Whoo, the last few months have been a blur. I haven't been writing much, but that doesn't mean nothing has been going on....
1. New Job. Yes, indeedy, I started a new gig, at a new museum, in a new field. (Well, not entirely new, but a new title). It's very exciting! I am digging the job, though it has been BUSY. No, no, no.... BUSY. NO, SERIOUSLY. I AM BUSY. All of the times. Every single one of the times is a time when I am busy. But I do like the work, so that's pretty cool.
2. Mr. P went on an Arizona Art Adventure. The sailing was about as smooth as it could be if one were to attempt to sail in the desert. He was gone for a long, long time. He made beautiful work, but he was gone for a long, long time. During which time I moved to a...
3. New City. Cleveland! Yes, I know. It rocks. That is what everyone tells me. Here is the list of things I have seen in Cleveland: 1. My apartment. 2) My gym. 3) The shoreway (it is a road, along the shore of the lake). 4) The museum where I work. (reachable by the shoreway) 5) The grocery store and adjacent Target. That is all, I am told there is a rock and roll hall of fame here. I'm also told that a two minute walk will get me to the Museum of Natural History. I know nothing of these things. See number 1.
4. I am in an apartment for the first time since 2005. It is conveniently located close to the shoreway. Everything else about it is not so convenient. I am on the fourth floor. I have no air conditioning. Heat rises. Sadly, the elevator only rises occasionally. In the first month I was here, the elevator was broken for sixteen of the thirty-one days of that month. I am now in week seven of my stay here. The elevator is broken again. I came home yesterday to find that someone had parked in my parking space, for which I pay extra. Today they were gone, but I was told that the property manager "misplaced" my parking lease and gave my parking spot to someone else (hence the car in my spot), but that had all been sorted out. This is the second time this has happened since I have been here. I remind you that I haven't even been here two months. This has become OLD. I am very happy that this is temporary.Mr. P is still in RVA with Mr. Thibbs. I miss them both terribly, and can't wait for them to be here.... not in this apartment.
I did get to go to Maine for a bit, which was awesome. I got to see Mr. P, I got to see my family, I got to see Maine. There was kayaking most days. It was not hot. There were many onion rings. I had to work most days, but at least I was looking out at the loons on the bay while it was going on.
So. The Land of Cleves. Now back to work.
