so, here's what i've done in the week since we last chatted:
* played around with our registry. yes, i go in often to make sure that what's there has not been discontinued and needs to be replaced. i also remember things like, "i need a pastry blender" or "maybe two trivets would be better than one". and i can't find placemats that i like. i registered for some for us, but will probably just end up making our own and returning the ones i registered for. if they don't work. and if we get them at all.
* packing! i can't believe that i move in two and a half weeks! i'm so excited to go to the new apartment that will not be "mine", but will be "ours". it's just one step closer to being married :-) of course, i've still got a lot of packing to do. i've seriously got, maybe, 8 boxes packed? haven't started on the kitchen yet, and that's going to be the biggest undertaking. i'll do that this weekend though. all of it. i'll buy plastic plates, cups, and silverware that i can wash and reuse, and pack up most everything in my kitchen. seriously. do i need my crock pot? springform pan? probably not. rice cooker? yes. pie plate? need that until sunday.
* making new friends. i met a friend through my work training sessions that i teach. we clicked right away, so we talked via email a few times, then met for dinner on saturday night. it was such fun! she's a lovely person and i am looking forward to having a new friend in my life that's not related to me via work.
*eating spaghetti casserole. seriously. i'm so sick of it. only about one more serving of it is left though, so i'll finish that up tonight (YAY!)
* watching The Hills
that's about it for now. sorry that after my week absence i have such a boring post. i'll be back again soon.
