The Waiting.

on August 18, 2010

Isn’t that a movie about Shenanigan’s? That movie was great, minus Justin Long whining about college the whole time.

Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted and so much has happened!!

Aside from three GLORIOUS days at the beach, two weeks ago (the day after Matt finally talked me into re-starting our gym membership) his studio was closed down. 18 guys out of work with a day and a half notice. I don’t know if it was because of exercise I had just gotten and the extra oxygen in my blood, but I didn’t have the hardcore freak out that I should have considering our year lease, new gym membership, and that fun-time credit card statement.

Luckily, Lolapps in SF had contacted Matt a week earlier regarding a resume he had sent back in May. He had declined, because he had a job (or so he thought) — fortunately they were still hiring when he called. Things moved extremely fast. Interview was the next day, then a test (which Matt just blew out of the water despite babies running amok and beach day temptations.) We celebrated on Thursday by checking out La Piedra beach (my new favorite) and then got the call for an in person interview.

After some of the best tacos of my life, we headed up to SF on Sunday. Got to stay at an awesome hotel downtown with free internet (bonus!) The kids were pretty much a nightmare due to the lack of sleep we got, but despite everything, Matt rocked the interview and Tuesday he got an offer for employment!

Now we are waiting because the Hangout guys are trying to get something started up here. SF would be great but it would suck to leave mainly because we have 10 months remaining on a 12 month lease. Also, I know everyone talks crap about LA (and it IS a bitch to drive through) but I love the sunny warm weather and the beaches… the BEACHES!!! Also, I don’t know where we are going to find a 1400 sf apartment with hardwood, washer, dryer, dishwasher, covered parking, that allows pets for the price we pay (sigh).

But it’s SF. Oh, the waiting!!!!!!

      Although he suggested that he could sleep out of his car and shower at the Y, we’d just have to break our lease here and then bust a move to SF and find an apartment pdq. But we just got some news that we may not be moving so soon. I’m keeping my fingers crossed! I’m done with moving for this year – LOL!!
