Making progress

No real update on the books this week. I'm still reading A Confederacy of Dunces and Unweaving the Rainbow. I've actually gotten a lot read of Dunces, because it's been too hot to stay in the apartment, so I've spent an enormous amount of time this week sitting in coffeehouses. Which is good, because it was supposed to go back to the library tomorrow. Depending on how today goes, though, I'll probably have to renew it. But it's almost done, so we'll see.

It was a long week, though. I did that thing I was dreading in the last post, and it went much better than I expected. I gave notice at work this week that the Boy-Creature and I are moving in October, to New Orleans. It's been a long time coming, and I couldn't be more excited. I've been counting down the weeks until I leave work.

Even though we decided this some time ago, it didn't really feel real until this week. Now that I've told my manager, and we're making plans for recruiting and training for someone to take my place, everything feels like it's finally moving forward. It helps that we also got the news this week that we have somewhere to stay when we get down there, until we find jobs and get our own place. And I just can't wait to get down there.

Well, then it's quite fitting you're reading Confederacy of Dunces!
