Porlandiversary [Jul. 19th, 2015|07:23 am]
Verminius Rex
It's been over a year since we moved to Portland (a year and 8 days, I think). Still trying to replace the network of friends that took over 20 years to accumulate in Lawrence, but I've been employed for over 6 weeks at a job with some pretty cool people at a payrate that makes a huge difference in our lives (I can cover food and gas, which frees up a good chunk of the household budget to pay down debt related to household renovations). I can see staying at this company long term, it's mostly customer service with some shipping/receiving tossed in. I'm also checking out the local nonprofit run haunted house to see if that will become my zombie walk replacement, since the local walk doesn't seem like much more than a poorly planned flash mob.

We just had the roof redone, next project is to scrape and paint the outside of the house, then start tearing down the hottub hut and deck that is taking up way too much of the back yard. This will keep me busy for the greater part of the summer.

Congratulations on settling into a job you enjoy.
Hey, Lawrence Zombie Walk wasn't much until you took hold of it!
