We made it alive to our destination in Bethesda Maryland. The new house is small, but we will make the best of it. Got there about 5pm-ish last sunday, and had the truck unloaded by 1am. Jack got back to his house yesterday, and today I am in Raleigh NC going thru New Hire Training with my new employer. I expect to return home tomorrow evening.

Cardinals win 31-10 vs the Miami Dolphins

Last year the Cardinals won a total of 8 games. Miami won a total of ONE (1) game. And yet there were
Miami fans at the game talking smack. ROFL! Still, it was interesting to see the Stadium and facilities.

I got the job!

I got my dream job! Now it's time to hitch up the wagons and head east! It's going to be a busy 3-4 weeks. The pictures we will be posting during the drive from Phoenix AZ to Washington DC should be interesting!

Dog-gone tired...

Someone's just had about as much excitement as she can handle. Now we are packing the entire house into
boxes as we wait to hear if I'm going to get any relocation assistance.


Well, I've been doing temporary contract work, which is working out rather well. I have a very good customer that I am working with as a Linux System Administrator. I still haven't heard anything from "back east", but expect to have some news next week (after 2 Sept). Wait and see....

Re: Why is this here?

Not my idea of a fun time, but I am currently unemployed and waiting on some potential job offers to (hopefully) come in. In the meantime I'm in deep doo-doo and actively seeking employment. Notice the "charitable contributions" button on the right side of this page. I'll take any help I can get. A job offer would be better.

Why is this here?

Here's the story. We are getting ready to leave Phoenix, after living here for 10 years. Goodbye 120 degree weather, dust storms and all the other things that make Phoenix such an awesome place to hang out. When we leave here, we'll be driving cross country with 2 dogs and a cat. So we thought it would be interesting for family and friends to have this blog so they can see "how we are doing".

So the plan is to end up somewhere outside the Washington DC Metro Area. Why there you ask? Simple. My new job is there. Hopefully. What I mean is that I have been offered a new job there, but I'm still waiting on the paperwork, which the recruiters reassure me is forthcoming. My new employer wants me to start working on 1 Sept 2008, so I hope the paperwork shows up soon. In the mean time, we have been preparing for the move.

Therefore, wish us luck and watch this space for more news!
