4 months and counting!

So our household is down one rebecca, as becky sadly has left us until the end of august!! I don't spite her the time at home, as this is her first trip back in the 11 months she's been here! But those of us who are left behind are sad! Well mostly me, because i'll be leaving quito soon after she comes back and our reign of rebeccas will be ended! cesar is selling our apartment, so becky and rebecca are moving just a bit up the street to an identical (but with a balcony and snazzy view of the city!) apartment in the same complex. Both of those crazy gals have signed on to jobs that will keep them in quito until next spring/summer! Rebecca has a big project to keep her busy at Faro, and Becky got a sweet job as a classroom teacher at Einstein (the jewish high school)! Congratulations by the way! Actually 4 months from today I will be getting on the same flight as becky back to chicago for good!!! which is exciting in some ways, but i hate the idea of leaving these girls and our new kitty, and wish that it was at all pratical in some way to come back and visit. Of course everyone says "just stay", which i'm increasingly tempted to do. Don't worry, i won't actually pull a katie, but i am tempted. And as it turns out, Natalia, who I had given up for dead (but was actually studying for the bar on a beach in mexico) is coming to viist after all!!! which is exciting but sadly means i'll be leaving my job and everything sooner than i thought. well i won't speak too soon, god knows what i'm even doing with my life! hmm, well at this exact moment i'm going to teach a class because my student walked in. maybe he will have some answers for me.

  2. de-lurking briefly to say that I did start putting up some baby photos. More to come soon, but first napping while the baby sleeps!

  3. this comment really belongs on smarch.org, but since there's nowhere to leave comments: RICH! could you not have marked your entry from july 18 with SPOILER TAGS? not all of us have gotten all the way through the left behind books, and now that i know chloe gets executed... well, what's the point, really? also: viv from walk the line is ginnifer goodwin, who also plays the youngest wife in big love, which ties together polygamy in heaven, you know, like your rayford hypothesis... anyway.

  4. I would've used spoiler tags if there were any surprises, but this is coming straight from the book of revelations. You already know what's going to happen!

    (in retrospect, you're probably right. sorry....)

  5. Drugs are just bad, you should try to use Herbal Alternatives as a temporary replacement to loose the dependance!

  7. yeah, sorry rich if that comment sounded less winky and teasing than it was. i was not actually mad. in fact, you're the only other person i know who loves those books as much as i do. they seem to get progressively more racist, sexist, and outrageous the further into it one reads. oh man. i love apocolyptic literature! one of my interns is writing her div iii on that next year and i am already excited to read it.
