cross your fingers

It's my day off, Internet. My day off. And I had grand plans for today, but I'm not sure I will accomplish any of them. Well, I have to leave the house at some point to buy food. My fridge is sadly empty right now and screaming at me to feed it. And I did take a shower. And...I've not accomplished much else.

I don't want to leave the house yet because I'm waiting on an important phone call.

Last Friday (I worked all weekend long, if you'll remember), my bestie in Portland, the one I'm trying to find a place to live with so I can move my sweaty ass northward texted with some big news, texted me. I knew she was looking at a Townhouse that day and she was going to text how it went. It went well. We like the place. So we're putting in our application today. And I'm waiting on the landlady to call me so I can answer all her questions about my rental history.

That was one piece of a satisfying weekend.

Even though I was working long days (but sometimes work can be fun, especially in my job), this weekend went really, really well. I'm tired to be sure, but I was very pleased with the weekend's activities and productivity.

On Sunday, I got the sweetest, most unexpected, most unnecessary surprise. I work with a large group of volunteers and they all know that I've been trying to move to Portland. So this Sunday, they surprised me with the sweetest thank you and farewell and good luck which included a bottle of wine from the Willamette Valley and a card they'd all signed . I never expected it and I was very touched. Very, very touched. These people are too, too sweet and I'll miss them immensely when I move.

Good people make life great.

And then, after I was done working on Sunday, I went over to the Target to get soap and wandered over to the World Market for a bit (I like to peruse World Market and pretend I can afford the cool furniture) and buy some European candy. And what did I find for the first time ever? Kinder Buenos! Before you scoff, you need to know what a big deal this is for me. Seriously. Kinder Buenos are my favorite candy in the entire world. I lived on them in France (really, I'd eat like one a day) and they're notoriously hard to find over here and World Market has never carried them before. Totally made my day! Don't ask me why they're called Kinder Buenos. No clue. As far as I know, they're not made by children, but they are, in fact, quite bueno. Mmmm the hazelnutty goodness of Kinder Buenos.

Hold on. I need a moment.

Okay, I'm back. Thanks for waiting.

So, long story short, good weekend. Please cross your fingers that we get this place! Do it! You're not doing it are you? Do it! Thank you. I need all the positive energy and good wishes that I can get right now. I really, really want to get this place!

And now you can return to your regularly scheduled programming.

I'm totally doing. AND crossing my fingers. Which is probably freaking out THE MAN. But not as much as the typing.

Congrats on the maybe-new-place. Hope all goes as planned and you are soon in the place that's cool enough that your boobs don't sweat. (Wait, that's me. Sorry.)
