Brendan got a job!
It's in Milwaukee!
It starts in three weeks!
So...we have lots to do! But all things I want to do, because it means moving back home. I am SO relieved to have things figured out, and even more relieved that we're going back to Milwaukee. It's funny because at one time in my life, being in one place for too long made me itch to move, go somewhere new, see new things. Now I'm all about staying in one place for a long time. I like that I know Milwaukee, I know neighborhoods, good places to eat, parks to go to, people to see. Yes, finding new things is fun, too, but I'm an old fogey now that just wants to know where she's going, how to get around a place, and I like having a million people I can call if I'm bored.
Also, thrifting is so much better in Milwaukee! I know that seems silly, but considering I buy a large portion of clothes and house stuff at thrift stores, it's a real bonus that I can go to seven different really good thrift stores as opposed to the one here.
We found a house for rent in a great neighborhood, a friend is checking it out for us today. Hopefully it will be good and not a dump, it would be really nice to have a place lined up for us. And a whole house! With restaurants and bars and things in walking distance! Brendan and I have been just giddy talking about all the things we're excited for. Yay us! It's finally coming together.
