Looking Forward To…

Haaaa, I’m so glad! Many reasons, here is why:
First and above all, we found an apartment!! Yeay! The place is very close to one of the school where I work, in a quiet neighborhood. I’ll be able to WALK to my job. Then the building is a real apartment building, thus meaning, well divided with a laundry room downstairs and a parking lot behind. The rent is slightly more expensive, BUT:
- NO MORE going down in the street with two bags full of dirty (and smelly) clothes!
- NO MORE biking 45 minutes up the hill after work at night!
- NO MORE carrying the bike up (and down) the 2 stories (we’ll be on the half first floor)
I was so glad when D signed the rental agreement that I was jumping all around the place!
I do have other little reasons to be happy. Tomorrow being the first of July, it’s Canada day. It means that D and I will have a 3 day week-end 🙂 We cannot afford having real holidays, going in some exotic, foreign, new place together, so for now long week-ends are the best we can get! (even if it means not being paid for what could have been a working day…)
Also, Sunday we are having friends (David and Adria) coming over for lunch after the service. I’m so glad because they have been so kind since we met them. Over the past year, we have been struggling financially, didn’t know anyone here, didn’t know where to look for a job. etc… and they both helped us in any little way they could. They invited us a couple of times at their place, and at David’s parent’s place once too. I wanted to return the invite, but never found the opportunity. First, hubby and I were eating on a tiny coffee table, no room for four… Then, we had no time because both working in different schedules, and… I don’t know what else. It sounds to me as if I’m trying to make excuses… But I did feel guilty for so long! Now I’ll have to show the best of my cooking skills 😉
