Tick Tock

The gears are definitely turning in the weird Rube Goldberg machine that is our life. Lizzie is off to Milwaukee again this afternoon for an very promising job interview. I have a feeling that she'll get one of the two jobs that she is interviewing for... If so, that will pretty much cement May 1st as my last day in Boston.

Thanks to the guidance of The Dad-in-Law, we found out today that we're going to be able to afford a home in Milwaukee with payments much cheaper than our rent here. Room enough for Liz and I, the cats, and eventually our future offspring... It's still somewhat heartbreaking to me that the same amount of money wouldn't buy a 1 bedroom apartment in a crack house in Boston. But that's why we're leaving... following so many other people we know who finally cracked under the financial strain of the most expensive city in the Americas.

Is it weird that I already miss Lizzie? She's only going to be gone a couple of days, and she hasn't even left yet! I just don't look forward to going home tonight and not having her there. When I was single, I never minded being alone and having time to myself. Now,I've apparently developed a serious Lizzie addiction! Not that that's a habit that I EVER intend to kick... :)

Not Much

Not much new to report... I've spent most of the week with a nasty flue-like virus thing thats been going around. I've been sending out resumes but not hearing much back yet. We're still waiting to hear about the results of Liz's most recent interview in Milwaukee.

I'm feeling a bit better today. This afternoon, I made myself get out of the house and take a walk around the neighborhood. It's a nice sunny day in Boston, and my back has been killing me from spending too much time either in bed or on the couch. The walk seems to have loosened up my back a little. I'm sure the fresh air helped too.

While I've been knocked out for the last few days, Liz took good care of me. She got me broth and crackers to keep me nourished and ginger to make tea to calm down my belly. The cats helped out too. I think they're empathic. They seem to know when I need comforting and they took turns curling up with me and keeping me company. They are very affectionate little fuzzballs. Even Uma, who is still in kitten mode and doesn't alway go for the cuddling and lap sitting, has been very attentive and snuggly. We have good cats.

Look at the Monkeys!

I'm not usually publicly schmoopy about our cats... but dang, ain't they cute? Uma (left) and Kali (right) cuddled up on the couch with arms draped over each other... Awwwww!

Heckboy

I haven't been felling very "bloggy" lately... not sure why. I think maybe because I'm waiting for the big news. Things seem to revolve around waiting lately, and it makes everyday goings-on seem less than noteworthy. That's not really a good way to experience life, so I'll try to shake the mindset.

Liz and I went to see a free sneak preview of "Hell Boy" tonight. We both thought it was fun. Lots of action, cool effects, and a story that did a good job of explaining the characters while keeping the momentum going. I have to admit that while I'm a little bit of a comic geek, I've never really read Mike Mignola's HellBoy" books. I don't know how the fanboys will react... probably like fanboys usually do. "Hey! That's out of continuity! In issue 17, Abe Sapian said he prefered macadamia nuts to rotten eggs..." Oye.
