What's new?

Well, admittedly, I've been a little derelict in my duties when it comes to keeping this blog up to date, but that's largely because there's absolutely nothing going on in my life right now. I mean, aside from trivial things like my son's first birthday, my father-in-law's base jumping experience, and my decision to quit my job, uproot my family, and move to Kalamazoo to take a new one, there's just nothing going on!

Really, though, my apologies. 'Tis true; we are moving to Kalamazoo. I've left Rhoades McKee -- one of the finest law firms in West Michigan run by some of the finest people I know -- for the Kalamazoo Office of Miller Canfield -- also a fine, fine law firm run by some excellent folks. There were a number of different factors (both personal and professional) involved, but in the end, the opportunity was simply too good to pass up; I think it will prove to be a very good thing on all levels.

Unfortunately, this means that we are in the process of trying to sell our house in the middle of what can most generously be described as a "soft" residential market. We've listed it with a very good broker (Ken Grashuis), though, and I think it will all work out just fine. The flip side of that coin is that it's a great time to be a buyer in Kalamazoo, and thusfar we've rather enjoyed the "house shopping" process. All told, we've done a lot to get ourselves ready for the move and there's still more to do (I had forgotten what a pain in the behind that whole process can be). We'll keep you updated on the progress. In the meantime, if you know anyone looking for a nice house in Bailey's Grove, let them know that this one is available!

Well, that's the update for now. I'll be updating pictures and what not over the next couple of days. Enjoy!
