I’m definitely going to miss this part of my commute

Thinking about: our move. We found a house, wrote an offer, & are now moving in one week. After looking for a year, the actual buying process flew by once we found a house. Or maybe I should say, once I found a house.

N was up north, so I saw the house, made the decision we should buy it, wrote an offer with our agent, & then got all the deposits & everything ready. Literally no one else (including my parents) saw it except me. (Unless you count on snapchat, which you shouldn’t. Who buys a house based on snapchat videos?! We do, apparently.) Luckily N trusts me, & when he saw it for our inspection, he was happy with the choice. & now here we are. I’ve been feeling sentimental towards the little things I will miss, but excited about all the great things ahead. Until then, I’ve got a million lists in my head & packing on my mind.

Drinking: tea. I’ve been on a tea kick lately at work. I think because I was sick last week. At home, we’ve been drinking beer lately. I think we need a break from that though so I’m thinking about doing a whole 30 challenge after the move. (I’ve yet to tell N this…)
Reading:Le Petit Prince. I picked this book up as a placeholder gift for our anniversary. I’d ordered a wedding photo book, but it wasn’t going to arrive in time for our trip. When I finally stumbled upon a French copy, I knew I had to have it. A longtime favourite, I’d translated a passage for our wedding ceremony, making it even more special to me. I only just started it last night, but so far I’m really enjoying reading in French (being a children’s book, it’s an easy read if your French skills are a little rusty).
I also just received a few books I ordered online (cuz who doesn’t need more stuff as you’re trying to pack up your condo). I bought Paper Towns, Looking for Alaska, & Bringing Up Bébé. I’d like to cut back on the amount of TV I’m watching so I’m hoping these books help. I realize I just told the internet that I bought a book about raising children, but don’t get any ideas there. Seriously. I heard it was funny & the subject intrigues me. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Let me know if you have any other reading suggestions – I’m always looking for a good read.
Loving: Packing. Just kidding! Does anyone like packing?
This city! I’m volunteering for Beakerhead this weekend & it’s been a great reminder of how much fun our city can be. Combining science, art, & engineering, this festival is a hands-on, citywide event with a little something for everyone. It culminates in a Saturday night street party. I love how this city totally embraces events like this & am so excited to be attending (& volunteering!) this year!

Watching: Love it or List it. Excessively. I don’t know if it’s because we’re in this new house mode or what, but I marathon watch that every chance I get. It’s ridiculous & out of control. All the more reason to get into these new books!
