I am in the process of moving halfway across the country so I won't be able to write much until I am settled in the new place and all my stuff gets back to me. This has been a long process that took most of my time.
For the first time in my life I am actually taking a full-time job in another state, after living around here for all but one decade or so, one year in high school and a year in the Bay Area 20 years ago. I had a number of folks who wanted to hire me here but basically nothing was all that interesting any more. The new job is quite worth the effort in getting there.
Even better will be that my commute will drop from 2.5 hours per day to just 30 minutes total and eventually when we move only 20 minutes. That's the shortest commute I've ever had outside of working at home. The idea of not being exhausted when I get home from work will take getting used to.
No more excuses that I'm too tired to write!
