Home again, Home again, jiggety jig

Vacation is over. Cue the sad trombones.

Sorry I didn’t get to post much–the wifi at the main house was always being used by everyone else and even when it wasn’t, I barely had time to download the day’s emails before getting kicked off. Cell signal was nonexistent much of the time, as well. But that’s okay, because I wasn’t there to internet, I was there to swim and sun and read and eat and beer and sleep.

I went skating on Monday morning on the bike path, did 1.6 miles, which is not as much as I wanted to do. However, my shins and arches were not interested (I stretched and tried athletic tape to help, but I must not have done it right, because it didn’t) and I fell 3 or 4 times due to sand-deposits on the path, and I didn’t end up skating again last week.

I ate way too much dessert and chocolate every day. But my lunches and dinners were generally much healthier than I usually get to eat, and I discovered some foods I didn’t know I liked, or didn’t know I liked when prepared that way, or whatever. And my sister-in-law gave me tips on shopping for avocados, which is good, because I always end up buying ones that have already started to go brown.

I’ll probably talk about the books I read in one post, and my mini-meltdown in another, and there will likely be pictures as well. But today, you get some news, and then I get back to work:
This actually officially happened before vacation, but it only became official at the last minute so if you aren’t on facebook, you’re only hearing about it now:
My part time job has hired me on full time as an archival assistant, to help clear up backlog. This is a temporary thing, lasting through to the end of the year, but it is full time, I am not an intern anymore, and I get benefits. Money will still be tight, but not anywhere near as bad as it had been, and hopefully this will open the door to further opportunities. As soon as I can without preventing payment on other, bill-type things, I will be getting these as a little treat for myself (and also because I need ’em! Arch support and heel cupping FTW!) but otherwise, my pennies will still need to be pinched as much as possible.

But I’m still pretty psyched.

    Avocados are sort of magical, btw. If you stick them in the fridge, they’ll stay good for a very long time. Are they turning brown on the inside or the outside?

    • argh, take three! (david’s laptop’s touchpad is too sensitive for it’s own good!) thanks for the tip, Wendil! The ones I had been getting were brown in spots on the inside only, straight from the store (I was looking for ones with a little give, if I recall correctly) but my SIL suggested I buy them still hard and then let them ripen at home. I bought some on friday that way, so I’ll stick ’em in the fridge until I can maneuver well enough to deal with them (or have someone else stick ’em in the fridge, anyway)
