Out of all of the things I did over the weekend, I think the best part was discovering new editing features on my Picasa (the program I use to upload and edit photos). Do you like my work of art? I don't care if you don't, because I sure do!
Many furniture stores (and Bunnings) in Australia have 'sausage sizzles' during the day. Organizations often do them to raise money for charity, sports teams, etc. On Saturday, the sizzle was done by the Adelaide Vikings Football Club. They brought the food and cooked it, and they collected most of the money at the end of the day.
I always get tomato sauce (ketchup) and grilled onions as well. I won't have it any other way.
Monday and Tuesday, we leisurely pack up our things.
Wednesday is a public holiday (Australia Day), and we will move everything out of our place and into his parents' house.
Thursday, we come back to our place after work and clean every surface until it sparkles. Then, we leave for good.
We stay at Penny and Jamie's until our lease for our new place begins on February 15th.
That seems like a long time to stay with the parents, but I'm looking forward to it. We get around three rent-free weeks to save money. We'll probably save money on food, although I do intend to do my own shopping. We also get our own room and bathroom, so it will be just fine.
Three more sleeps in this little apartment...wow!
I hope you guys watched all of Oprah's Australian episodes! We'll have a second bedroom soon for visitors (since I know it makes all you non-Aussies want to come here!).
