I've been really bad about updating the blog lately, and I'm sure that once I'm all settled into my new apartment, I'll be more regular about it again, but never fear...I have not fallen of the face of the earth. I know you were all concerned.
I've been pretty busy at work, but even busier at life. Last weekend, I moved out of the Intern House (minus two bags of Goodwill donations and my vacuum which I will be dealing with on Saturday morning before I leave for LA), which was exhausting. Very Exhausting. Moving is not very fun. The packing, the carrying up and down the stairs, the loading in the car, the multiple trips, the storing, the thinking about moving it all again in a month...it's all quite tiresome. But...good. I am signing the lease on my new place this evening, and am meeting a potential painter for an estimate (if she can do it for $200 or under, she's hired!), and will be taking some measurements. I'm excited just to see the place again, knowing it's mine and that I'm actually moving there! I changed my address (the landlord gave me the ok), set up for the post office to hold my mail while I'm out of town...things are definitely in motion.
As of Tuesday, I'll be on my way to Israel, ready to soak up The Homeland and all that jazz. I'm not looking forward to the 18 hour flight, but this is one of those Once In A Lifetime Opportunities that you just can't pass up. I'm going home for a few days before the trip to regroup (the trunk of my car is still full of suitcases/random stuff/clothes on hangers that are probably getting wrinkled despite my best efforts), help out at Sara's CD release concert at the Hotel Cafe (you can buy the CD here or on iTunes), go see NWC at the Ivar, visit with the fam, and just generally chill out. Ah, the pool, it is calling me.
This is going to be a short post today, because I'm off to the gym (at work), but I hope to be back on and updating (with pictures?) soon. Things are finally starting to fall into place.
