Looks like we're moving back to the NW within less than 2 years of leaving, for the second time! I've gotten a new job, which is great news. It happens to be back in Washington State, and is beyond amusing since we only left a mere 15 months ago! We really weren't planning on leaving DC for a few more years, but this opportunity just came along. We're sad to leave all our new friends, who we had hoped to get to know better. We'll just have to do that from afar!
I'll be working at the state legislative level, so that's exciting for me, since all things political make me happy. Dan and the mutts are going to stay in DC till Dan's done with his semester at MD in May. I'll be able to come back to DC for long weekends and stuff after the session is over mid-March.
And just to add more insanity to our lives, Dan and I just moved to a new house (twice) in the last two weeks. We found what we thought was a great old victorian to rent in Mt. Rainier, MD. After 2 days there, we realized it was a complete disaster, uninhabitable and a total nightmare. We wound up moving again down the street to another great house we had found earlier in November. It's a really nice bungalow, only now I don't get to live in it! But I'm going to unpack it for Danly, so he doesn't have to live among boxes while I'm gone!
Needless to say, this has been quite a ride the past few weeks, but we're looking forward to the next year and adventure.
