Our House, Part 1

Things you learn while you’re moving:  Mattresses ain’t cheap.  We need a bed, but we also need a computer and a car for Simon, and about a million other things, so we begged Simon’s brother to let us borrow his mattress for a few weeks while he’s traipsing around the US with his English friends.  He politely agreed.  So, last night, after work, Simes and I hit the road to Greensboro in my dad’s pick-up truck.  With gas prices like they are now, I should have realized it was going to cost a pretty penny to travel the 200+ miles round-trip.  I think Simon put $45 in the truck in the afternoon, and I stuck $30 more in last night, before we returned the truck to my dad.  $75 to borrow a mattress.  Ouch.

I thought I’d grace you with a few photos Simon snapped during the move on Monday.
