See? It just doesn't seem like that big a deal. It is kind of a big deal, though, because it means now we might want to get more serious about considering, like, moving or something. But right now, I'd rather not think about that.
It was a little strange, signing the lease today, because technically we should also have been paying rent. We're still waiting on a check. (Aren't we always?) But we have high hopes that we'll get one soon!
Today I'm thankful for month-to-month leases, the adorable seal on our wildlife calendar (and the fact that it's not a polar bear; polar bears are adorable, but they're not the only adorable arctic creatures!), the sparkly Christmas card we got from our apartment management, finally getting the paperwork we've been waiting for, and still having coffee cake that we can have for dessert tonight. We were going to have it for dessert last night, but we got pinned by kitties, and by the time they got up, it was bedtime! Boo. I didn't realize until I was in the act of flossing my teeth that we didn't have to go completely sugar free--we may not have had time for coffee cake, but we could have at least each had a Reese's peanut butter cup. But by then it was too late again, alas. But tonight, we can rectify all that!
