Josh and I took his son Joey to the zoo on Monday. We had such a great time! Unfortunately, I didn't once take out my camera... I think I was too busy enjoying the wonderful weather and watching Joey run around. He's an awesome kid. A lot of the animals had been put away (due to the cold, I suppose), but it was such a nice walk around and we had such a pleasant time.

Tuesday was all about where to live. I've been doing a lot of looking online, making phone calls, sending e-mails, but I haven't had too much luck. I checked a lot of options on Craigslist, looking for a roommate deal, but it was so hard to do long-distance that nothing really worked out. I called nearly every apartment complex within my price range and the availability is basically non-existent right now! So, Josh and I went driving around and wow! We found so many places we had not seen online. I can't even begin to tell you how many apartments we visited and called. I did find a good apartment though that I'll probably be trying to get dibs on. There are still some others I want to call on and check out, but I found one particular one that I really like, that fits my price range, and is available less than a month after I move. Josh's family has been kind enough to offer me a room in their house until I can get my own place. Thanks for awesome friends!
After hours of getting in and out and talking to landlords, we decided to have a little fun and go downtown. He took me to a place called Confluence Park, and let me tell you, I was blown away! It's so gorgeous! I'm not used to snow, and everything was covered in a thick sheet of white and was absolutely brilliant!

Wednesday was Josh's birthday so we hung out at his place most of the day. I was happy to be around for his birthday. I got to play with Joey a lot, so I thoroughly enjoyed myself. His wife cooked a very nice dinner and a gluten-free cake so I could have some too (how nice!). It was a relaxing day of watching movies and Josh doing some things to my computer. Unfortunately, that led to me not having CS5 on my computer anymore, but we're going to fix that. I'm dying without it right now...I miss it!
Coming home was wonderful, but it was sad and tiring too. I spent most of Thursday heading home (except for that morning, when Josh and I managed to purchase a $5 couch and get it in the basement somehow). It was so wonderful to come home and see Winnie! When I move, I will definitely be missing her the most. We're going to have to come up with some creative ways to stay in touch frequently. I know we will be using Skype, but she and I color together a lot, and that's something I wish we could keep up. Maybe I can come up with something.
