So here are a few of the noteworthy things that have happened in the 3 weeks that I have been here.
#1. I am not working yet, and being the workaholic that I am, naturally I am bored out of my mind. To make my days a bit more exciting I have taken to this new domestic goddess type of lifestyle. In the morning instead of reading WWD or fashion blogs, I have been keeping up with recipe blogs and pinterest to come up with fun ideas for meals and what not.
The only downfall is that I never seem to have what I need in the house to make any of these meals. So I have to wander out to the market which has quite possibly become the most challenging part of my day. When I was back home, grocery shopping was therapeutic for me....I think it might have something to do with the fact that it was justified, guilt free shopping. Now that I am here, it is a new adventure EVERY time!

#2. We finally got our shipment of things!! It went from arriving in 6-8 weeks to nearly 12 weeks, but we finally have our belongings and most importantly adult sized comforters and pillows!!!! Yay!!!
#3. The hot water......or lack thereof! About 2 weeks ago, we suddenly stopped getting hot water. Knut investigated and found out that the electrical outlet where our hot water heater plugs in wasn't working. To make a long story short, we had to play phone tag with 3 different members of the board of the building for 2 whole days until Monday when they sent out electricians. Two young guys show up, begin to poke around in the basement (the CREEPIEST place you can possibly imagine) and discovered that our whole building was wired wrong and therefor we had to wait for them to rewire it in order to get it plugged in again!.....NOT ideal when it's 45 degrees out in the heat of the day.
Oh and the other thing that the electricians discovered when they were here is that the intercom in the front of the building for visitors to call tenants and be let in does not work. So they worked on it and got it working, but for some reason, no matter which unit you try to reach, it only dials our apartment. So we randomly get calls from the street now....just another adventure! :)
I'll try to post some more little tidbits as the day goes on just to get caught up on all the things I want to share.
