She's here...

I'm here.

I'm alive.  

I know I haven't blogged much lately.  I know there are updates to write and pictures to post.  But I've been occupied doing other things.  And when I say that I don't meant that they have necessarily been productive things.  Although, I have managed to clean my entire apartment to get ready for The Roomie to move in.  And I've even been cooking yummy meals for us.  Turns out my theory of "I like to cook, just not for myself" is true.  But most of my time between cooking and cleaning has been spent laying on the couch with The Roomie watching episodes of Project Runway, Tabitha's Salon Takeover, and even episodes of The Hills on MTV.  (I'm completely guilty of watching too much reality TV lately.) 

So this weekend was spent moving Jamie in so she is officially The Roomie.

Meet The Roomie:
In her words: 
"We've been friends for less than 6 months,
and we are already moving in together.  
If this were a relationship, it would be doomed."

She had lots of help from her family so we didn't have to do all the work.  But now the unpacking is left to do.  Since she manages a clothing store, she has a lot of clothes. Illustrated here in the picture below. I was being lazy and playing the role of moral support and snapping pictures along the way.  

A State Fair blog will be coming soon.  I meant to get those up yesterday, but blogger wouldn't let me upload my pics.  What's a State Fair post without pictures of the food we ate?  (Yep, apparently I've become one of those bloggers.)  I'm a little behind, but what else is new?

Update Time:
Townhouse Hunt '08 is still underway.  But at a snails pace.  I keep checking every week to see if anything new is out there to look at, but the same 3 townhouses are the only ones up.  Something is bound to come up, right?  Hopefully it won't become Townhouse Hung '09. But after moving Jamie's things, we are not exactly looking forward to another move.

I haven't talked about him a lot lately, but The Good Weed and I are still dating (I really should come up with a new nickname for him).  I wouldn't consider us a long-distance relationship since he's only 37 miles away from me, but it sure has felt like it!  Before yesterday, I hadn't seen him in 3 weeks.  Thats just entirely too long for a new relationship.  But his work schedule has been crazy so I'm just hanging in there hoping things will get better.  He's in town for a few days so its good to see him again.  I'm hoping it will stop raining here today so we can go out and make a fool of myself play some tennis.  He's a really athletic guy and I've always thought tennis would be a fun sport to learn so it might be something fun to do together.  (Read: Its the only sport that interests me to at least try. And since its usually just played in pairs I won't have to look like a fool in front of a bunch of people or strangers)

That has been the life of this single sister lately.

  1. Please tell me she is the same size as you and loves to share her clothes! That was one of the best things about college - all of the extra options when it came to dressing.
    If she does share and you are the same size she might be the best thing that's happened to you since finding those awesome - yet ultimately painful - shoes in Chicago!
