It's been ages. I've been reading sporadically since I last posted but life got away from me a bit. The short version:
-The person just above me in seniority in the department quit in March. After learning lots of new things and several months of limbo, I got a promotion and a raise and the ability to work remotely full time. That last one is necessary because..
- We moved to Colorado. J1 & I officially left CA on April 2.
- For the summer we guest room hopped and traveled a lot for both work and family (and at least once for a long weekend just for ourselves). This was fun, but also exhausting in that 'no, I really am an introvert' way.
- But we now have an apartment of our very own and are all the way unpacked and everything.
Why return now? Idol, and Gary, of course. I'm in for season ten.
And because as an introvert who now works remotely and is in a new state I need to keep my social skills up somehow.
And because 'post on LJ' has been on my to-do list for over a month. Yippee crossing things off.
But also, Idol, and all of the beautiful craziness to come.
