I’m a bad, bad blogger. I’ve managed to completely fail to blog anything about the major news in our lives. Specifically, we’re moving to Portland.
To answer the usual questions: I’ll be continuing to work for Yahoo!, telecommuting full-time; and we picked Portland because we really like the walkability, the intimacy, and the vibrancy of the city. We’ve been talking about leaving LA for a while and it finally seemed like the right time to do it (in no small part because of the looming kindergarten issue, plus the impossibility of buying a decent house in LA in the current market, even on a Y! salary).
As for when... ah... today.
The movers came this morning. It was a traumatic experience on a level that I have only experienced once or twice before in my life. In theory, we hit the road tomorrow, if we’ve finished sorting out the disaster area that is our house by then. There’s a really upsetting amount of stuff still here that was supposed to go on the truck, plus a totally unreasonable amount of trash.
I’ll try to write about the moving company experience later, although probably not until we’ve arrived in Portland and have gotten some unpacking done.
(As an aside, I’ve turned off comments for the time being because I’m still getting a moderate amount of comment spam getting through Akismet and I’d rather not have a week of clean up to do all at once.)
