This weekend was a whirlwind. I don’t even know where it went. On Friday, I moved into the new apartment that I will be sharing with my sister. Since she and her boyfriend were both commuting well over an hour in opposite directions, they decided to live apart and live closer to their jobs. So, that works out really nicely for me. And Bardot. Since my sister’s gigantic poodle is living with us two, Bardot now has access to his gigantic beds.
The large bed makes her feel so small and dainty. We moved stuff in Friday night and spent most of Saturday moving her out of her apartment. She said she didn’t have very much stuff, that was not accurate. It’s still far less than I have, so moving my stuff this Saturday will not be a good time. I’ll be so happy when it’s all done and Bardot and I aren’t living la vida air mattress.
Walking on that thing really trips her out.
On Saturday night, Sari and I headed south to Gruene for a wedding shower for my old roomie Caroline and her future husband. It is so nice to be able to go to these kinds of things now without requiring a 4 hour drive.
We had a delicious dinner at the Gruene River Grill before heading out on the town.
There was some artistic interpretive dancing (that seemed to be inspired by this).
And a man with a lot of curls.
It was really fun, but I made the terrible terrible mistake of not drinking a drop of water from 4 pm onward. Not good. Sunday was not a happy time. I haven’t felt that terrible in years and years. I took advantage of my new life in Austin and ordered some Jimmy John’s and took a long nap. I didn’t feel much better, but I had to start unpacking. Truthfully, I just wanted to find the cords for the TV so I could at least watch a movie while I moped around in my self-made misery. Thankfully, that happened just in time for a second nap.
Wasted that day like a champ. In good news, I now get 1.5 extra hours of sleep in the morning now that I am no longer driving from my parent’s house. That will give me joy for weeks and weeks.
