Holy Cow - Has it been that long?

I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post. Time flies when you're busy I suppose... I'm finally relocated and currently sub-letting an apartment until I can find a place of my own. I started work one week ago today and am very happy with my new job. It's a small organization and everyone is very friendly. The workload is just right and keeps me busy all day long.

Muffin and I moved all of our stuff (with the help of Mom and Dad) two weeks ago. I had a few days to try and get her back into public school but that turned out to be too much of a hassle. Apparently, it takes an act of Congress to enroll your child in Fairfax County schools if you do not have a permanent address in the area. Thankfully, there are a few private schools around and they don't really care where you live - just as long as you pay.



So, that's where we're at. Muffin is going to a private daycare (temporarily!!) and I am still trying to find us a home at night and on the weekends.

In fun news - I took Muffin on her first Metro ride last weekend. She LOVED it! Though, I'm sure the fellow metro riders where ready to see the back of us. She chattered and pointed and exclaimed and was generally a lot more animated than the majority of the riders. I was happy to see her so enthused. Sadly, the three hour mall trip didn't hold her enthusiasm for long. Still, she behaved as well as I could expect considering that the Fashion Center at Pentagon City doesn't have a Disney Store. :)



All in all, I really like the area and I really like my new job. The cooler weather and changing leaves makes everything crisp and lovely. I'm very happy that I had the opportunity to relocate up here. Looks like I'll be doing most of my blogging and commenting either at lunch or after work. See you then!

I missed you! D.C. is lots of fun. A friend of mine does hair up that way if you're ever looking for someone. She's great.

Good luck with the house hunting
