Thank you to all of you that sent me Happy Birthday eCards or notes. It was really nice of you. There are a few things I’d like to see happen this year. First and foremost I’m looking for a new job, I’d like to find one within the city but county or state are perfectly fine with me. My current job has run out of challenges and frankly isn’t a very enjoyable place to be. Also, Mike and I got notice that they are raising our rent at the end of this month which is when the lease is up. We’ve decided not to stay. I went looking for another place and I think we may have found one. We definitely know the area we are moving to. It’s further up Pike towards the top of Capitol Hill. I even found this amazing little chalet-like apt/house for rent. Its a 2 bed 2 bath and although its a bit more than what we are paying now its totally worth it both in terms of location and view. The view from the living room window is a straight panorama of Elliott bay and the Space needle. How cool is that. There is an upstairs where I’m assuming the bedrooms are. There is parking in the back and its within a five minute walk to both a natural foods store and a Safeway grocery store. This neighborhood seems a lot nicer. there are significantly less homeless and its just quieter which is what I think we both want. Anyway, so new job new home no more car loan and who knows maybe a new guy in my life? I’m not sure I want the latter I’m quite content with just me but if it happens it happens. I hope all of you have equally wonderful goals and aspirations in the coming year.
