Turn! Turn! Turn!

There's a damned good reason why I haven't updated much throughout the last month. My whole life is flip-turned-upside-down.

Just when Craig and I had started to develop this reputation as the old married couple among our friends (hence, the name of this blog), I get a new job offer which requires us to sell our house and move to Boca Raton, Florida. Yes, folks, by the end of August, we'll be out of the Midwest and into hurricane territory.

I guess I'm not done with the nomadic ways afterall!

The new job is a near perfect opportunity and I'm really excited to get started. First things first, though. I just put in my resignation yesterday and still have 4 years worth of work here to transition to my coworkers.

Then, I have to get our house listed.

Then, I have to get the office cleaned up so I can work from home during the summer months.

Then, then, then...it seems like the 'to do' list is endless.

Cap it all off with some family drama (my grandpa is dying) and still trying to prepare for the duathlon and triathlon and you can understand why my stress levels have just about peaked. Bear with me, I'll try to keep all of you updated when I can. I'll be traveling a ton this summer, but we WILL be having a MASSIVE going away party before we leave Milwaukee. If you're in the area, I expect to see your dirty mug!

Thanks, guys!

I spoke with Betsy about the possibility of @US organizing a reunion for us, but I think that, at least for this summer, it might be more feasible (and FUN) for combine the RRR and our going away party.

I hope you guys are up to partying with our neighbors and the choir babes.

Give me some time to find a date that will work...oh, and sell my house!
