Friday I leave for Illinois. Get to spend the week of Christmas at home with my wife and sons. The oldest arrives home Saturday after a year-long deployment to the Middle East. The youngest is already home on break from college. The middle son works for a bank and lives at home.
First four weeks on the new job have been good. Even though I am in the same business as with my prior employer, still lots to learn. Good management and colleagues.
Last weekend moved out of the hotel and into a rented room. Posted an ad on Craig's List and landed a room in a house owned by an elderly widow. $340 a month. Includes private bathroom and full use of house. Quiet location about thirteen miles from the office.
Looking to buy a house. No hurry. Getting up to speed on the new job and getting to know the area will take time. I think it will take six to nine months to find a house and get fully relocated.

glad to hear you'll all be together..
did the rented room thing when the ex and I split. amazing how the economy and craigslist have changed the world. lived with 3 young navy recruits that ended up going to iraq. when they left, got another military kid for 9 months before he deployed and then kept the place to myself until I bought a house. it's a cheap way to go..'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten
