I am exhausted. Never did I think three days of go go go could knock me out like this. I feel like I am in a fog. But coming back to my friend’s apartment after dropping off my dad at the airport and being triggered yet again, I can only feel relieved that I will have my own place next Friday. That is so soon. That is less than a week. I am grateful for so many things right now. A dad that may frustrate the hell out of me at some points but who truly knows how to get a good deal. An apartment I love love love despite all the worries I may have about money. A location that is prime for all my needs – metro, grocery shopping, running, etc. A mom that reassured me that I can and will be able to afford this place and make it my own. A smart savvy sense of spending that will has already and will even more come into hand as I try and furnish this place without spending a lot. Lastly, friends (both blog and DC) that have been so willing to help me in the move.
So want to see pictures? Welcome to my abode, official move in the 27th of July so that I can get half the rent off the first month.
Let’s be real. I have a lot to figure out. My parents are unable to come down next weekend meaning it is me, myself and I moving in. My roommate is away next weekend so I will somehow need to get myself a block down. I won’t have anything but a bed for a while (at least a bed! thanks to some lovely friends in DC selling theirs). I need to set up cable/internet and electricity before next Friday so when I get there it is all settled.
Minor details right? Ha. Lots of planning this week but so worth it.
Don’t go too far, in the next 24 hours I will be having TWO giveaways that will last till next Wednesday so be sure to check back in. All the advice and feedback has been so remarkable so why not spread some PROTEIN and TUMMY love. Love the anticipation.
