Moving [back] to Urbana, IL (Part I)

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

Rebecca and I are moving back to Champaign-Urbana, IL to allow Rebecca to pursue a Ph.D. in Human and Community Development/Family Studies at UIUC.  I will be sticking with Qualcomm who, conveniently, opened up a C-U office last year!  Should be a fun and interesting experience, if nothing else.

But, it involves moving, which is never fun.  We have good friends in both locations, so we have the bitterness of leaving contrasted with the excitement of being able to see old friends again.  We will be driving starting tomorrow with the two cats in the back seat.  This will be Henrietta’s first road trip, so we’re hoping she takes well to it.  Additionally, we have the excitement of our first house purchase (we close this Friday).

We got our townhouse packed (partially by movers) this afternoon.  I’m taking a break from cleaning out our place and ‘borrowing’ our neighbor’s WiFi to catch-up on news and email… fortunately, nothing else seems to be going down.

Stay tuned…

Introducing Henrietta Pussycat

We (I) finally broke down and said yes to another cat. Meet Henrietta Pussycat Scherba Swartz Murmelstein (‘Henni’ for short):

We tried to keep Homer away from Henrietta (3+ pounds his junior) as best as we could, but eventually she decided that that the guest room just wasn’t her thing. Fortunately, they are getting along quite well–I will upload more pictures as she continues to do cute things.
