celebratory meal!

Woo! Today was a long, tiring day, but successful in the end -- I put a deposit down on an apartment! Wahoo! Woo! Woo! I really like the place I settled on, it's in a great neighborhood, and it feels completely huge compared to where I'm living now -- there are some really cool features like a DINING ROOM, original 100+ year old cabinetry in the kitchen, brand-new mini-blinds, and built-in dresser in the bedroom closet! The rent is right, the caretaker seems nice, and I've heard good things about the management company. What's not to like?

After all of the excitement of today, a celebratory meal was in order!

Curried tofu, roasted sweet potatoes, and a gigantic artichoke (!) made a lovely conclusion to my day. (And a dish of Ben and Jerry's "Clusterfluff" ice cream took it over the top!)

Once I hear final go-ahead from the management company, (have to wait for the credit and criminal background check to come back, if you can believe that!), then the REAL fun can begin! Oh, packing . . . yowza! I'm also planning on replacing some furniture with this move, so there will be plenty of shopping and waiting for delivery men, too. Moving is exciting, but it's such a HASSLE!
