Can't Seem To Do It Anymore

I have great thoughts about blogging. I write whole posts in my head while showering or shopping or cleaning, but when I sit at the computer, I get caught up in the timesucks that are Facebook and Ravelry.

I want to blog though. Do you still want me to? Because if you do, I would consider doing it for you.

I moved to Tucson a year and a week ago. A year ago next week, I lost my job. I'm still looking for work and get depressed about it pretty frequently.

In the meantime, I also managed to sneak a trip to Vegas in January. We got married. Shhhh... I haven't sent out the announcements yet. They're ready. They're sitting on my desk. I just don't have the money to pay for postage.

Not a lot else has happened, though to be fair those are two pretty major things. Perhaps one day I'll write more about them. And show pictures. If you're still interested...

Hello? Hello?

Is this thing still on?

Anyone interested in playing anymore?

If You Must Know...

The details (more or less) of what's been happening the last few months can be found here:

and pictures of the great escape can be found here:

Now--any chance I'll start posting regularly again? I dunno... you'll just have to stay tuned.

Is No News Really Good News?

Had an interview on Wednesday last week that I thought went fabulously well. Now it's Tuesday morning and I haven't heard from them yet. I'm curious if that's a good sign... I hope so. I want this new job.

In all fairness, when I went into the interview, all I really wanted was an OFFER of a new job so I could bring it back to work and ask if I could telecommute from Tucson instead. But this place--OH.MY.GOSH! It's the coolest place ever. If/when I get the job, I'll tell you all about it.

In the meantime, I'm going back to Tucson on Thursday May 7th for the weekend. I'm lining up a few more interveiws for Friday, including one at the school I've found for Emily, and I'm going to try to find a small furnished place to let through the end of July (yeah, not the first like I originally thought) when our house is vacant and ready for us to move in (there are potential pitfalls there, so cross fingers it happens the way we want).

Nothing else to post about. Just a status update. Working on pulling it all together.

Get Back To Where You Once Belonged

I've been in Tucson since Saturday afternoon. I'll be here until this Saturday. The week is half over and it's going far too fast.

My job interview Monday morning was wonderful. I have a second (for the same job) today at 3:00.

David and I went to Home Depot earlier this week to pick out new stuff. We found our washer/dryer set, a refrigerator we both like, a new range & oven, and even talked about a dishwasher, though that's not a priority just yet. Oh, also paint colors and tile for the outside of the house.

Now we're goofing around in Photoshop to see how it all pulls together.

The tenant in his house has until July 1 to exercise his purchase option (and we mean finished with escrow by July 1), or vacate. I'm kind of hoping he vacates. I don't want to be a renter.

I'm not sure what else to say. It's prettier here than I remembered and I'm having a marvelous week. I'm looking forward to being here.

New Toy!

I moved from one Verizon phone plan to another (yes, that is shameless promotion--I love Verizon and I will give them free plugs anytime).

As a result of that move, I got to pick out a new phone.

Ooh, Shiney!

New Phone Outside

Oh--and hey, check this out--it also has fabulous texting functions!

New Phone Inside

Leaving for 8 days and 7 nights in Tucson on April 11th. Very, very early in the morning. I'm ready to go right now. I've decided Tom Petty is right--the waiting is the hardest part.

Also, I have a job interview lined up for the week I'm there. Gonna try to arrange more than just the one. Keep good thoughts for that...

I'll try to post soon. Maybe.
