So, life is still very much in limbo, and I'm on the last day of a grueling three day gauntlet. I'll explain. Sunday was Danielle's birthday party. Hoping against all hopes, I wanted a sunny day so the kids could play outside, and my family wouldn't hole up inside. It wasn't to be. True to form, the day was overcast and chilly ,and the only one spending the day outside was me, attached to the grill. All in all it was a fun day, but a horribly tiring one. My mother took Danielle that night, which leads me to Monday.

Monday Heather and I were up at 4 in the morning to be out the door at five. The reason for this awakening at such an ungodly hour? Heather FINALLY had her interview in Freetown for the possible transfer over. I went so that after the interview was over, we could go apartment hunting in the area. We were on the road on time, and made it to Freetown Mass. by seven thirty. An hour and a half before her interview. Fortunately for me, I had packed my bag 'o' goodies, of which I used none. Shortly after reaching the parking lot, I fell asleep, and didn't wake until near ten. Upon waking, I did take advantage of my bag, I threw on my iPod, and pulled out the PSP for a little Untold Legends. Heather finally emerged at eleven thirty, and rather discouraged looking. She doesn't think she got the job, and said she flubbed the interview. I'm hoping she's just saying that to not get her hopes up. I'm sure there are those of you reading this that are jumping for joy, because that adds another tick in the Jay's staying column...we'll just have to see yet. What I will say is that the more time I spent in Mass, the more I loved it. The people there are si much friendlier there than they are in CT... always willing to help, and wit ha smile on their faces. Not only that, but if you're waiting to get into an intersection, you'll only be waiting a short while. Someone is bound to stop soon and LET YOU IN. Try getting that this close to NYC... it's not going to happen. We checked out a few apartment complexes (yet again I refuse to move into part of a house...I'm done dealing with finicky landlords and their crazy whims, management companies are just so much easier to deal with, and more reliable). The first one we hit I absolutely loved. The kitchen was huge, and the floorplan was perfect. Heather didn't like it at all, thinking it was dark, and there was nowhere near enough natural light coming in. SO, we're still searching. The second joint we tried to locate turned out to be a hole in the wall, and neither Heather nor I would be caught dead there, so we moved on. The third place we couldn't find, and the fourth, which might have been the winner, as it rather closely resembled the neighborhood we live in now, only with cell service, had no one in the management building, so we couldn't get a tour. I'm hoping on our next trip (yeah, you heard that right) we'll have something set up to check this joint out. That is , if we get the job. That brings me to today.

Today is a little more laid back. I have to go back to Best Buy to return a case I bought for my iPod. It doesn't protect so good, as the first time used it, it scratched up the back of the device. Not only that, but the only headphones I can use with the case are the stock earbuds, and that simply won't do. I like to use the thing in my car, attached to one of those tape deck adapters. So, off I go. I'm probably going to pick up King Kong as well. Tonight is going to be the gauntlet portion. Adam is coming home tonight, and I have to pick him up at JFK. There's the fun part. navigating an airport in New York is never fun, just like the drive there...

So, there you go, up to date on my life...and you asked for this...sucker...
