So, for years, I've fought the whole blogging urge. I know a few people who blog, and who enjoy it - but that wasn't for me. However, since my life is about to completely change - even more than when my daughter was born - I thought I'd give it a try.
For those of you that don't know, I'm currently 42 years old and have lived in the Chicago suburbs my entire life, and have never really thought about leaving. In about 6 weeks, my family is moving to southern Maine.
This is not due to a job relocation; but rather for personal/family reasons. My wife's family is all in that area and she needs to be back there with them. It should also be good for my daughter - growing up with more family support and cousins to play with. How will it work out for me? Well, we'll explore that in later posts!
Luckily for me, my company is being super cool about this and allowing me to work from home (at least until the end of 2011). Hopefully in November/December, we can have further discussions about it and continue the same arrangement - or I'll start looking for a new job!
