A New Job For Topher

A New Job For Topher

Two weeks ago I was let go from Camber. I was really encouraged by the number of people that came forward and suggested jobs they knew were available, or outright asked me to apply for openings they had. Much love to the WordPress community. One was from Rob Howard at Howard Development and Consulting. He…

Looking For A New Job

Looking For A New Job

This last Thursday I was let go from Camber Creative and I’m not sad about it. Let me be clear, Camber is a fantastic company, and everyone who works there is a delight. They have great policies, the pay is great, etc. They were also good to me in ways no employee has a right…

A New Place To Live

A New Place To Live

As I mentioned in my last post Cate got a new job at Automattic. She asked for some stability for a while, which meant not living in Agnes full time. As it turns out, Agnes is hard to get parts for, so it’s still in the shop anyway. All that said, the girls still wanted…

Pivot!

In my last post about our life’s adventures I mentioned we were going to spend the winter in a cabin up north. We’ve decided not to do that. There were a plethora of reasons, and it just makes sense to stay here until spring. Cate accepted a job at Automattic, and could use some months…

Saying Goodbye To Claire

Saying Goodbye To Claire

Less than a week after we said goodbye to Lucky I find myself writing another obituary, for our sweet little Claire. When my eldest was 9 she mentioned she’d like a puppy for her 10th birthday. Lucky was a Rat Terrier, and we really liked her, so Cate went looking for Rat Terriers. She found…

Saying Goodbye To Lucky

In late 2004 Cate and I started discussing whether we wanted a dog. The girls were 5 and 3, and we needed to decide if we wanted a pet to be part of their life. Then one fateful evening in January 2005 my father-in-law called and said “Do you still want a dog?”. Apparently someone…

Rounding out 2021

Rounding out 2021

We haven’t taken Agnes out on a trip yet, we’ve had a really busy summer. That said, this week we’re taking it back to the shop and they’re going to basically show us how to use it, right down to the last switch and button. Then we’ll feel a lot more comfortable with it. We…

Our 23rd Anniversary

Our 23rd Anniversary

Cate and I honeymooned in St. Ignace and Mackinac Island 23 years ago this week. At the time we said we’d go back every year, but we didn’t. We started going back every year several years ago, and now that we’re more established we can usually afford to spend the night on the island, which…
