Can't Sleep!

I went to bed earlier, got woken up by the cat kneading my thigh waaaay later and thought it was 5:50 a.m. only to realize that it was really 11:25 p.m. (lights were off and I didn't have my glasses on). Incredibly difficult to fall back to sleep when The Hubs smacks his lips every 2-3 minutes. I wonder if he's dreaming of food. Or making out. With someone else. Hey, I do it.

So here I sit, watching episodes of Hidamari Sketch on Hulu and suffering from insomnia and an upset tummy. We had dinner at a bbq place called Famous Dave's and I'm guessing it must have been something I ate, so I'm medicating myself with lots and lots of chamomile.

As of the moment, Luna is sitting out on the back porch, being all quiet and weird. We'd been trying to get her to go outside and acclimate herself with her new surroundings ever since we moved in but for the last two weeks the weather and occasional happy dog running around in the yard has kept her inside until now.

The Hubs decided to shell out for a slightly pricier cable+internet package this time around. We get a few more channels in addition to the regular basic line-up, plus all the HBO ones. At first I was over the moon when I found out that we finally have BBC America but the programming seems limited to reruns of Star Trek:The Next Generation and Top Gear. Even movies on HBO seem to be not as varied as I had thought, and I'm thinking that having worked in the video section of an entertainment store for nearly two years has something to do with it. At least we'll be able to watch the latest seasons of Louis CK and Game of Thrones instead of waiting for them to come out on dvd rental.

Ugh, tummy still upset! Damn that chopped pork deliciousness!

Greetings from Colorado Springs.

We found our new digs in Colorado Springs the day after we moved here. We're in the north part of the city near the Air Force Academy and near a LOT of things, so getting around for me won't be as big a pain in the keester as it was in Killeen, TX. There's public transportation as well. Hurrah.

It started snowing the day after we moved into our new apartment. The temperature has been in the single digits for the last 3-4 days. Until yesterday, The Hubs had been the only one to venture out in the snow. I stayed in, wearing the same flannel pj bottoms (I'm still wearing them.) and drinking endless cups of Earl Grey while gorging on episodes of Midsomer Murders.

I love our new place. It's definitely a huge upgrade from our old apartment, with higher ceilings and a bigger spaces. Don't get me started on the walk-in closet. Loads of new hiding places for Luna, who won't be going outdoors anytime soon. 

Lounge!kitty, not snow!kitty.

I'm still working on hanging our wall art. The Hubs has his own little den area where he's put up his prints. I've banned him from putting anything up in the rest of the apartment. 

Yesterday we had to make a store run and I ventured out for the first time since we moved in. I had to wear a pair of thermal bottoms (The Hubs') under my jeans and two pairs of socks under my boots.
I thought I was ready. Didn't I look ready? 
It ended up being a race in and out of the car. Wasn't that bad, but...brrrrrrrrr!
