At least it’s October

Nothing like mom time
The last ten days have been a whirlwind, I tell you. Last week was spent preparing for my mom, Dave (my step-dad), and parents-in-law to come into town. I even spent all of Thursday cleaning the apartment and our apartment isn’t that big! Parents make me deep clean, it seems.

My mom and Dave arrived Friday, which unfortunately was a little cold and rainy most of the day. We ate soup and deli sandwiches and then ducked into The Museum of Natural History. Pro tip: when the weather is questionable, a museum is always a good choice. This one also has the added benefit of being near our place, so we didn’t have to travel far. Saturday morning, Adam’s parents arrived.


We knew the group would be coming into town this weekend since the middle of July, just two weeks into living in the city. We’d walk around and say things like, “we have to bring the parents here!” or “I can’t wait to show them that!”, so it’s a little strange that it’s over now. It kind of feels like the end of Christmas.

Let’s think positive though, shall we? The most wonderful month of the year arrived over the weekend and there’s still so much to look forward to. We’re also ready to get back into a routine and I’m feeling refreshed and ready to get back on track with finding a job and continuing to settle into the city. Having them here was so much fun and getting the chance to show them our spots around here (and trying a few new ones) made me fall in love with this place even more.
