The End of the Whirlwind

  • On March 2, I accepted my new position after a long courting and negotiation
  • On March 13, I turned in my resignation to my old employer.  I fully expected to have been perp-walked out the building that day, as they did with every other employee that resigned, but my boss had an "Oh shit!" moment and felt the need to keep me on.  It was the best two weeks of my work there.
  • On March 24 I had my last day at work, and moved into a hotel in Minnesota for a week.
  • On April 3, I moved into a rental house until May 17.  In this period I had additional trips to Green Bay (3 times), a weekend in the Cities, and a weekend at the duck camp.
  • On May 18, I moved into our cabin on Leech.
  • I moved out of the rental on May 23, and headed back to Green Bay to close the move.
  • On May 25 we moved back to the cabin.
  • On April 10 we moved out of the cabin and into a hotel.
Though it all we logged countless hours on the road and mileage back and forth.  I lost countless hours of sleep trying to get comfortable in unfamiliar confines.  We spent way, way more that we could have expected, but in the end it is worth every penny.  It has been beyond crazy.

Thankfully, all of that comes to an end.  Today we close on our new home, and our odyssey comes to a conclusion.  

It was long, hard, uncomfortable, and lonely.  However, though it all I met some incredible people, took on a great new role in a fantastic company, and finally feel at home.  Yes, it took a lot, but given how things worked out, I would have done even more had I needed to do so,
