the happenings!

ok ok ok.  so many things!

we found an apartment!  i hadn’t really updated here much about the hunt, but man, it’s stressful.  looking at craigslist twenty times a day, finding time in both of our schedules to see the few that stand out as possibilities, and then the disappointment when one gets rented before you could even get there to see it.  somehow, though, the stars aligned and a really amazing place fell into our laps.  here’s how it happened: a few weeks ago i saw an ad on craigslist for an open house in cole valley, but it didn’t specify the pet policy.  i emailed the poster to find out, and she emailed me back saying that the open house was cancelled because they already leased it.  bummer, but oh well.  so we continued our search.  on friday, i got an email from her again saying that the original tenant backed out and asking if i wanted to see it the next day.  i didn’t remember a thing about the ad, but i figured what the hell, and sent john to see it because i had to work.  i was anxious to hear how it went, but the girl never showed up to let him in.  he couldn’t get in touch with her, so again we decide to move on.  turns out she was in the process of moving out of the unit, had left her phone in it and got stuck in the north bay with no way to contact us.  ok ok ok.  so do we want to see it sunday?  yes, why not.  we were already seeing another place close by.  that place was okay but not amazing, but we still put in an application.  then we rushed back over to the cole valley place, and proceeded to jump up and down because it was so awesome.  cheaper than what we pay now, AMAZING neighborhood, WAY more space…just awesome.  plus a parking space that we can lease out if we want since we don’t have a car.  YAY!  the owner is on vacation so we haven’t yet signed a lease, but he approved our application and we’ve given our deposit to the on-site manager (whose nieces, by the way, wrote the song “going to the chapel”…seriously!).  we get keys tomorrow (hopefully), and if we get real ambitious we might paint on saturday.  YAAAAYYY!

elbow news: all of my blood work is normal; no auto-immune business.  naproxen is helping a bit, so i’m going to stay on it for another two weeks and then stop.  if it’s gone, fantastic, if it’s still there or comes back when i stop, then he’ll do the cortisone shot and maybe an mri.  he actually had me on the table to do the cortisone shot today, but after he started examining it he thinks the naproxen is helping enough that we should see if that keeps making it better.

life news: i have decided: stay at anthro, no school.  i just can’t come up with a good reason why i should be going into this program right now.  eventually we’ll be back in texas, and if it sounds like something i still want to do, i’ll do it there.  anthro is promoting me and i’ll keep getting full-time hours, so i’m just going to keep doing what i’m doing for now.

that’s it!  lunch time, then i’m off to work.
