So I decided to blow the dust off the old blog o rific and give the one reader left something to read.
Well, things are different. As most of you know, last Saturday Amanda moved up here to Evanston for good. I am uber excited on the overall feeling!!! There have been many adjustments for both of us to make. I guess for some reason I didn't consider that too much. We have both been living on our own over (wicked alliteration) 6 months now. I also took for granted that I had a job and the security of having built in friends, being my co-workers. Amanda has none of those luxuries. She had to leave behind a dream teaching gig to follow a smelly carmax guy.... the deal doesn't really sound so lucrative. It was a crazy week adjusting into a routine. But that is about the worst of it.
The best of it was on Monday I came home and the apartment smelled like brownies and girlie stuff. I didn't realize how much I missed the smells that are associated with having someone else in the house. On Wednesday, I didn't have to do anything, Amanda had the entire day planned out and we ate dinner with Brent and Tanna. We went on walks of varying lengths almost every night this week, considering it was about 75 & sunny every day this week! On Saturday night we went to dinner with a friend from work and her husband... it was good for Amanda and I to be able to hang out with people our age and converse. On Sunday.... Amanda went to MECCA..... Some know it as IKEA. It was very much fun, we played it cool by leaving our wallets in the car. We do have to save a little considering we are single income and have a cruise coming up.
Things are great though... the last few days for Amanda have been very productive as she looks for work. I hope we can finish some applications this week and maybe get some interviews going. It would be nice to know she has work before we leave for the cruise. We are celebrating the 4th with our neighbors Natalie & Robert and then we head to hang out with Michael and Kristen. Emily is coming in two weeks; the BoSox fan will be partaking of a game at Wrigley. Amanda's parents come up the following weekend, the cruise is the next two weekends, then Marlies comes to visit... busy summer!
