Eventful weekend

I had a relatively eventful weekend.

First and foremost, I’m pretty sure I have an apartment! I’m going to be moving back to the complex I lived in before we bought the house. I’m shocked they had a place open so soon; my move in date is June 28th. Yeah, this Saturday. So I’ll probably be hauling my stuff back over to South Bend in a rental truck this weekend. Weird. Can’t believe I’ll be moving again so soon. I just need to call the complex tomorrow and double check that the place will be mine, and I’ll be good to go. I’m excited to be living closer to work and back in South Bend!

Yesterday, I randomly made a trip to Cincinnati to pick up my housemate. Yeah, the Cincinnati in Ohio. Well, technically I didn’t have to drive all the way into the city, but still. 4 hours there, 4 hours back. I returned to South Bend at 2:30am and still went to work the next morning. I went to pick up my housemate whose poor car ended up dying on her drive back from Tennessee. I’m surprised I’m still awake right now, actually.

I hung out with some cool people this weekend. I knit, I talked, I had a good time. I actually pretty much finished my tank top! I just need to seam up the sides. I may wait until I move to my new place and have all my stuff unpacked before I attempt blocking the top before I seam it. I can’t find any of my pins and I’ll need them for the blocking process. So I’m happy about that.

I’ve gotten a lot accomplished the past few days. I’m pretty happy. It will be strange, living on my own again; I’ve never lived by myself in an apartment before, so I’m curious as to how it will go. I’m hoping it will go fairly well; it will be an adjustment, but an adjustment I need. I think I need to know how to live on my own so I can experience it just once in my life.

It is strange to me sometimes that I’m getting a place of my own, going back to an apartment, after owning a home for two years with my husband. Just thinking about what last summer was like compared to what this one has been so far has been strange as well. I don’t regret any decisions I’ve made.

    After a couple unfortunate roommates in college (like the irrational one who told me my empty Wendy’s bag was stinking up the room then used the George Foreman grill in the walk-in closet… seriously), living alone in grad school was a no-brainer. Admittedly, I was paranoid to leave the windows open at night (when I lived on the first floor). But I enjoyed the freedom of doing whatever I wanted. And I was much more productive… or maybe it was the fact that Doug wasn’t there to constantly make a mess for me to clean up… (I read on CNN that men make 7 extra hours of work a week for their wives)

    Enjoy the new place!

    i think everyone should live alone. i did it, but for 1 or 2 months at the most. (this was between howie & john.) i ended up moving in with howard sooner than we had planned due to some unforseen circumstances.

    either way, i think it is great that you have a place. make it fun, and make it your own! :) i’m glad you are adjusting to your new life so well.


  3. Congratulations on your new home! I hope you find lots of happiness there.

    You sound happier than you’ve ever sounded since I’ve known you (can you believe it’s been 7 years now?). And personally, your maiden name has always sounded cooler than your married name, IMO. Living alone will be good for you.

    In other news, I may be living alone before the end of the year. More on that as it develops…

  5. Congrats on the apartment! That really is fast!

    I’m glad you’re happier now–that’s what really matters.

  6. I’m glad that you’re happier now — and that you got an apartment that you like. :) was that the place with the awesome twisty staircase?


  7. I can’t believe you found a place so soon! Congratulations. The commute will be so much better.
