Good morning, and happy Wednesday!
I’m stoked that we’re reaching the halfway point in the week — I’m ready for the long weekend, especially since the big move is coming up and there’s still a lot to do.
I somehow managed to seriously underestimate the amount of effort it would take to move us into our new apartment. (For the record, the amount of effort it takes can only be described as ridiculous; if it were quantifiable, it’d probably be a metric ton.) As it turns out, there’s an insane amount of stuff to do!
I realized today that the metric ton of tasks is due to the fact that this is my first time moving as part of a couple. Yes, up until this point I repeatedly surveyed the landscape of boxes, scratched my head, and thought, Why is this move so much harder than all the other times I’ve moved? It’s taking forever to get ready for this! Cue the light bulb going on over my head.
When Brandon and I moved in here, we were combining my stuff with his stuff — and although it took a lot of work, we were still coming from separate apartments. I packed up my little studio apartment, and that was that. (*Brushes off hands, pats self on the back, has a margarita to congratulate self on a job well done.*)
All my other moves had been from single rooms (during college and before living overseas) or studio apartments (during grad school and when I first moved back to DC) — and in a fact that will shock everyone, it turns out I had a lot less stuff then than I do now.
You’re stunned, I’m sure.
Other stunning facts: apparently two people own more stuff than one person does. Also, weddings and wedding registries apparently ensure that you and your spouse wind up owning a lot more stuff than you did before you got married. And in other news, the sky is blue.
Life lessons, folks.
Anyways, enough with my kvetching about moving processes. It’s time for What I Ate Wednesday, hosted by the lovely Jenn from Peas & Crayons!
Upon stumbling out of bed, I had my customary cup of java. I’ve been loving every sip of the Almond Joy coffee I bought in Texas, and it just keeps getting better. It’s like sorcery in my coffee cup, people!
Breakfast consisted of GF toast, which didn’t make the photoshoot on account of the fact that I gobbled it up before I could even contemplate taking a picture of it. Sorry, toast.
Snacks? You know I love me some snacks. I had an apple with almond butter, a banana, Greek yogurt with blueberries, a clementine, and carrots with fat-free poppyseed dressing.
Lunch consisted of some luuuuuurvely Moroccan lentil soup, which kept my my estomago warm and made my insides happy, as well as canteloupe and kombucha.
Dinner: In the interest of keeping things warm and toasty to counteract the plunging temperatures outside (not to mention the rain…the relentless, miserable, freezing cold, and generally despicable rain), I whipped up one of my favorite recipes for dinner: spaghetti squash with bolognese sauce.
Hope you’re all having a fabulous Wednesday – here’s to the weekend being within reach!
