Ah Sundays

Sunday is one of the best days and one of the worst days all at the same time. On the one hand, it is another day of the weekend; a day to gather oneself and prepare for the coming week. On the other hand, it is a symbol of the end of the weekend and is often characterized as a day of chores and tasks such as cleaning the house, buying food for upcoming meals, and for those still in college (me) finishing up or starting homework.

This morning, Kristen and I ventured out to Bruegger's Bagels and picked up a bag of a baker’s dozen of bagels for everybody. In addition to the bagels, we picked up two of Bruegger's Bagels signature cream cheese spreads the Garden Veggie and the new Spicy Chipotle. Returning from the run, Kristen and I made some coffee, ate some bagels, read the Sunday Star Tribune, and visited with the roommates that decided to join us.

After breakfast, Megan and Frank went to the gym while Kristen and I stayed and watched this week’s episode of LOST. I was rather disappointed with this week’s episode of LOST, with Grizzly Adam’s meeting with the survivors and telling them “This is not your island, this is our island”, for which I say “Well tell us how to get the heck off, we never wanted to be here in the first place.” I thought the dialogue of the episode was secretly written by George Lucas, it was that terrible. I fear that LOST’s First Season will have been the best and the second is shaping up to be pretty disappointing. Second Season started out awesome, but unfortunately is starting to head down the tubes. I hope it improves soon. At least I have Battlestar Galactica on Fridays.

Having finished the LOST episode, I took Kristen home and then returned the movies that I had rented the night before. I came home and spent sometime cleaning my bathroom, specifically my bathroom floor that was in much need of attention. Later in the day I returned the Intrigue to the folks who let me barrow it over the weekend. After returning the car, my Mom, my Brother, and myself went to the Applebee’s in Roseville for dinner. Frank and I enjoyed our usual Chicken Fajita Roll ups while our mother had another favorite the orange chicken bowl. I think of the chains in the Twin Cities, Applebee’s has got to be one of the best with always good food on the menu, a friendly staff, and reasonable prices.

During dinner, the three of us discussed the future and what it holds especially for Frank who has began looking into the local housing market. Our lease here at the house on Lindig ends on May 31st and soon we will have to give our 60-day notice so as not to encounter a situation that we faced with 808 Berry Place over a confusion regarding the 60-day notice on a standard lease.

Over the summer I will be living at home in Brooklyn Park with the folks, just like old times, before heading off to Norway most likely in August. Kristen and her roommate Megan Halverson are going to be looking at apartments for next year in St. Louis Park with the hope of paying less and commuting to the University by the park-and-ride off of Louisiana Avenue. I don’t really know what plans Kevin and Pete have for housing, but I am sure they will find something.
Busy day tomorrow, first Monday with an 8 Am Lecture which means I will be up at 5:30-5:45 AM with a big cup of coffee and then catching the bus at 6:30 (I hope). Tomorrow night I also have my first night class at the Humphrey Institute from 6:30-8:30 PM, meaning I will be home late.

Hope everyone has a wonderful/stress free week

Until next time,

Andrew
