All Moved In

Saturday was move day and the transition went very smoothly.  We had Matt and Catherine Trumbo, Kaaren and Raymond McIsaac, Sean Rees, and a sick-but-helping-in-spirit Mary Phillips to help us move the big stuff.  It took 2.5 hours from start to done.  We then sat around chatting, eating pizza and drinking homebrew.  I made up an Irish Red just for the occasion, dubbed "The Crew Brew." The first couple bottles were a little harsh, but they sat for another few days before the move and have since mellowed out into a very pleasant beer.

This week has been spent frantically getting prepared for our trip to Ireland.  Kim has been the travel agent for Sean and I on this one. In addition to being a Rockstar mover the entire week leading up to move day, she has also been booking accomodations, tours, and various forms of travel necessary for the trip.  Her free time from the unfortunate layoff of was truly a blessing in disguise.

Speaking of work, Kim has a third, and hopefully final, interview this Thursday.  The position is for an engineering project assistant similar to what she has been doing in the last two positions. It sounds right up her alley.  Send good thoughts her way Thursday morning.

My work has been going very well, I'm really growing professionally.  I think a lot of that has to do with the stellar team I happen to be working with.  I feel quite lucky to be part of this awesome group, both personally and technically. If you're reading this and you're part of that group, don't let it go to your head. Otherwise, know the Pelco CDL rocks!
