Weekly Update Thread: September 24th-30th

Hey Ladies!!


How's everybody doing on this Monday? Probably TUesday by the time you read it :) Any plans for the week? Can you believe it's almost October?


DH and I are checking out two apartments on Tuesday night! I'm so excited!


We have come to the realization that we can't stay in the area we're in now and love because we can't afford the quality we want. Even with rentals. They're either really old and crappy or really nice and too expensive :( We just plan to rent elsewhere for a couple years and save up to buy a house. I am too excited to move into a bigger place! YAY!


Other than that, not much! Just working! Still waiting on my pro pics...I know it's only been three weeks but it seems like a lot longer waiting for them! lol.

Hello! Congrats on apartment hunting! Thats always fun. =]


DH and I aren't really doing anything new these days- just in school! Luckily neither of us has too overwhelming of a work load.

Hi everyone!


@Uhlease: I undertand your situation, it's the same over here (in and around Zurich). It's just crazy... We are living in a village way outside of town, and still it's too expensive.


@thechelsi: I'm glad you're week is not too stressful.


My week is pretty calm too, I'm at work, but I got enough time to be on PW (I like that). Other than that on Friday afternoon I will meet up with a friend, her LO is about the same age as Fabrice. If it doesn't rain we will go for a walk with the kids and the have coffee and cake somewhere nice. That's the only plan I have so far.

@swissgirl: That's nice that you have friends with LO's the same age. My 2 year old niece always talks about doing things with her friends. It's super cute!


@chelsi: good luck with school! My friends and I were talking about how much we missed college the other day. I mean some parts of college! lol. Not everything. I'm thinking about going to get my masters. My company pays for some tuition assistance, so it'd be dumb not to!

Happy Thursday everyone!! I have had this page opened all week and each time I come to type my update, something else needs my attention.  LOL. 


@Elise - That is awesome that you found an apartment and even better that you have friends across the street!!  YAY!!!


@Chelsi - How is school going?  Glad to hear that you both are having an easy workload so you can spend time together and have time for your school. 


@Olivia - You definitely need a calm week, especially with everything that you have been going through!!! It's SO AWESOME to see you back on the boards more!! : )   It's nice that you can hang out with a friend and what a bonus that she has a LO the same age as your perfect little angel.  I so love seeing pics of him. 


 


As for me, work has been a tad bit slower (good and bad) and DH and I are preparing for renovating our living room this weekend.  We are finally able to afford to take off the knotty pine boards that are on the walls, insulate them and hang sheetrock.  We will still have to get the baseboards and crown molding, but that is going to wait.  Little by little, we are getting things done.  I'm just happy that the living room will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. The previous owner enclosed the sunporch (what is now the living room) and did not put up insulation, as they did not live here year round.  We are also looking for a hotel for the weekend of the 6th and 7th of October for a mini-moon to celebrate our 2nd anniversary.  DH also said he wanted to go to my Mom's grave and take some flowers. 


IT'S ALMOST FRIDAY!! YAY!

Elise, congrats on the apartment! That's so exciting! We need photos!


Chelsi, I'm feeling so nostalgic these days. Last year I went back for my second Masters at the same school where I received my first and my Bachelors many, many years ago. Being on campus after a decade away is bringing back memories like whoa! Enjoy these years - I love my life now, but man, those were some of the greatest days of my life :)


Olivia, I love having you back on the boards more and more! And your plans sound lovely and serene - so jealous!


Becca, you're my homeowner role model! I'm so impressed with all of the work that you've been doing! Lord knows you deserve this mini-moon!


 


As for me, last Tuesday I had vascular surgery to remove some unpleasant veins from my left leg. I was expecting a speedier recovery, but I'm still in some pain :( My surgeon told me I'd be back in the gym by now, but that's not happening. I hate that this is perfect running weather and I'm just sidelined.


Other than that, I've mostly been busy with teaching, my grad class, and preparing for our big move! I can't believe that we're finally going to be in our new house next month! Yesterday DH and I went to Benjamin Moore to pick up some more paint samples, and all of a sudden it became so real! I keep expecting to feel some kind of sadness over selling our old place (which we loved), but it's just been total happiness over our new place :)

Lauren, how exciting that you get to pick out paint colors and all that fun stuff! (Maybe stressful too? I don't know) but very exciting that you're moving!! I'll definitely post pics of my apt when we move ;) And then you can post pics of your new house!


Becca, have fun on your mini moon!! That will be so great for you and DH!

Hey ladies! Sounds like everyone is having a busy week! I had two teeth impacted and had to have them removed on Wednesday! I have never been in so much pain in my life!


It was like childbirth that never stopped! WHOA!


But I am better now and on a soup and ice cream diet!


Uhlease...good luck on apt hunting! I wish we were looking for a loft! We both want a loft downtown but just cant do it right now since my mom is living with us.

Hello everyone!!!


Elise, congratulations on your new apartment! Go shopping even if you don't need anything. Lol.


@Chelsi, great you are having an easy week and I hope I can finally start school in January.


@swissgirl, sounds so relaxing!


@Becca, have fun on your mini moon, sounds so heavenly!


@Lauren, congratulations on your house!!! How exciting, I think. Lol. Being a home owner can be stressful sometimes!


@Ronda, so happy you got those teeth removed. Tooth pain is horrific!!!


As for little ole me, enjoyed not working at my second job last weekend or these last couple of days. Got to spend time with my hubby and our furbabies! I go in for work at second job, doing a double. Finally got den ceiling repaired! They are going to finish up today with the sanding and painting. In August some pipes burst and the ceiling came crashing down. The pipes were repaired the next day, but was going back and forth if DH should fix himself or pay someone else to do it. I didn't want DH to do it because he has a bad back, so lucky for us we got two great family members to do it and it looks fabulous! Had my mammogram Wednesday and not looking forward to results. You know how you just know? She had me sign all this paperwork and took more pictures, but I am actually in good spirits because of my amazing DH! We have his kids this weekend so after I get off work Saturday, we are going to have some fun, fun, fun!
