It’s a Girl!

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

Early Monday morning, Rebecca and I welcomed our daughter into this world… and she is everything that we hoped for and more.


  • Girl
  • 7 lbs, 6 oz

Now I’ll have something more fun to write about…

Camera is Back!

Friday, August 15th, 2008

So, my digital camera (Canon PowerShot G3) is back!  I had accidentally dropped it in the middle of our home inspection and had dislodged one of the lens groups.  Fortunately, nothing major was broken and the good folks at MCVR were able to repair the camera for less than $100.00–I would highly recommend them to anybody looking to repair a digital camera.

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…
