Well, it’s been a quick but tiring week, friends. But I’m happy to report that I am finally, finally, finally in my new apartment! I spent the last two nights unpacking all of my boxes and putting everything away. All I have left to do is pick up a few small things, assemble some IKEA furniture, and take out all of the cardboard you can imagine… and then I’ll be fully setup! It’s crazy to think that I’ve been planning this move since February and now I’m finally here. Before the weekend starts, I thought it would be good for me to look at the best and worst things that happened this week. As always, let’s start with the low and finish with the good stuff.
Low of the Week
This one is fairly obvious, at least for anyone who saw me in person this week – I was stressed to the max. In fact, I think I finally began to understand why Dad gets so anxious and irritable, when he’s getting ready to go to sea. I woke up at 4am on Tuesday, never fell back asleep, then spent the entire day feeling like I was constantly running out of time. Any bump in the road made me want to scream or cry, and I did the latter – twice. (It wasn’t pretty.)
High of the Week
For the second year in a row, I won the Social Media Award for Best Personal Blog! On top of feeling incredibly honoured that the judges would pick Blonde on a Budget as the winner, the reaction from “strangers” has been overwhelming. I’m connecting with so many new people, both online and offline, which couldn’t have come at a better time than in the same week I moved to a new city – where so many of them live. The coffee invitations are much appreciated.
My goal is to finish setting up my apartment tonight, so I can spend the rest of the weekend doing whatever I want. Tomorrow morning, I’m meeting a friend from Toronto (yay!) for brunch. I’d love to explore Vancouver a bit with her after, so I’m sure we’ll have some fun before I take her to the airport. After that, I don’t really have any plans… but I am dying to catch up on all of your blogs! Maybe I’ll do that on Sunday morning, while sipping coffee on my new patio.
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
