Annnnd it’s Monday again. Dangit!
My weekend was pretty fun, though it went by way too quickly (per usual). Friday night after work we had a summer boat bash on a yacht (crazyyyy) that was tons of fun.
Ben was supposed to come, but he ended up not feeling well. 🙁 I got home around 9 pm and hadn’t eaten yet, so I ordered some Postmates that was WAY overpriced.
Saturday we slept in a bit before heading over to Ben’s apartment for awhile, then to the grocery store. We started looking online at apartments with Ben’s current roommate, went and looked at a place that we all feel in love with and went to apply. Unfortunately we got the price wrong and it was $500/month MORE than was listed online so that went down the shoot quickly. The rest of the evening was spent playing with the puppy, watching Ben play video games and figuring out if we want to stay in Ben’s place or not.
Just for background – my lease is up in my (crappy) apartment on August 31 and so is Ben’s. Originally we had planned to stay in Ben’s apartment and his roommate would move out. I’m not in love with the area (close to transportation, but far away from other things like shopping, coffee, restaurants, groceries, etc.) so I’m not 100% in love with staying in the area. His place is okay, but if we can find something better we might look into it. However we only have a few more days to make that decision.
Sunday we slept in until 9ish, took Cora for a walk and then went and looked at an apartment (actually the same one we looked at on Saturday, just one-bedrooms this time) before leaving and knowing it just wasn’t the right place for us. We loved the location, but it was way too small and pricey. We walked from there to West Town Bakery so I could get some food (I had part of a BLT, fries and a coffee – nothing super great), grabbed Do-Rite donuts on the way back to the car and then headed back to Ben’s place to get Cora.
Once home, Ben and I both grabbed our computers and started working since we hadn’t had any time to work yet. I started scheduling in social media posts for my client in Smarter Queue before hitting Padmapper.com again to look up more apartments. We sent in a few more emails before giving up for the day.
The rest of the afternoon was finishing up my website which is now live! I still have a few things I want to add to it and I’m sure it’ll be changing frequently, but I finally bit the bullet and got the bare necessities up. We celebrated with watching a documentary and cleaning up my apartment for the showings my leasing manager has tomorrow – wicked Sunday. 🙂
What did you do this weekend?
