GBU - I'm a big girl now edition

Good - I'm moving into my very own apartment in less than one month! WHEEEE! Bad - I have to buy a ton of schtuff that I didn't realize I never actually owned before this point. Ugly - The price tags associated with these things. $700 for pots? Are you SMOKING POT?! Good - Cheap furnishings made my sensible Swedes. Bad - Those flipping instructions with the two-dimensional happy men that make no frickin sense and the allen key that comes with everything. Ugly - Going to Ikea on a Civic Holiday. MADNESS! Good - Proving you're independent, you remain unfazed when your bf goes away to his cottage in the middle of nowhere in Northern Ontario and kind of forget to ask when he'll return. Bad - In the middle of the week, you realize just how much time you've been spending with him and get REALLY, REALLY bored. Ugly - You remember you eat when you're bored. Yeah, really ugly. Good - To get out of a funk, you watch your nieces do a fashion show dressed in beautiful saris that your uncles brought back from India. Bad - When they could teach you a thing or two about perfecting your come hither look. Ugly - Realizing they are growing up WAAAAAAAAAY too fast. Good - Long weekends = more sleep Bad - Not being able to sleep Ugly - Still waking up at 6 a.m. Good - Back to routine Bad - Wanting to be back in bed Ugly - Looking like you just got out of bed at your desk. Cup of coffee number two coming up! Did I mention I'm doing the job of two people this week? WHEEEEEEEEEE!

Marie,

Do you want a whole set of Pyrex pots? They are approximately $700 less than the ones you were looking at :P

I also have dishes and glassware if you want it. :)

@Sarah:You're a sweetheart!

I didn't buy those pots but a cheaper set, but I figured Sandy and I could wrestle for whatever you're willing to part with if you're still hosting in a few weeks ;)


*smooches*

*laughs* I have the "I'm a big kid now" jingle stuck in my head now!!!!

bah...I couldn't BELIEVE how much my first trip to Walmart was after I moved into my first place...or my first grocery shop...you mean salt and peanut butter don't come free with the house????

Sara said...

our credit card bills have been quite frightening since moving - they shopping is fun, paying large bills at the end of the month is not!!

Yay for the GBU! Boo for bf going away. Ahhh for neices growing up!!

oooh your own apt. that's very exciting. i got a set of jamie oliver pots 1/2 price off at the bay... those big department stores have really good sales if you keep your eyes peeled.

marie said...

@Eurydice - that's totally what I did. They were $400 off. WHEEEEEEEEEE!

Sarah said...

Oh I totally get you with the pots! I have been using this horrid, horrid mish-mash of university/inherited pots and pans and I HATE them!! I am hoping to buy a fancy-shmancy set in the next few years.. sigh :(

Good luck on your home furnishings shopping!! Hope you have fun doing the rest of it:) More than you have so far... :)

You don't know how many times I've been grateful that we bought our pot and pan set ($1000) BEFORE having children. I could never afford to get them now. One good thing, if you buy a nice set they last foreverrrrr.

Congrats on the new place. So grown up now!! I can't wait to see pictures of it. Isn't it amazing how expensive everything is? Sucks. And Yes, kids grow up entirely too fast. I still can't believe my oldest is in 2nd grade. Where does time go?? I want it back!!
