Hello Again

My father-in-law (hi Barry!) called Saturday. His first words after hello: “Why haven’t you updated your website, ya lazy bugger?” It made me laugh and stammer, and realize I haven’t been around here much lately.

The biggest reason was that we moved, and the office was discombobulated and unpleasant to work in. This weekend I fixed that problem, so here I am. Here are a few things that have happened…

Went to annual training in Bend, Oregon. Believe it or not, I had a great time, and even learned a few things. Bill and I had some nice adventures, and as soon as we dig out the camera cables, I’ll have some pics.

We finished moving, and have slowly been digging out of boxes and organizing things. I never new I wanted a view until I had one. Suddenly, we’re not so keen to buy a house–a little more space made all the difference.

After much lawyer firing and handwringing, we submitted Bill’s immigration packet to the BCIS on Friday. He should finally have a work permit in 6-8 weeks. We are gleeful.

I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but I’ll worry about that later. To finish up, here are a few things I’ve been reading lately:

Beyond Brilliance, Beyond Stupidity: the good and bad of urban planning, transportation, and design.

SCOTUSblog: all about my bosses.

And something I’ve been playing obsessively: Differences.

    Thanks for the comments! We no longer play at Mount Tabor though. We are trying to play in more of a variety of places. We now have a website up where you can see where we are playing next…which is Monday the 15 of December at Conan’s Pub on Hawthorne 9-10. Nice Website by the way
