I cannot believe I couldn’t fit this blog post into last night. I just cannot. If these last couple weeks are any indication of what my life will be like this semester (the absolute insanity around the house, not cooking, staying up until midnight and not getting near enough done), then Andrew might have to get used to take-out. Like, everyday.
Seriously. It’s just really difficult for me right now–while staring at half-finished projects and myriad unhung pictures, un-placed candles and other decor items, not to mention starting to think about school–to put any brain power into cooking. Or meal planning. Or even–gasp!–working out! I had moment yesterday in which I was actually sad and longed for the time I will bake my first loaf of bread in this house. May that time come soon and may my bread rise well.
Anyway, so yesterday, I:
-made my first attempts to return some lingering emails and make non-house commitments again, like writing for the Advertiser
-went on my first run in two weeks (note to self: do not take two weeks off again. run sucked)
-which was also my first run in EA as a HOMEOWNER
-first commute into downtown Buffalo
-had my first classes of the semester (Applied Food Chemistry, Organic Chem ‘lite’, American History II)
-had my first ‘pumpkin’ drink of the season (I stopped at Dunkin on my way to La-Z-Boy and was feeling something warm and sweet and when the sweet girl on the other end of the microphone suggested pumpkin, I couldn’t resist)
-Picked out our first furniture purchase for the new house! (We haven’t ordered it yet, but we know what we’re getting)
-Ordered our first window
-Visited Carolyn’s apartment for the first time now that she’s a married woman (holy cow) and saw their NEW CAR
-just this morning: my first post for the co-op in a couple weeks… I feel like a huge slacker that I totally dropped the ball on that stuff while moving.
That’s all I can think of right now… Lots of home-improvement posts coming soon!
