Hey there! Hope your weekend is off to a good start. This is my first weekend working, so I’m about to head out the door. Something about driving to work at 6am on a Saturday doesn’t seem right but I believe a pit stop at Dunkin’ Donuts might help me get over it
This will be short and sweet but I did have a few updates I wanted to share with you…
Last week I mentioned our dilemma with our living situation. We couldn’t decide if it was worth it to move for just 1 year to shave 20 minutes off of my commute. We had a really, really hard time deciding and kept going back and forth between staying where we are or signing a lease at a new apartment.
An important thing I’ve learned in life is that when all else fails, you should make an Excel spreadsheet. So that’s what we did. After adding up all of the expenses related to our move (application fee, pet fee, pet rent, increased rent, moving truck, etc.), we realized a move would end up being over $2,000. Yeah, no.
So we ended up re-signing our lease at our current apartment for 1 more year with plans to hopefully buy a house after that. I would much rather deal with my commute temporarily and have those funds go towards our down payment. I’m glad we finally came to a decision, though.
Everything on my MRI came back completely normal. Here’s the report if you’re into medical lingo:
A trick I learned with reading MRI results is to go straight to the “impression” section
It is a relief to see nothing is seriously wrong, but it also just adds to the frustration that I’m still not better and nothing has helped so far. I have a follow-up appointment with the orthopedic doctor on Tuesday to figure out what I should do next.
That’s it for me today. I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
