I'll be back soon, I promise...

Things are gonna be a bit quiet around here for a little while, and I wanted to let you know what's going on so that you don't think I'm dead, bored with the blog, or sneaking off to Minnesota to try to convince Joe Mauer to let me nurse him back to health.

I've accepted a job back in the Philly suburbs, which is where I'm originally from.  It's a new position in a new-to-me industry, and I think I'll be quite happy there--I'm very excited to get started.  I'll be living about 20-30 minutes from Mama and Papa Grammarphile, about 30 minutes from the Phillies' ballpark, and about 15-20 minutes away from several seriously kickass malls.  To say that I'm stoked is probably the understatement of the century.

My time on Long Island comes to a close mid-June, and I'm spending the time between now and then packing, donating boatloads of stuff to Goodwill, saying goodbye to friends I've met in New York, trying to leave my current office with as much information and help as possible upon my departure, and all the other crazy stuff that comes along with a big move and a new job.  I'll be posting on Red Pen rather sporadically for the next couple weeks--but closer to the end of June, I'll be all settled in and will be back and blogging regularly.  Once I am not so insanely busy, I'll be back to my usual grammar-related snarkiness and mockery...  :)

Congrats on the new gig! And best of luck with the move -- you're taking on two of life's most stressful situations. Plan your margarita breaks accordingly.

Thanks, Laura! I'll need all the luck I can get in the next few weeks. I may also need an IV of margaritas hooked up to my arm... :)

Can't wait until you're here and
settled in your new place. I am so excited for you, Sweetie.

Love you.

I can't wait, either! Love you, too. :)

Congratulations on your new adventure- at least you'll be closer to your home team! I'm going to miss your "Hump Day" posts; they always made me laugh the most.

Thanks, Bridgete! I'll be back soon...I'm excited that I'll have a better environment to write in once I get to Philly!

Thank you, Marie! As soon as I finally get the moving company hired, all the big things are taken care of, at least...well, except packing, which is never any fun! ;)
