pool though
Do you know how much fun it is to hang pictures with someone who's OCD? Soooo much fun.

I thought it would be weird living in "someone else's" house, but it hasn't really been. It feels like ours, and more every day as we get more things unpacked and pictures hung. We unboxed our framed cels that we haven't seen in six months and D wanted to hang them in a Brady Bunch-style grid, so measuring all that out was a treat.

It's been a ton of work, and it feels like it'll never be finished, and moving in August in Florida is not something I'd recommend, given it was in the mid- to high-90s every day, and we're out in the yard working, in the garage organizing, getting the pool in order. It took D about a week to rehab the pool, but we've been in it almost every day. At the pool store we bought a dolphin-shaped chlorine tablet feeder, so I named him Haru, since his job is to just float in the pool all the time.

D's mom and her husband were here over the weekend--they'd sort of patched things up just before we moved in; he wasn't in the mood for drama while we were stressed over closing--and it seemed like they had a nice time, even if the weather wasn't the best. It was drizzly the full day they were here, so instead of taking them to the state park or the beach, we drove down to a really good seafood place where they could get some oysters. I did find it funny when my MIL mentioned that there wasn't really anyplace in the house for us to put some exercise equipment. I said, "Um, we have a POOL."

We're waiting on some furniture to be delivered for our "library", and D's hoping that will become our place to write, which I need to get back to.

This neighborhood is so quiet. We're loving it. Those months in the apartment are fading like a bad dream. D says we'll look back on it like he remembers the army.

So that's what up down here. Looking forward to our first football season without UAB (in more ways than one) and seeing what fall is like in this town.

*Weeps* So happy. So when can we expect your new novel?

You could root for Haru... I mean the Dolphins. I don't think Jacksonville has many fans.

Not pro, college football. It's refreshing to live in a town that actually supports its local teams. We'll pull for FSU because why not.
