+ absolutely fired…

I know, I know…. I tease you all with a new blog, and promptly forget about it for several months. For those of you who know me well, this is pretty much right on par. I get a great idea and start after it with the best of intentions, only to drop the ball for some other shinny one–or a bigger and more important one. I really do hope to maintain this someday, but no promises of consistency just yet.

At the moment we are still juggling a monster remodel of our duplex ( not nearly as monster as it might have been with out the wisdom of my wife =), a blossoming young company, growing involvement in a church that is busting at the seams, and family spread all over the northwest. The crazy part is that we still pretend that we have a life most of the time, and we go out with people now and then.

Our business really is going well, and we’re excited to see where it takes us as it grows and takes shape. The time investment is still quite significant, but we hope that it pays off, and not at too high a price. We have a great team and the privilege of serving some exceptional clients. My travel has tapered down a bit as our Spokane office is off and running now and I can focus on developing our services and improving our current offerings.

Aside from work, Alyssa and I were able to sneak away for a weekend in the Great North. Although it was a whirlwind trip, the timing could not have been better. We spent a little over a day and a half wandering around Victoria BC, shopping, talking, and just leaving all of our cares at the airport. If you ever have the chance, tea at the Empress is well worth the time. It is an architectural marvel–not to mention the first-class teas and fare. The Irish Times pub was also a great stop. I may be a bit biased in that, given our great love of most Irish pubs (Kell’s is one of our favorite Portland haunts).

Hopefully I won’t be six months in writing the next post, but only time will tell. Feel free to chide me over not keeping this up; there is no motivator like a good public taunting, and it doesn’t get too much more public. Cheers!

    Laura and I had tea at the empress in October of .. gosh .. 2005. Laura was 5mos pregnant with Selah – and looked great with her gluten free tea cakes. The food was excellent and we had a great time. Glad you guys got up there too. I won’t harrass you anymore about not posting on your blog =)
