These pages are full of what makes Penny Penny. Lots of crafts, rants, and fan girling.

Worse than the first day of school

Mike has an interview today. A very important one in the 'querque. Yesterday evening was spent cutting hair and altering pants. New pants, since we purchased him a whole new outfit (shirt, pants, belt, tie) at Foley's. We even bought shoe polish so his shoes would be nice and shiny.

Yesterday day, one of my fibery friends (not a sheep, a guildmember) offered a couch and kitchen table to us, for use in our new apartment. I filled out all the apartment paperwork, and after the interview (assuming he gets hired, of course, but he's a shoe in) we will be dropping off the apartment paperwork and putting an earnest deposit on the apartment.

Let's add Christmas morning to first day of school. It more accurately conveys how excited I am. Especially since the UPS man just showed up and dropped off some stuff we ordered. From top left...Dark Empire I & II (Trade Paperbacks, kinda like comic books, but filling in some of the Star Wars story we've been missing.) Bottom left is the CD Once More, with Feeling, from the musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and then the soundtrack to Angel (the Buffy spin off).


I will heed the wise words of Inigo Montoya, "Let me 'splain. No, is too long. Let me sum up."
1) We have the money to move.
2) We have furniture for the new apartment.
3) Mike has an interview.

I think we're moving to Albuquerque. All week, I've had the worst nervous stomach about all of this...what if what if....but I think this is it. I don't think there are any more what ifs.I think there is another 20 minutes until I can wake up Mike to get him going. I am so obnoxiously excited. This is why I am going to the mall while Mike is interviewing, so that I can sit in a chair and get a manicure and pedicure, and not be knocking on windows or making phone calls while Mike is interviewing. The mani/pedi thing is also quite cool, since I am a mani/pedi virgin. See? Things are finally working! Everyone else got their raises and promotions and new houses (sometimes all three at once, wink wink, Miss Mocha) and now it's our turn. Yay!
