Life Trifecta Complete 

This morning, after three days of agony, our realtor called with a final no-we-won't-go-lower price on the house, which we promptly accepted. There's oodles of paperwork and inspections to come, but we're pretty much homeowners as of today.

In celebration, we spent an hour arguing over paint and wallpaper at Sherwin Williams with the baby, and then, after picking up the three-year-old, headed up into the wilds of mid-state Vermont for the brother-in-law's first annual pig roast and all-around jamfest -- a damn good party.

Work starts Monday with an all-district professional development day. I'll be attending a full-day workshop/discussion on technology in the district. Rumor has it most of the folks in our group have heard great things about me, are really looking forward to meeting me. Kids arrive Wednesday, and my classroom is a bare bones disaster.

And to think that five months ago, I had no job, no home, and a family of three.

We'll be nomads for six-to-eight while we close on the house, and all my school clothes remain too deep in storage to retrieve before moving. But it's all downhill from here, folks. Thanks to all who stuck by us. We now resume normal blogging, whatever the hell that might look like.

When I walked into my classroom 7 school years ago, it was an empty room with no furniture, and certainly no computers. It had hardly enough electrical power for 10 computers, much less 20+ and only 1 internet connection.

I wouldn't say we have "come a long way" (lack of funds), but we have certainly made some progress.

You will be great! You will have a fabulous lab up and running in no time. If you need anything, let me know.
So now yer life's outta the grey, you gonna change the blog background to somethin' colorful?
