I made it to Wednesday! Two days of work successfully completed and am on to day #3 today. I would be lying if I said it was easy – it’s tough having to learn an entirely new campus and meet new people – but it’s also fun and exciting. So I’m exhausted, but happy.
First day of work selfie
Yesterday was an incredibly exciting day for Jason and I. Without sharing much detail, we accepted an offer on our house in Minnesota AND our offer on a house we love in Iowa was accepted! I’m so excited and it feels like a huge boulder of stress has been lifted off of my shoulders. I don’t want to share any details yet, because there are still lots of things that have to happen with both properties before it’s official, but it feels so good to have some good news here.
This is totally dorky, but Jason and I virtually celebrated our good news yesterday. We video chatted, and I had an amazing beer at SingleSpeed Brewery (Tip the Cow, a new fave!) and it was as perfect as we could make it.
Other than that, I’ve been getting to know Cedar Falls and hanging out at my Airbnb. Cedar Falls has an amazing Main Street, so I’ve been wandering around checking out the shops and seeing what is all around here. There are definitely some cute boutiques that I’ll be going back to once we actually have a house that have great home decor.
My nights have been spent reading or watching Parenthood. Luckily my Airbnb has dogs, and they are both super snuggly and adorable. I miss Hoss like crazy, but it’s nice to get some puppy snuggles where I can snag them!
