This checklist is pretty much complete:

  1. Celine has been accepted
  2. She’s sent in her card saying she’s coming
  3. My company is letting me work from our Portland office
  4. We just emailed our landlords saying we are vacating in August

So, just in case there was any doubt, we are definitely moving to Oregon! We’ve already starting fixing up this place so it’s in good shape (need that security deposit back). We re-sealed the deck today and we may be undertaking some major painting projects in the next few weeks. All in all, it’s a little overwhelming, but we are both excited. Celine is very happy to be going back to school, and I am pumped about living in such a beautiful place and the opportunities at the office out there.

We’ve known for a while now of course, and most of you have known for a while as well. But somehow, sending that email to our landlords really made it officially official in my head. I guess they were the last folks to know, maybe that’s why. Next up, a trip back to the west coast in June to look for our next place to live.

Anyway, if you have any suggestions of great things we must do in Portland or Eugene (or parts in between, or nearby), please let us know! And you like packing boxes or sedating cats, you know where to find us.
