In 1.5 weeks I’m going to move across the country and start a completely new job. I am both freaked out and excited about this.
The economy in Michigan continues to tank, and I’m happy that I found a job after my position was cut to 1/2 time because of failing state budgets. I’m excited that I might get to have a garden again, since the last 2 years I’ve lived in a spot where I couldn’t dig and putter. In my new location, I will live near Weird Bug Lady, and will be on the east coast near of all sorts of skeptical friends!
Except…I also feel a bit like my cat, shown here trying to be just as cute as Maru. (And succeeding, I think.) As excited as I am about starting over, I’d also like to hide in my bedroom with a bunch of books and 20 pints ofTiramisu Gelato, and let the world pass me by.
What are you looking forward to this week? Or, are you hiding in your cave?
