It's July!

Holy crap! Where did June go?

Well, I guess in many ways it went just like any other month, except that I spent most of it at A NEW JOB! Hooray!!!!

It couldn't have come at a better time. My distaste for my old job had just gotten to a point where I couldn't take it anymore. I was angry all the time, and being snarky about stuff, and honestly, that is just not me. Okay, the being snarky part is, but only once in a while.

I am now the Senior Policy and Planning Analyst for the Mass. Board of Higher Education. I've been on the job about a month, and I'm ear-deep in fiscal policy as it relates to public higher education in the Commonwealth. Infinitely more interesting and engaging, and I am so much happier. SO much.

In life news, in a couple days The Big E and I will celebrate our 2 month anniversary. For our 1 month anniversary, he bought me a chili dog. Perhaps this time we will upgrade to a hamburger.

Married life is good. Great, in fact. We've always had an extremely functional relationship, in that we don't fight, we're good friends, and we seem to understand each other (except for the whole loving baseball thing. I don't get that!). I didn't really know whether being married would change all that much about us, and in a lot of ways, it hasn't. But there is something that is stronger, happier and more special now. I like it.

We're also saving $200 a month by moving E onto my state insurance. So the economics of marriage are working out well, too! Yea!

On the docket for this month: A TRIP HOME! I am so excited--haven't been home since Christmas, and I do miss the old Rosco. I believe we're going to have a little party, introduce Eric properly to our little village and its citizens.

Happy 4th of July to all! We're having a get-together with the Boston crew and one member's 'rents--having a cookout/in with our new indoor grill (thanks to Abby and John) and heading out to the Esplanade with all crazies for the fireworks. I'm not a patriot, but there is something about the 4th in Beantown that makes me all verklempt.

Big hugs!
