We are alive!

Yes we are alive. It has been a very busy time for us lately. I don't think I've ever had a time in my life that has been as busy as this. I've been working in Seattle now, for over a month. I love my new job! It is the busiest job I've ever had, but I love it. This was something that I had worked for, for about a year. Seattle is awesome. The weather is so nice and cool. In fact it's raining right now. It doesn't rain in the summer as much as you think it would. I love go to the Mariners baseball games. Yes they are horrible, but I love to go to major league baseball. We saw the Tigers and the Ray, and next week we will see my team, the New York Yankees!!!

We found and bought a house that we love. It is north of Seattle which is a little more affordable. We love it, and hope that we have plenty of visitors!! The pets are all very happy especially the kitties. I think they are happy that it isn't so hot. Macie is happy too, just being a creature of habit, she is adjusting to change. She has gone back to her old ways of going to the bathroom in her cage when we are gone for a while. Hopefully she adjusts quickly!
The big news is that Sam has quit her job. With her coming up here, her company wanted her to come into the office and work full time. She loved working at home, but I guess they wouldn't let her continue to do that. Basically, it didn't make sense for us. We wouldn't be able to car pool, and for the extra gas and parking that she would have to pay, it just wouldn't work. So we are going to try the one income scenario for a while. Scary!!!

I got an awesome opportunity to go to New York City for a training for my new position. I was so excited because I've always wanted to go there. Man that is a busy town, but I loved it and saw some way cool things. Here are some pictures.
