince Tiger on one of his several thrones. Isn't he handsome?!
