Hello everyone! I am FINALLY back after almost five months. Yikes, sorry. I've been distracted by Tumblr. I have been up to LOTS. Okay, not really, but I did move. To Fort McMurray Alberta.
I've only been here for a week, and I guess it's alright. Really, really bloody cold though. I applied for a few different jobs, but I haven't heard anything back yet so it's been pretty boring. I did find a really cute used book store that has some super tasty chai lattes. And tons of books of course. (Four have already been added to my collection, oops!) I don't really have anything else to do for now... My man works in camp up here so he is gone for three weeks out of the month, boo! But at least the apartment stays nice and clean, haha.
There are two things about Fort Mac that I wanted to mention. First, a few years ago some high school kid did a project on how plastic grocery bags are horrible, so the city banned plastic bags. Which I suppose is a lovely thing, but the man and I didn't know. We went to the store behind our building and bought some pop, ice, and a bottle of vodka. When we paid we kind of stood there waiting for her to put our stuff in a bag, but she didn't. So we had to carry a million pounds of things home, stopping to pick up Pizza Hut pasta on the way. Not fun. Good thing I have a bunch of Marc Jacobs and Betsey Johnson totes.
The second is the sweet way of doing laundry. Maybe lots of places have this, but I have never heard of it. Instead of having to track down change for the machines, they have a debit card slot. Haha, it facinates me because I am such a small-town hick.
Anyway, This is already too much writing for one post. Pictures of my apartment to come!
