"And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time."
-Libba Bray, The Sweet Far Thing
My husband Joey received a promotion at work and he starts today. We met through our first job at K-Mart nine years ago this summer. Over the years, we have worked together at four different places, and that includes where I currently work. For the past two years, we worked on the same floor and had breaks together almost every day. This is a big change, but it is a good change for both of us. He will be using his talents in a supportive workplace, and I can read and write on my breaks.
We had a Zombie Movie Night on Saturday with the Core Con gang to help us get in the fun mode for the upcoming convention in three weeks. Everything is running smoothly and it is definitely going to be better than last year... and last year was awesome! We have all been working really hard and it was nice to just to visit and relax with some good (vegetarian!!!) food. We set up our projector and screen up in the our friends' living room and watched Army of Darkness (classic!) and Hell's Ground (recommended by Rotten Tomatos and io9!).
We had our first real spring day yesterday. We opened up our bedroom balcony and hung up pictures and shelves. Joey built a shelf over our bed for the projector, which turned out really nice. We need to get our house set up before our friend Sue Dawe (artist guest for Core Con) comes to visit. Good motivation, it is! We also took a lovely walk through the neighborhood, which I have come to absolutely adore. I cannot wait until the Red River of the North goes down so take a ride or walk on the bike path.
Overall at this moment, change seems pretty good.
