I'm alive (moving update)
I really and truly need to start updating more - if only to get things out of my head.l I feel like I should have been chronicling this journey as I was going along it as there's been so many ups and downs.

First off, if you're one of the three people who still reads this, I'm moving. To New Jersey. In a week and a half. Yes, to Jersey. No, I didn't choose Jersey, I got promoted at work to the Dun & Bradstreet account and this requires me moving out there. Yes, it's a good job - it would have to be in order to get me to move out there.

I think that answers most of the questions people have asked. I'll be working in Berkeley Heights, NJ and living about 15 minutes east of there. My house here in Illinois is sold (I had three offers in 10 days), and I'm closing on Monday the 18th; this means that I'll most likely be signing all of the paperwork in advance and starting the trek cross country on Saturday the 16th, stopping just across the border in PA to split the trip up, and finishing up on Sunday in Schnecksville!

Yes, that's right, I'll be imposing for about a week with the Boy Genius, and then from there I'm closing on my house that Friday, MAYBE moving my furniture and boxes in and getting the cable/phone/internet hooked up, then it's off to Malvern, PA for bashing and boating. I'm upset that I'm going to miss the blogger AC trip, but oh well, there's not much I can do, with needing to be back in NJ for the house closing.

There is SO much to be done, at work, at home and in New Jersey. I've got a list a couple pages long and it's slightly overwhelming.

The good news is I had three of my girlfriends come over tonight to hang out for a little, and entertain my dog, and also help get my old-not-coming-with-me-to-NJ furniture down into the garage to go to a Katrina-based charity.

And on that note, I'm going to go to bed. I'll try and keep this updated somewhat more often, but maybe not in public posts, so keep yourself logged in :)

Well, some parts of NJ aren't too bad for living, but given that you've seen the area you'd know better than I would about that now. :)

Plus, Atlantic City, blah blah blah, things you've already thought about by now I'm sure. :)

Hope the move goes well!

Yeah, it's N. New Jersey - very pretty and hilly and faux rural, whee. And close to NYC which will be nice!
