Big News

We have big news over here (no, we are not getting more kids - sorry to disappoint some of you). Chris is switching jobs...again. I shouldn't really say again since he has been at the Fed. for over five years; however, in our almost 18 years of marriage this will be his eighth job move. Actually, he's been at the Fed. loger than he has been at ANY other job. Early in our marriage this stressed me out a lot. I'm more of a get-a-job-and-stay-there-until-retirement type of person :) Now is only stresses me out a little :) Chris has always made very smart career moves and he is in demand in his field because of it.

So, anyway, back to the original announcement. Chris will be leaving the Fed. and starting his own business, Agilis Consulting. He has a gig lined up with Thomson Publishing starting in November. Ironically, he worked for Thomson about 15 years ago (when it was West Publishing). Despite the slight anxiety this move causes me, it will be a much shorter commute for Chris and that translates into more time with the family (which is always one of Chris's primary goals).

So, there you go, we are doing our best to help the economy by starting our own business. Next thing you know we're going to go out and buy a bunch of stocks....No one can say we didn't do our part :)
