Anyways, we went out last night to the pet shelter to look at the dogs and their facilities. Ian doesn't want to adopt a pet while we still have the loaner furniture and I rather agree. So we are going to volunteer for the time being. I'm a little in love with this red shiba inu named Yoshi, he looks just like a fox! - but I need to research the breed a little more. He isn't going to be up for adoption for a little while because he still has his balls and he needs to be quarantined. There was also a lab/rottie mix that was really sweet. She needed to be spade and she'll probably be adopted before we are ready. I'm pretty excited to get a dog, something to keep me company while Ian is at work all day. It's a little hard right now, we don't have internet, so I don't have any music to listen to or anything to really fill the space. I have to walk the 5-10minutes to the library to get on the computer, not to mention the connection is too slow for pandora. Argh, but all in good time.
Here's the house:
This is the kitchen. I love the grey tiles, metal counters and grey wood grain cabinets. It's retro without being too noticeable. Plus it's going to be really hard to mess those counters up and get dinged for it when we move out.
The only thing that I was unhappy with was the washer and dryer being essentially in the kitchen. I'm not sure how to keep them clean or camouflage their presence. Any ideas? We don't have a garbage can yet so those plastic bags are garbage and recycling. It's really tough to being on this base without a car. The shuttle doesn't come anywhere near us so we have to carry things home. Slowly we are getting all the necessary home things.
