Good morning and happy Saturday!
It’s been a whirlwind of a week over here because I found out that instead of moving on August 18th like I had originally thought, I am actually going to be moving THIS coming Saturday! It turns out that the people who’s apartment I was planning on taking over ended up canceling their move, thus leaving me without an apartment. However, there ended up being a different apartment available due to a cancelled move-in, but if I wanted it the complex could only hold it for two weeks. I was not about to be put on another waiting list and since the apartment was the exact same layout as my other one, I decided to take it! That’s right, in one week from today I’ll be moving into my very own apartment. Whoo hoo!
In the meantime, my parent’s house currently looks like this…
Yeah, my stuff is officially taking over the entire house. At first I was worried that I should have gotten a bigger apartment (or maybe a townhouse with a basement) because I have so much stuff, but I think in the end this will be good for me. Considering this is the “take everything you own out of our house” move, it’s forcing me to suppress my pack-rat instincts and get rid of stuff that I really don’t need.
Dear pharmacy school notes: It’s been fun, but I don’t think I’ll need you anymore to count by 5’s and battle with insurance companies all day long .
I did manage to have a little fun this week in between working and packing. On Wednesday night, my parents and I headed out to Interlochen Center for the Arts for dinner and a concert! We went to The Hofbrau to eat – a local pub that’s always packed every single night of the week.
We all shared a crab dip appetizer and I had a side salad and stuffed chicken for my main meal.
It was good, but the chicken was fried and was pretty greasy.
After dinner and a stop at the ice cream shop, we headed down the road for the highlight of the night: Montgomery Gentry!
So much fun!
The country duo was loud and energetic and really knew how to get the crowd going. I’ve never been to a country music concert before, but it was a blast! There were tons of people dancing the aisles and everyone was singing along to all the songs. My only regret is not purchasing the album before hand because I didn’t know very many of the songs.
My parents had a great time too!
My mom made a comment during dinner that went something like, “aw, this is our last little family outing before you move!” She says things like that all the time and my dad and I just laugh because my apartment is seriously five minutes away from their house. I’d hate to see what she’d do if I ever have to leave Traverse City!
Today’s plans include shopping for bedding and kitchen stuff with my friend Curtis, and then Eric is coming up this evening to keep me company for the night (my parents are out of town this weekend so I’m home watching the cats). Should be a good day!
