I can’t find anything to watch on netflix

This is a total and complete exaggeration.  But still.

As Joe is in Roanoke for job training this week, my mom came up for a couple days to help me settle into the apartment.  In those forty-eight hours, we have rearranged just about every piece of furniture, reorganized every possible thing, and somehow messed up the newly installed wi-fi and cable so that we can either watch TV or use the internet, but not both at the same time.  Convenient?  I think not.  My solution to this is to watch netflix while on the internet, only I have watched all the uploaded episodes of Parks and Rec, so what am I supposed to watch?  I am currently settling for No Strings Attached.  Not very amused so far.  Natalie Portman in footie pajamas?

I think we finally have the furniture how I want it to be, it feels nice and cozy.  Not totally homey yet, but it will get there.  I plan on doing a lot of baking in the next couple of days, which I am excited to do since I really didn’t do much in the kitchen this summer.  I am excited to fill up the beautiful cake platter and dome that the lovely Jessie Chipps bought me as a wedding gift.  Speaking of Jessie-kins, I realized today that this coming week will be one year since I arrived in Copenhagen.  Holy cow.  I can’t believe it has been so long.  I really miss living in a city with such rich history, and even though everyone has rave reviews about Charlottesville, I am having a hard time getting really excited about it.  I just don’t really like US history very much.  I prefer the ancient stuff, and I miss walking to class every day on cobblestones that are older than our entire country.

On another nostalgic note, I miss Wofford.  A lot.  Changing my name on UVa records has be harder than changing my name on all other records combined.  To say the registrar is inefficient is an extreme under-exaggeration.  I can’t help but think that if I were still at Wofford, all I would have to do is drop into the registrar’s office, tell them I got married, and everything would be magically changed to my married name and they would send me congratulatory flowers.  Or a t-shirt.  Probably a t-shirt.

But let’s try to be optimistic.  The fall here is going to be gorgeous.  And I will figure out the whole big school thing soon enough.  And I will learn how to stop getting lost since U-turns are illegal just about everywhere within the Virginia state line.  And I am married to a really wonderful man, who I will surprise with a homemade citrus yellow cake on Friday.
