|The Ballad of Battle Ground
||[Jun. 1st, 2008|10:46 pm]
Approaching the tail-end of a luxurious weekend dogsitting in Battle Ground. I saunified myself (twice!), went on a couple of beautiful country runs, and was joined by Woot & his for a fantastic Korean BBQ feast under the pines this evening. I also got all caught up with LOST. Kind of don't ever want to leave but I've a job to get to in the morn.|
Speaking of, the update on that is: I love it. In a way I kind of wasn't expecting. It is so nice to be surrounded by folks whose creativity and execution truly blow me away. That hasn't been the case in a long time. Furthermore, I've found that often times I'll catch myself thinking, "This doesn't feel like work" and then I realize that not many others can do what I am doing. It makes me feel worthful. And for the first time in a long while I see the potential in things, both on the work side and on the personal side. Stuff is still kind of crazy on the personal side but it is nice to have ten hours a day in which to think about something else.
I've been apartment hunting for my mom who decided she wants to move to Portland. Unfortunately, she now has pneumonia so we'll see how that one plays out. One thing after another, I tell you. But yeah, upswing. Fingers crossed that this momentum sticks. Summer hasn't even landed yet and I am already dreading the Winter. Do any of you other pdxers get that? So weird!
