And....we're moving!!!!

Alan and I have been looking for a new place to live for a very long time. One place we actually put in an application, but she went with the couple that saw the place 10 minutes before us. Now it's official. Saturday we went to look at a lovely 2 bedroom split level house in Allentown (south of downtown Seattle), and fell in love with it. We asked her to move in hours later. Then hustled up to Capital Hill that night to give her money.

We are SOOOO excited!! Our current place is too small, and nothing gets fixed. Building Vep for 4 weeks in the living room solidified why I need a workspace...so we started looking again!

We have 2 bedrooms, one is light blue and one is .... purple! Our dining room is red, our kitchen is teal, and I can't recall what our living room is... It's so bright and fun. It's not loads of square feet, but it has the most beautiful view of the hills in South Seattle and the Duwamish River, which is 100 yards from our door (but significantly downhill). We actually only about a minute from the highway, but you'd NEVER know it from the few turns you make to get to our place. It feels completely rural - even to the Allentown General Store blocks from our house.

We are both ready for it! Our first place together!

My computer is working again! Thank you honey, for staying on the phone with India for 2 1/2 hours!

Tonight is the first night since Brigadoon ended (the last Brigadoon, not my current production) that I've dyed my hair. I may get ambitious and paint my toenails and pluck my eyebrows. Alan's off opening Irma Vep tonight (preview). I'll get all dressed up tomorrow for the actual opening.

It's been such a busy fall. Pictures to follow of the Hawaii trip. It was a wonderful week off. Alan was a sweetheart, and planned out the whole trip. It did mean we did a lot of movie sights-seeking, but he also found a few wonderful, romantic restaurants. Our final night we splurged on an ocean view hotel right on Waikiki beach.

I'm in rehearsals now for The Boy Who Cried Wolf and Brigadoon. After tomorrow, I only have one more show due before Christmas. It'll be nearly relaxing!

Alan is back off his assignment at Starbucks, which makes me happy! It makes him miserable. But with both of us working 60-80 hours per week, there's no one left to make dinner or deal with household stuff. We agreed when we got married that whoever isn't in tech takes care of the other one, and so far it's worked.

It's good to be back!
