It has been quite a few months since I posted last and there has been plenty going on.

On the bright side, I do get to keep my job – I just have to do it from 3,000 miles away.
We’ll be celebrating our last Thanksgiving with Scott and Lori in Scott’s place tomorrow (thanks for the invite Scott, and the cooking Lori!) which will be excellent. We’ll also be around for the inauguration and will have had at least a small part of our stay under someone other than George W.
