Two Weeks Together

Well, we’re here! We’ve made it through two weeks of living together, and are both enjoying Arizona so far. Our apartment is about a mile away from “downtown” Gilbert which is FULL of delicious restaurants. We’ve hit up a few so far and already have some favorites (Zinburger, I’m looking at you).

This weekend we’re both going away - I’m going to Ohio with my dad to visit my grandma and C is heading back to EP for the weekend. Unfortunately when we both get back, he turns around and leaves again on Monday for a business trip. It will be my first night in AZ myself.

I’ve been working remotely from our new apartment for the same company I’ve been at for almost 4 years now. I was lucky enough for them to allow me to stay on full time after I moved. C started his new job and is catching up on what he needs to know to master his new gig.

Because I’m working from home, I obviously don’t get out much. As a very social person, this is taking some getting used to - that and the stir-crazy feeling. I try to make a point to go outside the apartment a few times a day (to get the mail earlier, then for a walk around the apartment complex around lunch), but I’m still trying to figure out how to meet new people.

I got some babysitting jobs already lined up out here, the first one was last night. Two little boys as cute as could be! I’m excited for the opportunity to spend more time with kids again, and the chance to get out and interact with real live people who aren’t my fiance, our apartment building managers or the mail lady - not that there's anything wrong with any of those people.
