Some of you were asking questions about my current situation, so I thought I would talk a little more about it. If you don’t care or if you simply don’t wanna hear about it just skip over this part 🙂 And maybe I am putting too much about my personal life out there for the world to see but ya know what? it makes me feel so much better to write about it so that is what I am going to do.
My husband is job training in Europe for 3 months this fall. I can visit him there for about 2 weeks and he is coming back to Charlotte for 1 week but that’s all. (he will be working long hours, sometimes nights, etc) So, I will go back to my hometown because I have a job there as a substitute teacher UNLESS I find a job here in Charlotte first that pays better than teaching.
Regarding school, I moved to Charlotte in late spring of 09. I have to live in North Carolina for 1 full year in order to get in state tuition. (Out of state tuition=$$$) That means I can’t start until fall of 2010. Ideally, the schools would be really nice and let me start in January without the jacked up out of state tuition price but we will have to see. And… I am studying to be an English and French teacher. Eventually, I want to become a professor but until then high school. I just love the university atmosphere. The students are anxious to learn instead of you having to push them to get through school.
And if that wasn’t enough of a peek inside of my personal life, here is more! Photos of our new apartment!! The kitchen, dining room and living room are almost finished but the bathroom and bedroom still need a lot of work.
The dining room. I am going to put black and white photos of our world travels in the long picture frame that is on the floor and hang it up on the far right wall above the counter tops.
The kitchen. One of the reasons we chose this apartment. The dish washer, fridge and counter tops are brand new and I like how open the kitchen is.
One corner of the living room.. Hans and his big tv. haha.
And my mountain bike on our balcony.
We definitely have a clean, simple, Scandanavian style. (Hello! my hubby is Swedish and there is an Ikea on the other side of town, lol)
Onto the food! I was planning to have leftovers (scroll down for recipe) for dinner last night BUT after I heated it up, it was just too soggy for my liking. So, I picked out all of the veggies and threw out the soggy bread. I know, I know.. kind of wasteful but at least I didn’t throw the whole thing out.
I made a killer sammie with leftover veggies, hummus and spinach on Dakota bread. I had the veggies that wouldn’t fit on the sandwich on the side. Much better than soggy bread pudding.
I have a fun weekend planned! It’s almost here!!
