and i've been going through some hard things while i'm here without work. things that have nothing to do with jobs or a job, and then things that have everything to do with needing to make a living.
but some really cool things have happened, too. i've grown closer to friends because i have more time to invest in relationships. i've gotten to know my niece better. i've been able to work out 8 days in a row. i'm back to running over 20 miles a week. and...drumroll...i am going to be moving into a house. in my favorite neighborhood in the city. it's a perfect house. perfect. with characater and a screened-in portch. and a big patio and a fenced yard for kolby. and wood floors and crystal doorknobs and space to expand and a kitchen with professional-grad appliances in stainless steel.
yes, that's happening.
so it hasn't been all bad.
