Uncle JoeBo took a big step yesterday. First of all, he decided to start talking in third person (and calling himself Uncle JoeBo) and he put money down on a new apartment. He has been a bit uncommital in his life over the last few years (for good reason he thinks) and this was a big step. He just leaped. He did not think, he just did it, which is something that has become so unfamiliar that it is scary as hell to him.
(Exit third person, that was a bad idea) I know that in your mind this is not a big deal because almost every person that I have talked to has said, “what’s the big deal, it’s just moving” or “It’s only a year,” but for some reason I have MADE it a big deal in my mind… I am sure that there is a psychologist out there that would tell me something about the baggage of a former life or something like that… and maybe that IS part of. I am sure that it is. I have felt really sad about the state of my life. I think this is a BIG step out of the shit that has been consuming me.
So I am happy. I am excited. I am ready for something new… I ran with a smile on my face yesterday. I imagine my amazing old things blending with my amazing newness and it makes me want to cry tears of joy… I guess it IS more than a new apartment.
(Quick note to Jamie, Ryan, Matt, Jeff and anyone else that likes moving… Start thinking about what you want for lunch on moving day.)

Seriously though, I have a Target across the street, Johnny’s BBQ within spitting range and I will bike to work during the summer.
Finally a kitchen without a furnace in the middle of it!
I’ll clog that… Too gross to write on a blog?
It’s not exactly the Hilton from the outside, but there is off street parking, cleanliness and no homeless people to heckle me! … Me nieces might even be able to visit me!
