Whew!

Whew. That's pretty much sums up the past 3 weeks.

Who knew that moving was such a big deal? I drove about 2,300 miles, moved into a house, unpacked, painted, moved stuff around, got a job, joined the gym, bought furniture, read, and . . . lots of other stuff too. My biggest project has been re-organizing and painting my new craft room. The hideous, hideous green paint that was in there took FOUR coats to completely disappear. Ugh.

I also got a job, quite suddenly and with perfect timing. I was all set to become Ranger Sarah once more, when I found a position as a graphic artist at the local paper. It's very exciting to have the word "artist" in my job title - I've been dabbling in graphic design for years, and I'm lovin' it so far.

Knitting pictures are coming - not much excitement in that area. When its 100 degrees outside, the only thing I want in my hand is a glass of iced tea.

My latest website obsession has been "This Day in Type." I submitted an image for July 10th - vote for me! (Click on Calendar - then July 10th - then click the image - ratings are at the bottom.)

Congrats on the new job!! I am still looking and I have to move this week... yuck. Thankfully I don't have to drive as far but there is almost no room in the new apartment with all my boyfriend's stuff. I have to convince him to reorganize....

Glad to hear you made it safe and sound!And also glad you found a job so quickly, and one you like. We're thinking of moving and are seeing a house tomorrow night in N. Wilmington. I can't even imagine what it's going to be like moving from a house to a house.
