Okay, by now you all had to have known it was coming. I disappeared for the weekend again. This time it wasn't entirely my fault though.
My Internet was down Friday through most of Sunday and today I was at my parents' house (I know...excuses excuses...) But I'm back now and I'll fill you in on the weekend! :)

Long weekend post here... )

All week it's been go-go-go between work and getting the apartment ready and packing. I had such a hard time slowing down this evening. I actually sat at the kitchen table and ate a home cooked dinner and watched a bit of TV. Now that I have slowed down though, I can't eve motivate myself to pack one measley little box!!
I have a bunch of packing left to do....I don't think it's going to happen tonight. Dan will be mad tomorrow when he has to help me, but I just can't force myself to do it right now!!

Man...I'm really bad for not updating on weekends...just so much going on that I don't even have time to sit down at my computer!
On Friday night I met Dan at the mall and we did some shopping, picked up our rings (!!!) and had dinner. We came home and there was a message that a friend had called. So we called him back and within 10 minutes had packed for the night and were headed out to spend the night there. We stayed up too late, played video games, watched movies and slept in the next morning. Isn't that what weekends are all about?
The following morning we all went out for breakfast, then Dan and I took a cruise by the outside of the apartment just to refresh our memories. I can't wait for next weekend to get all moved in!!
Then we came home and packed up a few boxes, then got changed and headed out for the evening with some other friends, Mike (the new roommate) and his girlfriend Kim. We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner, great food! Then we went and drove by the apartment again (in a different car this time so they didn't think we were stalking them or anything) Kim hadn't seen it yet and we wanted to show it to her. Then we headed out to play some Glow in the Dark mini-golf and for once I didn't lose, I came in second last. :P
We got up semi-early this morning and ran some errands. Picked up some painting supplies for the apartment and some other misc. stuff. Had to take the rings back because they hadn't sized them large enough. Not my fault, it was theirs. She put them on the sizing stick thing and the guy had sized them a quarter size too small still, so I get them back in another week. Dan got a hair-cut, etc. Then we came back here and went on a massive packing streak. It's starting to look pretty empty around here which is a good thing. We carried some of the smaller peices of furniture out and a lot of boxes. I have just enough clothes left in my closet to last me a week. It's so funny.
Now we're just taking a break because we carried all that stuff upstairs and out into the garage. Then I think I might pack some more.
I hate packing.

Went for a nice long walk with my mom tonight, it's been ages since the last time we did that. I was dying to tell her about buying the rings and getting engaged, but I bit my tongue. She wouldn't be able to keep a secret!! Besides that, I didn't want her bursting into tears in the middle of nowhere on our walking route!
We kind of talked about everything and nothing all at the same time. She gave me some tips on painting our apartment and how to plant a window-box planter on my balcony. I told her what kind of house I thought would suit them best since they don't seem to do a very good job of picking ones out for themselves. They pick the wrong things as being the most important like having a double car garage when they spend most of the time inside in the living room, which in the last two houses has been much too small to fit the furniture/accessories they like comfortably. They're also sacrificing bedrooms by having the bigger garages on a smaller lot, and it's really important to them that my brother and I feel comfortable visiting, but that's not going to work very well if the only place for me to stay is on a couch or a mattress on the floor.
We always have good talks like that...normally when we're shopping though. :)
Anyway, I've been really tired all day with allergies and stuff (maybe the walk wasn't such a good idea...) so I'm going to hit the hay early tonight (no, not the hayfever!). Just need to wash my face and pick out some clothes to wear tomorrow.
Nighters.

We went to see the apartment (listed below) tonight and we fell in love with it. It's only $1200/month utilities in and it's absolutely huge!! The landlord is great too, she seems so friendly and took a liking to us right away. We signed the lease within half an hour of seeing the place.
It's great, there are three bedrooms. Two huge one and one smaller one along with a massive bright kitchen and an average size living room. The bathroom is huge as well. There's also a balcony off the kitchen where there's a clothes line and room for a few lawn chairs and a BBQ. I can't wait.
We take posession May 1st, but probably will wait a week to move in because we're going to re-paint it first. The landlord is paying for the paint, she just doesn't want to paint it herself. No worries, we're so there.
The only one problem is that the previous tennants lived there years and years and the whole place reeks of cat. I figure once they move out though and we open it up and re-paint it the smell should disappear. If not, there's always Febreeze. :)
I can't wait to get out of here. I must have known today when I started sorting out my closet...deciding what I'd want to take and stuff. I'm going to go out to the workshop later and get all my "apartment" boxes and sort through those this weekend too.
