I've really been slacking this week! It was brought to my attention that I didn't post my weekly meal plan (thanks Jared...) OOPS! There's been a lot going on this week, and weekends away almost always derail me for at least a little while. This coming weekend we will be in Pullman visiting BF's friends and apartment hunting. The first place we are going to look at is the one I like the most; I wish I had saved it for last, but it really didn't work out that way. As it is, I feel really lucky that we get to walk through it at all considering the owner is leaving town RIGHT after we view it! She was so nice and willing to work with us...that's another reason why I'm hoping it works out :) With all the hunting we've done, I've been dreaming about searching Craigslist for apartments and getting scam emails back. So annoying!
Weekly meal plan:
Tuesday: oatmeal with honey; leftover empanada filling with black beans, 1/2 an ounce of cheddar cheese, and a flour tortilla; DELICIOUS garlic/onion hamburgers with 1 1/2 ounces of colby jack cheese, two tomato slices, 1 tsp mayo, 1/2 tsp katsup, 1/4 cup soggy asparagus (BF overcooked it :/), and 1/2 cup french fries with another 1/2 ounce of colby jack cheese and 1/2 tsp katsup. DELICIOUS
Wednesday: oatmeal with honey; Subway? not sure yet; fajitas that we were supposed to have last week :P
Thursday: oatmeal, either at home or from Starbucks since we leave at the crack of dawn :P; sandwiches and fruit and veggies; not sure yet.
Friday - Monday: out of town. We are for sure having spicy potato soup on Monday (a tried and true delicious recipe!) but I'm pretty flexible on everything else. I'm bringing oatmeal with me so Damien and I have something to eat for breakfast, but the rest of the meals are pretty up in the air. Ideally we'll go grocery shopping when we get there, but we may also eat whatever our hosts have in the house.
BF talked to his RM about taking the job. Thankfully she agreed that the plan is for BF to take over the text department when the current manager transfers, but that could be anywhere from 6 months to a year. Now they just have to play switch-a-roo, move the current operations manager down to Cali and pull in a manager from somewhere else to run the South store. BF thinks that his ASM could run it by himself for the summer if B&N doesn't find a replacement fast enough, but it's not a sure thing. Tentative move date is set for mid-July, but I think any lease we sign will most likely start at the beginning of July. That's actually a good thing, because we can move all our stuff out over the long weekend and start to get settled while BF goes back and finishes things up things at the old store. I'm getting more excited about this move the closer we get--I already packed up the entire office (with BF's help :P) and started on the DVD's. Maybe started isn't the right word--they're completely in boxes, I just need packing material to prevent them from shifting. The nice thing about having a partner who works at a college bookstore is we won't have to buy any, he can just bring it home from work!
My neighbor and I are going to go into Seattle to pick up some new running shoes for me--I'm pretty psyched because I'm actually going to get good shoes this time! I normally just buy whatever (New Balance) shoe comfortably fits my foot, but Famous Footwear evidently stopped carrying the style I'd been buying...so it's time to find a new one. I'm not sure if we're going to go running today or not, but I'm betting the first run won't happen until next week, which is good because that gives me the weekend to break in the shoes.
