an update

April 25, 2004

Still no word. Really now.. this is just making us crazy. I want this job. Very much. I hope I hear soon. I left a “Hey, I’m just checking in” message on thursday with no response. I know I was warned that they’re slow.. but this is really making us crazy. Everything is so up in the air. I wish I knew the secret to getting an answer.

We’re going to Philadelphia on the 30th to attend a wedding and returning to Boston on the 3rd. We’re excited for the get-away and to see many many friends. We really love Philadelphia and cant wait to hang out in our favorite spots there for a few days. Yes, I’m hoping to be celebrating a new job while we’re there too… as indicated in the above paragraph.

Otherwise, everything else is quite normal here. We’ve started going through our things to put some stuff aside for a future yard sale. We have alot of stuff and I think we can part with some of it. It still pains me to go to work everyday, but I do it because I have to. I’m working at half what I used to make now and that is painful too.

So that is the update and we’ll let you know more as the week goes on….


post pesach

April 14, 2004

I know. I’m waiting too. Now that Passover is over, I’m hoping to hear something soon. As soon as I hear, the whole lot of you will know.

Poor Dave has been sick for days. He was sent home from work yesterday and today he slept until past 2:00. I hope that sleep really helped.. he seems to be feeling a bit better. In the mean time, I’m feeding him chicken noodle soup and medicine.

We’ve been making some plans for a wedding we’re attending in Philadelphia the first weekend in May. We’ve been hitting our favorite east coast cities in anticipation of our move. I’m glad we’ll be able to see so many friends in one place.

Other than that.. we’re just waiting for the word, seeing some friends, some family (Dave’s mom and dad will be in town this weekend) and working our jobs. I promise I’ll post as soon as I know something!!


The bagel takes Manhattan

April 6, 2004

This weekend marked a return to New York City. It is hard to explain my comfort and ease in that crazy town, but it just feels so natural everytime I’m there. We hit my favorite haunts, frolicked with our favorite friends and ate our favorite food. We stayed with our friend Jenni and had a really great time. I know that moving to the midwest will impede on our trips to NYC, but we’ll just have to make more of an effort in the future. I sure do love that city ‘o mine.

In other news … I fixed the disaster formally known as the apartment rental from hell. All sides are happy except for the girl who bounced the check and is having Grand Larceny charges filed against her.. but thats not my problem, its hers. I’m in the clear and everything worked out for the people who it needed to work out for. This has been a great source of stress for me in the last few weeks so I’m thankful it is cleared up.

I’m waiting on an offer for the job I want in Milwaukee. I got peeps from two VERY WELL INFORMED birds that the job will be offered to me. I am quite happy and excited about this and anticipate the offer. I know it is Passover this week and may not hear anything until next week (especially because this is a mainly jewish organization), but I at least know it is coming. Perhaps there shall be a celebration in my honor? A princess can only hope.

I’ll let you know when I get the actual offer.

My second interview went fantastic. Seemed like everyone in the office was rooting for me. I’ll let you know as soon as I do.
