So, I've made it to Los Angeles. I arrived on Tuesday afternoon with a bag of clothes and my laptop. Erin, of course, had 2 checked bags and 2 carry on bags. Erin's dad picked us up at the airport and we headed to the apartment. We moved a bunch of Erin's possession into the apartment including a gigantic heavy chest. Also, moved in our spiffy new 32" LCD that will eventually be our 2nd TV. We are still waiting for my furniture to arrive. It looks like it will be next Monday, making it 18 days since it was loaded on the truck.
After we moved the stuff in we went to the Grand Central Market for lunch and I had a delicious burrito. This will be my Lenny's of LA. We had our cable and internet hooked up after lunch and then headed out to Irvine for the night.
On Wednesday we went furniture shopping which was productive but we didn't buy anything. We are having trouble finding one we both like that is in stock and faces the right way. I also went into the RF office to work in the afternoon.
We took a walking tour of LA light installations on Thursday night which was kind of boring because the pace was so slow but we did see a few nice views that we hadn't seen before. Earlier in the day we spent a lot more time in furniture stores.
Yesterday I had to give a presentation for work. After that grilling, we checked out some more furniture stores. For dinner, we went to Pete's Tavern which was ok. It's a nice place. We've also opened up discussions on a car. So much to do.
We are just about set to head out for some more furniture shopping and maybe look at a car or two. Hopefully, we'll be able to find a couch today.
