wow- it really has been a while since i did this. jmo's upstairs doing his rainmain-ironing-for- work routine (i don't relate well to people who can iron... and do it well...) and i just finished another round of my part time job, so i figured i should use this time to catch up with y'all.
i was having a little trouble getting into the swing of things the past few weeks, but i think it's just about sorted now. once i'm off and running it's all good- but it takes a few weeks to get there after things get all changed around (again).
the 2 minute recap of happenings:
grad school is going full steam and i'm most content with my decision on schools/programs. it's a perfect fit. a ton of work, but well worth it. it's that one time of year right now when work is actually busy- it goes from 0 to 60 overnight and all of a sudden we're barely able to keep up. then come the end of may it will die again and summer will be bliss. i'm also working saturdays at the moment, which i suspect may have something to do with my lack of blojo (bloggin mojo).
and just when we think we're going to peru this summer... perhaps we will be (gulp) moving again instead. another year, another move. this will potentially be address number 11 in nine years. for a while we actually kept all of our moving boxes folded up under our bed- i think that speaks to the gravity of the whole thing.
but yeah- the 'domestic situation' just isn't really working for us. so it's time to sort it all out and see where we end up. we may be able to buy something (meeting with a mortgage person soon) or we may just be happy renters again. but either way, it'll most likely be a return to dirty dot's lovely melange of vietnamese, island peeps, the potato family (more on them later), the pseudo irish and a couple of gay guys- talk about a motley crew. might as well live in the middle of what i'm going to school for ;)
so that's that.
hope all is well with everyone-
