Not much has changed around here; my hard-drive is still dead (although on the positive side, I had the Apple Care plan and they replaced the hard drive for free so now I'm busy setting my computer up and downloading the pictures I still have on my camera), our landlord is still making us move so she can live here temporarily, but I am feeling much, much better about life and it's mostly because of you, dear friends, reading this. So many friends, some we know and some we don't, have come forward to offer whatever they can (help, advice, words of support) and I don't think we could possibly feel any more loved, and that would make just about anyone feel pretty happy.
I thought it was cute that even Larry was touched by how many of you have commented. I didn't even know that he was reading the comments and he said he thought it was really cool how many people that we didn't know commented such thoughtful things. It's like we have secret friends all over, which sort of feels magical.
At any rate, we are doing our best to move on. We think we found a temporary apartment that will let us have a month to month lease (we filled out the application today so keep your fingers crossed that everything goes according to plan). It's literally half the size of where we live now so most of our things will go into storage (but I think it will be sort of refreshing to see how little we can live with. We have way too much stuff), and its a little shabby, and when we did a walk through tonight we realized that it does not have central air conditioning, BUT it's clean, it's only two streets away, the manager is really nice, the rent is really affordable, and we can stay there as long as we need to while we figure things out.
And Larry has a job interview that he's really excited about. The problem is that the job is in PITTSBURGH. Ummm, Larry always promised that when he was done with his training, I could choose where we would live, and I definitely did not choose Pittsburgh, BUT it's a huge opportunity for him. If his Salt Lake job hadn't fallen through, we wouldn't have even considered this opportunity so I can't help feeling like maybe this was meant to be. I guess we will just have to wait and see. Did I mention that they just rescheduled this job interview to exactly when we were planning to move? UGH! Well, it will all work out, right?
In the meantime, we're focusing on the positive and seeing lots of sunshine around here. Can you guess who just got a magical new pair of shoes?I wasn't sure I should buy them because I knew they would be a pain to put on and lace up, but Larry said we HAD to get them because they would make Creed so happy. He was right, and Creed wants to wear them all the time.
So I guess it will come as no surprise that this is what he chose as his summer footwear?
He recently asked me if I would buy him all yellow clothes for Christmas.
Oh, I love this boy!
I've also finished some really fun little projects lately that I can't wait to tell you about so stay posted!
