While You Were Gone VI

It’s been a year or two since I shared one of these posts with you. I didn’t actually post last year because life was pandemic crazy. I’m glad you were able to miss out on that. It hasn’t been joyous.

I got engaged and married. Dad has been very on board, and I’m pretty sure you would have been as well. Brian’s a nerd like myself, so that helps, and he enjoys travel. Not that we’ve been allowed to do much of it lately, but hopefully our South America trip will happen. We’ll see, as Covid is constantly evolving and finding new ways to make life terrible.

Not that I communicate with your other kids, but I did see a post this morning from your son. He has a big busted lip. I think someone may have finally put him in his place for running his drunk mouth. It’s a guess, but there’s a strong possibility that I’m correct.

All crazy world events and family things aside, I have been looking forward to 2022. This is the year we’re making the move to Europe. Oh, I forgot to mention I moved back stateside and said goodbye to Puerto Rico. That turned out to be for the best as the stress of hurricanes was too much after living through Irma and Maria in 2017. Not that we can fully avoid natural disasters, but I’d prefer to not live directly in the path of something so ferocious if possible.

I’m aiming for Spain. However, it’s probably going to end up with us living in the U.K. Or Germany. Brian and I have very different jobs. I have my own company and he works as a government contractor in the intelligence space. He’s aiming to exit government work but there are still only so many jobs in his world and those two countries seem to be where he can most easily transition. We’ll see.

2022 has only begun and I’m ready to jump to the middle so we can make the move. Who knows, it may result is some interesting stories for another book or at least some posts.

It hasn’t been that exciting of a year, or two, considering one was in lockdown, and the other has been so consumed with work that there is literally no time for anything else. Maybe this year will be different…but I’m fairly certain it won’t.

  1. The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesnt fail me just as much as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, but I actually thought you would have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you could fix if you werent too busy searching for attention.
