This blog is not dead....

I'm bummed that six months have passed since the last update here. 

Last summer everything went for a loop when we realized we were likely moving. Our old house was in very good shape but needed a lot of little things done to make it salable. Little things that added up and accounted for every single weekend and spare moment.

Likely moving became definitely moving which meant a new role in my wife's company for her, packing, moving, selling our house, buying a new house, and a brand new job in a new town for me. We've been here six weeks and haven't stopped for a moment: new job, new responsibilities, new city, new people, new house (which was in great shape but still has required a trip to Home Depot or Ace every weekend for some new thing). Vet visits for our animals to ensure continuity of care for them--especially our diabetic cat. Plumbers at the house. Figuring out how to get good gluten free food (for my wife) in a new city that's not as forward thinking in that area as Colorado was

We really haven't had a break to speak of over in over six months, and are maybe halfway through our boxes. Maybe we'll catch up over the holidays--my wife has accrued time off, since she's been at her company quite a while. The newbie (me) gets Dec 24 and 25 off, so I won't have much additional time to help.

All that said, it's been a good transition and we're happy. But exhausted, and the end goal (finishing unpacking and getting our house in order) is not in sight.

If I have not been in touch with you, didn't respond to an email, left you hanging in some way...  I apologize. I can't say it will get substantially better in the next month or two, but I'm hopeful. Thanks for your patience.
