Coming around again

March 25, 2007

I’ve had a long hiatus from posting to my site but in my defense a lot has changed in my life over the past 10 months. I was a little overwhelmed and had to take a step back to compose myself. I have done that and am able to get back into the fold.

What changed in my life you ask? Well, my wife and I moved from Massachusetts, where we have lived for 10 years, back to Connecticut where she grew up. This was harder on me then on her. The move happened in June and I ended up commuting 120 miles back and forth to Boston for work. YUK! That equates to 3600 miles and $700 a month in gasoline. The total commute was 5 hours a day plus my 8 hours in the office. This scenario took about 120% of my time so my side projects had to give. This went on until October of 2006.

During this same time period, we were holding two mortgages because the condo in Mass. hadn’t sold. I was completely stressed out to say the least. Having the second house caused extra trips to Mass every other weekend to keep up the other property. I am really lucky the winter was extremely lite.

Fast Fwd: I landed a job at CBS here in CT and the house sold in December. I am finally getting my life back so here I am :)
