Settling down

After last post I took a long hiatus from writing in my blog.  I'm sure that so many people missed me (heavy sarcasm implied).  But now that things are settling down I've got the urge to start writing again.  We'll see how long the urge lasts.

Well, we finally finished all of our moves.  We moved from Maryland to Utah.  The move was actually worse than I could have imagined it would be, but I'm glad I made it back in one piece.
We stayed with my parents for a bit while searching for apartments and acclimating to my new job.
We did find an apartment, a nice little duplex where we have 3 times the space that we had in Maryland and we're spending nearly half as much on rent.  It's been pretty great.
The job is also great.  I work for a software company now instead of a pest control company.  The change has been very good for me.

This move and this new job has confirmed to me that what I wrote in my last post was not just an angry rant.  It was an angry rant, no denying that, but it was more than that.  It had truth in it.  It doesn't matter how much money you're making, if you're not working with great people and the job is taking more time from you than is reasonable, then it's not worth having the job.  Go work somewhere else, make less money, but be happier and have more time to pursue things that actually make you happy.
Also moving really does suck.  There's just no way around it.  And, additionally, the more you move the more it sucks.  It just keeps sucking more and more the more you do it.  So I think that we are done moving for a long while.  I think we'll just hunker down here and save until we can buy our own house, then we'll move.  Until then I don't plan on going anywhere unless I absolutely have to.

Also I've been thinking of a few things that I want to do with my blog to spice it up.  I don't always have a lot to write about, so I'm going to start branching out and doing some new things to shake it up a bit.  Hopefully all of you wonderful people (all 6 of you) will enjoy the new things I'm going to do . . . whenever I get around to it.

So stay tuned, because one day there will be something awesome on this blog. . . .
