Life Updates

I suppose I should update. Neither of us has had a tremendous amount of time for blogging lately, so apologies that we've been quiet!

We're moving to Boston. Well, roho is already in Boston, and is moving into our new digs today, I will be following, if all goes as planned, around the end of the month. He has a new job with a new company in a completely different industry, and we're very excited.

Today, a some very wonderful local friends are descending on our Illinois place and making furniture and other things disappear, and I cannot express my gratitude enough. You guys are wonderful!

I never realized how much it would suck having to stay by myself for a month, pack up a house and get it ready to sell. I really hope we never have to do this again.

In other news, while cleaning out the china hutch so it can go to its new home, I found a full bottle of cacacha. Caprinhas, here I come! :9

I really really hope so! I could use some smooth sailing. And thank you! :)

I didn't know you were friends with thieves who are going to arrange to steal your stuff! };)

Seriously, hope the move goes well!

Ha! feren said he felt like he was looting a corpse. :D

And I could really use it going well. :)

I saw Roho's comment about being unemployed at the new year. I'm glad to see it was just a transition.

Good luck in your new life situation out east.
Jan. 15th, 2011 04:40 pm (UTC)
Ack, that was me.
Jan. 16th, 2011 02:52 pm (UTC)
That's okay! And yeah. We were laughing about his 'unemployment' of 10 days. :)
Jan. 15th, 2011 04:57 pm (UTC)
Good luck with the move. And one of these days, doomsey and I are going to have to come visit you in Boston.
Jan. 16th, 2011 02:52 pm (UTC)
We'll have a guest room, and you guys are always welcome. :)
Jan. 15th, 2011 05:24 pm (UTC)
Good luck to you and Roho in Boston.

Whoa! That's a big move! Congrats to Roho for his new gig, hopefully it's one that doesn't run him so ragged!
Jan. 16th, 2011 02:53 pm (UTC)
I'm hoping that too. I could really go for having a husband in the evenings. :)

::clinks a glass to yours:: Hope things go better soon.

Wow, I can't imagine how much having to do all the house stuff alone would suck. D:

Here's hoping it goes well.

I couldn't have done it without Brendan's remote support and our local friends here.

I made a caipirinha and it sucked. Trying a different recipe tonight.

But thank you! Yes, two random guys showed up and relieved us of some furniture we didn't want too, which was mega awesome. :D
Jan. 15th, 2011 10:00 pm (UTC)
ooh, how exciting! A new home in a new city. Best of luck to you both!
Jan. 16th, 2011 03:17 pm (UTC)
It is! I am looking forward to the stressy-part ending and the fun part (exploring) beginning!
Jan. 16th, 2011 01:13 pm (UTC)
Glad to hear about good things. Good luck for a smooth move!

If you find yourself near Binghamton, or if you're passing through Syracuse with a bit of time to kill, feel free to look us up.

funny you should say that, I'm thinking of trying to hit Binghamton in the first day.

Unfortunately... I probably won't be able to stop. I'll have 2 pissed off cats and an elderly dog in the car, and will likely want to commit homicide by the time I stop. :(

Binghamton from Chicago is a big stretch when moving... The two trips I made from Rockford when I moved in '03, I couldn't get past Cleveland without stopping for the night. From here, Boston is a scant 5 hours away.

Were you planning to take I-90 to I-86 and then cut up I-88 to get to Albany and re-join I-90 at the Mass Pike extension?
Jan. 17th, 2011 08:28 pm (UTC)
I'm honestly not sure yet. I'll look at the route when I get closer in to the drive dates; I want to keep an eye on the weather.

I may end up having to make it a 3 day drive, I'm not sure. -.-

Unless there's heavy lake effect snow in the Buffalo-Rochester-Syracuse area, I'd say you're better off following the Thruway (I-90) straight through and avoiding the Binghamton route.

Last I checked, New York state has closed most of its rest areas not on the Thruway so there are long, long stretches with no services on I-86/I-88. (The Thruway has regularly-spaced service facilities akin to those on the Indiana Toll Road.)
