I had about a week off and I was able to finish unpacking and organizing our apartment. I spent some time at our pool (how much do I love having a pool/hot tub right outside??), and got back into working out regularly. Yesterday I got my hair cut and highlighted by a professional for the first time in over two years and plan to get a mani/pedi today and do some shopping downtown.
Marc was supposed to have to work all last week, but he ended up having the Fourth through the weekend off. It was great to be able to hang out and do some exploring of our new town. When we transferred our cable to our new apartment, we were gifted with six months of all the movie channels (we've always just gotten basic). We have been on a movie watching spree. I'm about to remove Marc's movie picking rights though as there have been some definite fails.
We also did some shopping for our girl.
I still love to SEE my books. I want to smell them. They are physical representations of great experiences I have had, lessons I have learned, and stories I have lived in.
So I had talked with Marc and asked him for one bookshelf - and that I would re-purge my books and be practical about what I really wanted to keep. And I did it. I purged those eight boxes down to one bookshelf (it IS two deep - shhhhh). I love looking at it when I get into bed at night.
-- Starting my new job tomorrow
-- Bringing home our puppy at the end of the month
-- Seeing my brother- and sister-in-law at the end of the month
-- Seeing my friend Ashley again later this week
-- Other plans with friends
I might miss going to the pool every day though. :)
