There must be something in the water around here because things are happening. Big things. Superwoman got a job in San Francisco, and her first day was Monday. I know she’ll kick ass and I couldn’t be happier for her, but life just won’t be the same without Superwoman’s hospitality, warmth, and ability to listen and give advice.
Amazing A is moving to Tucson, where she and her husband found the cutest bungalow ever. Who can replace her role as my adviser on faux meat products and soap making?
In a few short weeks I’ll say goodbye to the soulless office park and say hello to life on a city campus. Not only is the new job a wonderful professional opportunity, it’s a quality of life move because it will eliminate my biggest source of aggravation: commuting via car.
Other big things: yesterday I put in an offer on my first house. If the offer is accepted–and I will cry if it’s not–all I have to do between now and August is finish up my current job, hire an inspector, apply for a mortgage, hire movers, pack, phone my evil landlord, plan a week-long Maine camping trip, and study up on ColdFusion. No problem.
And maybe the biggest news of all: I am finally getting cell phone.
