I had a really GOOD weekend...which I think was WAY overdue. Of course, now it's basically over, but I have to acknowledge it, especially since I'm always pretty quick to acknowledge the not-so-fun ones. Saturday, I went to the gym and then my parents came up to help me take out the air conditioning unit. OH MY GOD, that is the heaviest thing in my apartment! Ok, maybe not, but it's definitely a 2 person job to move it! Trying to maneuver it out of my apartment is not easy. We had to stop a couple times to put it down-that's how heavy it is. And then getting it down the narrow stairway to the cellar is another story. It's so dark and cluttered down there, that finding a place for it is a project in itself. Not to mention that the ceiling is so low, you have to literally stoop down to get in there. It definitely takes a lot of effort moving that thing, but somehow we managed and, luckily we won't have to move that thing until next summer or when I move (whichever comes first). Speaking of moving, once we moved that thing to the cellar, we left to go look at 2 apartments.

I think I mentioned that I saw one of them earlier in the week, but I really wanted my parents' opinion on it. Admittedly, it is small , and that was their concern. I really don't know if all my stuff would fit in there (I have a lot of crap) and I don't know how it would work in the long run, but I do still like it. I'm going to give it some more thought. If I can get the woman to negotiate on the rent, she may have a deal. I guess we'll see. Then we were supposed to see another apartment that was literally a street away from the first one, but the owner was late and my parents didn't want to wait. We did get to see the outside, and to be completely honest, it looked somewhat run down, so I'm probably going to pass on it anyways. I had also called a woman in town about an in-law's apt. in her house, but I'm not sure it's what I want either. It doesn't have a kitchen and the owner doesn't allow pets. Frankly, I thought she was sort of rude about it, but I guess I can understand why, especially if she has allergies, as she says. The thing is, I'm not sure I want to take Toby with me when I move. I love him, I really do, but I think I'm not really a pet person. However, finding another home for him, will not be easy. I probably shouldn't have gotten him if I wasn't going to keep him and take responsibility for him. But now it's too late... Maybe I'll get lucky and find him a good home. As for a new home (apartment) for myself, I guess we'll see- it's still early in the game and I don't have to rush into anything.

Now the fun part :) ... a concert at Mohegan Sun! To be more specific, we were going to see Rob Thomas. I love him, especially when he sang with Matchbox 20. I hadn't been to a concert in a while, so this was something I was excited about. We left the apartment hunting and prepared for a 2 hour ride to the casino. However, none of us had had lunch, so we stopped at a Gas station/food mart to get a snack and to fill up on gas. Then we were on our way. We got there around 4pm. I have never been to Mohegan Sun before and I was pleasantly surprised. I had thought it was going to be like Foxwoods, and it was to an extent, but I liked it better. It's not as big and I liked the layout better. We played the slots for awhile, which was fun. Then at around 5:30 we went to dinner at the Season's buffet. That was good-especially the desserts. They had about any kind of dessery you could want. I wanted one of everything, but I controlled myself. I actually only had a little bit of the bread pudding w/ whipped cream and a bite or two of chocolate mousse-MMM! :) . The concert didn't start til 8, so we walked around a bit before it started. At around 7:45 we headed into the arena. The concert was AWESOME! I mean, I really liked it a lot. He did a good mix of his songs, which included songs from Matchbox 20 and his solo endeavor as well. I'm so glad I went. I didn't get home til around 1:30 am, but it was well worth it! :)

Today, Sunday, I slept in. I woke up, looked at my pump, and realized it was 12:45 pm! OMG! I almost NEVER do that. I guess I was tired...geesh, you think?! Honestly, I don't like doing that, because I feel like I am wasting the morning, but I guess once in awhile isn't a bad thing. Then I checked my email, visited my usual favorite sites online, and got ready to go to the gym. I basically walked on the treadmill, which I don't think got my heart rate up enough to burn off my dinner at the buffet, but at least it was something. I came home, changed, and headed up to Danbury to do my studying and grocery shopping. I got home around 7 and ate dinner, and here I am.

Sadly, tomorrow is Monday...and I start a whole new week. I guess I'm ok with that, though I'm not crazy about Mondays (who is). Hopefully, it will be a good day anyway and things will go smoothly. As you can see, I'm trying to think positively. I think hoping for a good week isn't asking for so much and with any luck it will be a great one :).
