On Thursday night, I met Lindsay and Jenny in Ottawa. We went for dinner at the Heart and Crown [not to be confused with Renfrew's Crown and Kilt, which I just generally call the Heart and Crown and Kilt since I never remember where I am]. The atmosphere was loud, there was a horrible blind date going awry, and our food was incredible.
Why was the date going awry, you ask? Well, the chick ate the ENTIRE appetizer that they got to share. We watched. Awful!
Later, we went on one of Ottawa's Haunted Walks [Ghosts and Gallows... the tour of the ancient jail which still has its gallows set up, and is now used as a haunted hostel LOL]. It was fun, but it wasn't as good as the Walk I did in Quebec City a few years ago, and that one was in French! lol
On Friday I did some light shopping, and found amazing new boxer briefs at Old Navy. They don't move around! They just don't! And the patterns were fun enough. After that trial pair, I bought 3 more on Sunday haha. That night, Andrew and I enjoyed some lovely pizza, and went shopping at IKEA where we found the most perfect shelving unit for our DVDs. His cabinet is super fugly, so we want something new.
Saturday, after little sleep, we woke up early and ate Starbucks breakfast sandwiches which were totally delicious, and then we grabbed the U-Haul van and loaded it up so I could get the hell out of Lees. Bye Tim. I'll Facebook message you about any final bills that show up.
Moving happened in a very fast 3 hours and it was super exhausting. In the end, I only drove the U-Haul 17km, which was awesome since part of the cost is pay-by-kilometer. So then we ended up with a living room full of my life, and we sorted out like 85% of it, but then Andrew was too tired to continue. I'm the type that would have pressed on, but he didn't seem concerned about the mess and not getting it done, so that's cool HAHA.
Sunday, we had our usual awesome Sunday brunch at the baguette place [where the awesome guy was back, but he seemed to be off his game] and then we looked around the market for other possible DVD cabinets and fun furniture [best red leather chair on earth] but nothing was good, so in a few weeks we will get the IKEA one. Yay!
I have three more 10-hour days of work, then a 4 day weekend to celebrate them being finished. Yay! Then 19 regular days of work before I move in with Andrew. The big step. *Runs screaming into the night* LOL
