Four months ago, I left Boise and came to the Portland area to work. I had been out of work for six months, so I did it even though it wasn't the ideal situation and my wife was staying in Boise.
Well, I've been offered (and have accepted) a job back in Boise, so next week I'll pack up and go home.
I feel lucky to have been adopted by the Portland NOM/FLAK/ExMo/PostMo community. I've loved the monthly get-togethers and other opportunities I've had to hang out with you great folks. I will really miss you all. Thanks for putting up with me.
