Just a quick note because I realized that I have yet to post anything about this on here…
In case you’re wondering why I haven’t been posting as much recently (or perhaps you never wondered, because it’s nothing out of the ordinary for me) it’s because when I have a free moment I am spending it planning and packing for a move across the country in, oh, about a week.
Yep, we’re movin’!
My wife has recently accepted a position in Portland, Oregon, and we fly west on Thanksgiving Day.
Although we’re definitely still in the bittersweet stage as we say goodbye to friends and the community we’ve built here in the Lehigh Valley, we’re actually really excited about it. The job looks like a great fit, and since she is from the area our boys will be suddenly surrounded by cousins and aunts and uncles and grandparents and great-grandparents. My family in British Columbia will suddenly be within far, far easier distance to visit.
And really, for an artsy guy, who loves to cook and eat good food, and wants to live in an area that is friendly to stay-at-home dads, could there be a better place than Portland? I mean, seriously.
Anyhow, just wanted to let you all know. Hopefully the move will go smoothly and I’ll be all up and running with lots of anecdotes about How Not To Move With Toddlers soon enough.
