The bare fridge

Oh my goodness! Things have been crazy! Matt and I drove back from Colorado on Monday after 3 great days of skiing and seeing a wonderful old friend.  I got home to Cascade around midnight after dropping Matt off in Humboldt.  Then I was up bright and early the next day to move to my new apartment.  I would show you pictures but it is a crazy crazy mess.  I am talking clothes haphazardly strewn everywhere with no idea if they are clean or dirty, dresser in the living room, mattress on the floor, half-unpacked boxes thrown all over, and junk stuff just everywhere!
It’s always quite amazing when you move to see how much stuff you actually have!  And every time I move I collect more junk valuables.  Maybe someday I will actually stay somewhere for longer than a year.  Because really, moving is getting old, especially when you have to lug everything up and down a flight of stairs!
I don’t have internet yet, so after I get done writing this on my computer I am going over to the “clubhouse” to use the internet and post this.  But I am avoiding cleaning and putting things away really wanted to update you so I am blogging sans internet.  I had to lighten up your day by showing you this.

This is how my refrigerator (I never knew that word didn’t have a ‘d’! How did this justify shortening it to ‘fridge’!) looked after I moved in.  All I had was a few oranges, purple Gatorade (which I’ve had since August at least!), and beer, which, mind you, I probably have also had since August, well the Fat Squirrel at least.  I am always buying a six pack of beer to have people over for dinner and entertain but my guests usually only ever have one and the leftovers sit around for-e-ver because I never drink them.  It’s really kind of funny.  I enjoy a good beer, but I really don’t enjoy drinking them by myself.  It ruins it for me.  So somebody come over and visit me in my new place!
My fridge reminds me of a boy college student’s.  Except his would probably be slightly different,  Busch Light instead of Fat Tire and Fat Squirrel, Mountain Dew or Red Bull instead of purple Gatorade, and left over pizza instead of oranges.  How can people live like that? I have no idea. 
All I had to eat last night was brown rice.  It was delicious, but not very satisfying!  So I went and picked up groceries tonight after my first day of work.  Now my fridge looks a little more presentable.  I say a little because I didn’t go head over heels buying groceries tonight.  I limited myself to a few things.  Not really sure why, but now I can reevaluate and decide what else I need.  Here was the result.

See, it’s much much much better.  I can even eat a balanced meal. 
Ah, food, how I enjoy thee.

p.s. Have you ever had chive cottage cheese? I bought some tonight and it’s delicious!
