more jibberjabber

51 days, and yes, I am counting. We're hoping to have some kind of answer this week about when we're actually allowed to leave. John should be picking up his orders allowing him to ship the truck and we will hopefully get it out of our hands this week. If we should allow 55 days for shipment, that would mean we'd only need to rent a car for a week. That's livable.

I applied for a bunch more jobs at UW today. I don't know if it's fate or what, but they even had an admin job open at the Tacoma campus. It isn't listed on the Tacoma webpage but I'm still tempted to email the HR person there my information...just in case.

Work is well, work. Today is the dreaded payroll day, so I have lots of making computer files and converting things to Adobe format and digitally signing everything under the sun. Major pain in the ass, but at least it is done. Spoke with my boss about my raise again. He said he would be talking to his boss about it tomorrow morning. I was actually surprised at the amount that he's going to go for. It was a little more than I would have even been happy with. Let's all keep our fingers crossed that I get it, OK?

I've got a few more things to do before the end of the day. Time to sort a bunch of paperwork, check and stamp it and copy and file it. Then I've got to change clothes and go to the gym. It is going to be weird not teaching tonight but in a way, I'm kind of glad. I was getting pretty burned out, burning the candle at both ends like that. The extra time in the evenings will hopefully be spent starting to sort out the household goods for shipment. If April goes anywhere near as fast as March seems to be going, I'll be out of here in no time!
