Catching up - part 1

Posted Nov 17, 2008 in Events, Family, Personal.

I know. I haven't blogged for ages, and I feel bad about it. An awful lot has been happening over the last few months, and it has been hard to even think about articulating it. Things are beginning to settle down now, so I'm going to make an effort to catch you up with what has been going on.

The biggest news of the summer is that my wife and I sold our house at the end of September. The place went to a lovely young couple looking to start a family, so we are delighted that it has gone to good people who will appreciate the big rooms and garden, friendly neighborhood and safe environment it had to offer. We know they will be very happy there.

We are now living in an apartment in Malvern, Pennsylvania. It's about 30 minutes from our old place, but much closer to where my wife works, making commuting easier for her. The area is very pretty, and there is excellent shopping in nearby Exton, Downingtown and King of Prussia. Although it is small, the apartment is big enough for the two of us to feel comfortable. We decided to move here to save money for a downpayment on a new home in a couple of years, but those plans may change depending on our circumstances - I'll talk more about that in a later blog entry.

    Hi, Tim.

    Yeah, things are getting a bit easier for me, so I will be able to blog more often. Heavy snow in my corner of Pennsylvania today, by the way. This is the first snow of the year, and everyone is driving like they are brain dead.
