no longer homeless in january...

we found an apartment. we signed a 6 month lease at the River Birch Apartments in Columbia. i think it will be awesome for us. it is an all inclusive type of place... cable, internet, electricity, etc! we are really excited to have a dependable amount to pay every month.

we will have a 2 bedroom 2 bath townhouse...

kitchen with lots 'o cabinet space!

upstairs bath - check out the double sinks! and it has a jetted tub.

our little backyard (that they will take care of...)

in other news related to our move... i had my nursing school interview last week. i think it went really well. it lasted a total of 11 minutes and all of the questions were ones i had anticipated. i will hear about their decision the week of january 12th. no news on jobs so far. i've applied for several research positions at the university, but this darn hiring freeze is really getting in my way. if i don't get a job my nursing school decision will be made much easier.

what else??? want our itinerary??

The place is super cute -- and I'm so excited to see you in San Diego - I can't believe you guys are leaving Oregon! (I know we already did, but Missouri is really far away!) :(

How about a little side trip to State College, PA? It might be a little out of the way but we would love to have you.
