A little update . . .

Things have been quiet around here, mostly because there have been a lot of changes but not a lot happening. The Lizard King received a job offer at the end of October. Within a little over a week, he was on the job. It all happened so fast! We are so grateful for this opportunity!!

When LK and I met, he was a CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management Systems) guru, working as a contractor/consultant, converting customers from one software system to another, cleaning up, mapping and converting data. This is something he loves to do and, for a variety of reasons, hasn't had an opportunity to do since we got married. He is so happy to be back at it.

There is only one drawback. He has to travel for work. This is where our Afghanistan experience helps. Compared to that, this is a breeze. The travel is within the United States for starters and the period of time he is gone is significantly shorter than three months . . . by a lot.

Princess and I are handling the shorter periods pretty well. We have moments of missing him, but all in all, we're doing well. We have been staying busy with friends and playdates. We are both grateful for our wonderful community.

LK is on his way home right now and we will be celebrating Thanksgiving together. I'll have photos to share soon.

Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!!


  1. Congrats on the Lizard King's new job. Happy thanksgiving.

  2. Bummer he is away, but yay for work and for shorter trips - in non war-zones at that!!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Shady :-)

  3. Yay that LK is back doing something he really enjoys. So glad to hear that even though he does have to travel, that it's not far or for too long.

    Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. :D

  4. I am glad to hear that things are going well. I know that separation can be hard to deal with.
