How's Things?

Tuesday, 23 March 2010

Violet and I are living amongst towers of boxes.  We're moving this weekend and I'm excited.  I will truly be sad to leave this beautiful city, KVAL News and the impressive Pacific Northwest but WATE is a great station to work for and I'm lucky they're welcoming me back. 

My mom and daddio are excited to see me and meet Violet and I already have plans to have dinner with a friend on my first night in town.  House shopping is moving forward and I also have to buy a car.  Whew!  This is a "wild ride" time of life and while it's exciting - it can be tiring. 

Tonight I'll probably forego packing and kick back to read the last chapter of Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods.  His story telling is so fabulous, you really hate to get to the end.

Good luck with the move & your new job. Hope everythings goes great and you enjoy being back closer to your family!

one of my favorite books- I love the part where he mentions that if he ever did see a bear he would just shit himself lifeless... I can relate...

Thanks LMJ! Anne - can't wait to get the book where he travels through small town America.

You should listen to "A Walk in the Woods" audio version. It is read by Bill and he has an entertaining way of telling his stories that don't come through in text as well, especially his exasperation with Katz. I don't think it's on CD, but you might find it used on cassettes (remember those?) "In a Sunburned Country" about traveling in Australia was also good.
