I've been VERY busy at work. Lots of things to do, but I like it a lot. We are moving to a different floor in the building - below is my view from my office. Note that I said office - I won't be in a cube - hurrah!
I've been dating a bit. On and off. Mostly off. Mostly guys I'm not interested in - and then there was that guy who as soon as he met me, he kissed me stuck his freakin' tongue down my freakin' throat. EWWWWW!!! No second date with that one. Yuck.
I've been dealing with the Stooges.
Larry has had some very serious health issues that required 2 hospitalizations - and he has no health insurance. I flew down to FL to be with him during the first - and scariest - of the hospital visits. And now he has no job, so we moved him back up to Hotlanta to live with his brothers. He's going to be ok, needs to get a job and concentrate on getting better.
Moe has graduated from high school!
Curly - remember my frustrations with Curly? Cross your fingers, the worst of that seems over! Curly is working selling mobile phones and plans for a big company, does a great job for them, they want him to be store manager soon. He's taking his meds! He's got a girlfriend with personality and ambition! He seems grateful for things I've done for him! He calls me up and tells me he loves me!
All the Stooges are now out of my house. They have moved in with
I've tatted a little tiny bit. Here's something I made for one of the guys I've been going out with.
And I'm teaching again at Tat Days - I'm doing 2 of Nina's gorgeous patterns.
I've had my own share of health issues - no worries, I'm fine! But I had a stay in the hospital too, had cellulitis. I had my laptop with me and worked the entire time, 'cause that's what I do. (And why my company loves me...) And I had this lovely view:
|This is not abstract art - it was a lovely view of the hospital roof|
I'm better. Really I am. I was annoyed to have to be there.
However - one of the biggest things that I've been doing is finding new housing - for me, not the Stooges, just me and the cats. And I've found a place.
A condo just for ME!!!!
In this complex.Yes, this is the view from the 2nd bedroom.
With this view at night from my balcony.
This is the daytime view from a different angle - you can see the Hotlanta skyscrapers.
The condo is in a part of Hotlanta that's its own little city, considered one of the top 10 most walkable urban areas in the country. More than 40 restaurants within walking distance. Seven miles to my office. A block to the subway. It's safe. It's artsy. It's hip. It's not in the cultural desert that I've been living in. And no real maintenance. I'll close on it very soon - and I'll have it totally paid off by the time I retire. Woo-hoo!!!!
Oh - and I'm heading to London Monday on business - I have to hire a new staff member in that office. Across the pond I go!
And that Saturday - I'll see Jane!!
