Two months

M and I have been here in Los Angeles for going on two months now. I’m still glad that we made the move. The job search has gone slower than I had expected but then when you make more than minimum and George Bush has fuckered up the economy as badly as he has everything else his golden hands of death have touched, its to be expected. I’m fairly certain that I found a job that should start sometime next week. I’m hopeful that I will get the definite yes today. The company has already vetted me as it were except for the Social Security and Federal crimes check which is apparently standard procedure in this day and age. I’m happy that I’ll be working again. The shift eventually will be 4pm to 1am Sunday through Thursday which suits me just fine. I’ll get to work on projects and take support calls which I like doing and the pay is the same I was making in Seattle so hurrah for me. One of the things that has come out of this moving process is that I really do need to finish cleaning up the mistakes I made when I was in my twenties and highly irresponsible. I also need be putting away as much money as I can afford to while I am working. I love it here however I came here with a specific set of goals. Once those goals are accomplished who knows. So all in all things are good. Mike is having a bit of a hard time finding full-time work but he will eventually. In the interim he is working almost full-tme on the weekends taking care of an older gentleman in Glendale. If Seattle were sunnier well ….. Seattle wouldn’t be Seattle then.
