The One Where I Almost Attack the Maintenance Man.

I made it back... yay!
We got moved in... double yay!

It's still a mess, of course, but we've made a lot of progress for only being in for two days. There have been a few issues- the first night the AC wasn't working so I stayed at my parents' house again. However, one quick call to the office and they had it fixed the next morning (+1 for apartment living).

So yesterday was my first night to stay in the new place due to the AC issues. At about 11:00pm I took a shower and climbed into bed. A couple hours later I thought I heard banging on our door, but I was so tired that it didn't really even process- I figured it was probably next door or some drunk person with the wrong house. I fell back asleep and woke up a bit later to a strange man's voice IN OUR HOUSE.

Now mind you: I am half nakey, waking up startled for the first time in this foreign space, while still suffering from a combination of severe exhaustion/jet lag. I literally jumped out of bed in a dead panic while scanning the room for a weapon because I was utterly convinced I was in a hotel room in Italy and some random local was breaking in to rape Rachel and me. It wasn't until Moose started barking (and I realized the room was larger than a shoebox and therefore couldn't possibly be an italian hotel room) that I snapped out of it and realized that I was back in Dallas. Whew, somebody get this girl a xanex!

Luckily, it was only the sweet little maintenance man, Pedro, coming to investigate because the business below us had water coming from the ceiling (Even more luckily, I was able to put some clothes on before Pedro burst into my room... that coulda been a tad awkward). As it turns out, the faucet in my bathroom was leaking and I flooded our restaurant neighbors below during my shower. I'm sure they are loving having us upstairs already.

I will post pictures as soon as the apartment is somewhat put together. We are taking a break from the unpacking tonight to celebrate Alex's 30th birthday!
