so yesterday, i scheduled the final walk-through with the apartment manager, who's a super sweet lady, and decided to bring her a little treat.
not to mention, we were missing a key, and i was hoping that cupcakes would help us avoid a replacement key fee. heh.
i decided to take a quick look at the empty apartment before i called her up to do business, and as i walked through the sad, lonely rooms, i found myself getting a little sad over our departure. silly, right? but despite the close quarters and the noisy neighbors and everything else that comes with apartment living, we had a lot of really good times in here. last time the place looked like this, operation downsize had just begun.
when she came up, i told her about my weird mixed feelings and she said that just about every tenant she'd ever done a final walk-thru with felt the same way. i guess i'm not as sappy as i thought. or i am, but everyone else is too. haha! and i was even more surprised to find that the hub had similar feelings - and he hated the thimble even more than i (thought i) did!
oh! and i finally got my haircut. yay! i'd had to reschedule it from last week, since it was really bad timing with all of the moving and stuff, and i was excited to chop some of my mane off. when it's long enough to put into a ponytail, it's too long.
wow, i look tired and old in the supposedly new-and-improved-me shot. dang. but my hair looks fabulous, thanks to my dear pal rochelle. if you're in the san gabriel valley-ish area and need a good cut at a super reasonable price, i HIGHLY recommend her.
heh. i haven't plugged rochelle in ages. but she really is wonderful, and i love her. she's become a friend in the three years i've been going to her, and she's such a sweetheart as well as a fantastic stylist. tell her i sent ya.
best part of my day (aside from my sweet new 'do)? coming home and finding this:
thatgirl for introducing me to that term).
