EVERYTHING IS EPIC AND AWESOME.
Unfortunately my darling, wonderful boyfriend hooked up the electricity....to a different address. And it's the weekend. So guess who's been moving and unpacking in the dark? This girl! I have yet to uncover the flashlights, and I have a niggling feeling I left my nice petzel in the kitchen of my Chicago apartment. But the good news is that I found some batteries, so whenever I find the flashlights, I should be golden! In other less than stellar news, my landlord told me he was getting the carpet in my room replaced...the day I was moving in. Which would have been inconvenient...but the guy didn't show up. Which means I can't move any of my stuff into the bedroom...so there's that too. And the last tenant didn't move out all of their stuff and there's some gross sticky stuff all over the kitchen counter. I have not yet decided whether it's a good thing or not that due to not having electricity, I can't see said gooey stuff haha! But I'm off to get some cleaning supplies and it's going to sparkling :) (Maybe so sparkling it will light up the apartment? If wishes were...isn't there a saying that starts that way? I can't remember the rest of it...) And next weekend I'm going to be celebrating my best friend's marriage!!! (Must. Write. Speech. NOW!) And I get to see Shannon! :-D Be jealous, be very, very jealous >:-D
