Pack, unpack. Pack, unpack. Pack, unpack. Ugh.
The Summer of the Vagabond 2011 has officially come to an end. I’m back in Tallahassee for keeps and it feels so good.
Yesterday was a boring, lazy Sunday. Basically the highlight of my day was saving $37.98 at Publix. I’m still trying to figure out the coupon game, but I’m making progress. I did end up impressing the high-school-aged check out boy, does that count for anything?
This morning I packed up all my stuff and loaded my car for hopefully the last time.
I even brought my favorite travel buddy with me — Charlie. The fact that I’ve finally moved him to Tallahassee is another sign that my vagabond status has come to an end.
The sky was angry and dark for most of the trip, but luckily we didn’t hit too much rain. Gah. Driving in the rain sucks; and it’s scary.
I wonder if I drove one of those duck tour trucks if I would like driving in the rain a bit more. It would also have much more storage than my focus. 😉
All in all, it was an uneventful trip and Charlie was a perfect angel.
As soon as I arrived home, I unloaded the car, unpacked a bit, and prepared for my parents arrival. They’re making a stop in Tallahassee on their way home from North Carolina.
The latest addition to my living room are these new end tables — do you like ’em?
My mom rescued them from the trash and my dad sprayed them white with his paint sprayer. I think they help round out the living area, but the area needs a bit more color, in my opinion.
I think I might try and find matching lamps and putting them on the end tables and then move the brown floor lamp near the front door. I also want to get some colorful pillows and get some stuff onto my walls!
Can you guess how long it took us to go to Lowe’s after my parents got to my house? Less than three hours. We’re addicted. Is there a Lowe’s anonymous group, because we need to join it.
My favorite part of the Lowe’s trip? Buying plants! I am now the proud owner of two marigolds, a basil plant, and a rosemary plant. I feel like I should name them. Maybe it will give me added incentive to keep them alive.
I promise better plant and house pictures tomorrow!
Completely unrelated — look at the different in “feels like” temperature between Tallahassee (left) and St. Pete (right) at 9pm. Ridiculous. I hope running in Tallahassee is just a smidge more enjoyable than it was in St. Pete.
On that note, it’s time for bed.
Oh, and clearly Charlie is already feeling at home.
