Um, we're home sleeping in our bed. Wierd.

I like the idea of blogging even though I feel like I’m always behind with posting updates. This is definitely something I’d like to keep up on; but as I’m not a particularly good writer, I think it’s getting tougher to update as we get back into the swing of things.

Anyway - Six months and 26 days after flying out of SeaTac, we arrived home in a one-way rental car around 10:00pm. Our housemates had pie and good Seattle beer ready to go. Molly, our Shitzu-Tibetian Terrier mix dog, greeted us with some uncertainty. She spent a few seconds sniffing out Rachel until she realized who she was and then she went nuts! It has been wonderful being back with her, although, it took a week or two until she came around.

Rachel’s cousins were subleasing our place while we were gone. Since they’re responsible family and we had good communication, we had a smooth transition back into our place. The biggest challenge has been to simply organize all the stuff we brought back to Seattle (accumulated hiking gear, three boxes of china from Rachel’s grandma, boxes from mom’s basement in WI, etc…) and get bills and the house organized before going back to work. I’ve been able to get some hiking in with Molly and I’m enjoying getting back into tennis too.

Rachel and I are sort of putting our 12-month plan together right now. Rachel is currently looking for an Admin Assistant position and working on her gluten-free baking, I’m starting back with Ajilon Finance on the 16th. Prayer is appreciated as we settle in – it’s kind of like we have a fresh start to our lives again, so we feel it’s as important as ever to start off making good decisions.

  1. Well Nick I have enjoyed getting to follow you along your trip and assisting you with getting you gear. I feel as if I was a small part of your journey along the AT getting to see pictures and our chats. I am sure God has a plan for you and that He will make it clear as you start back your job. I wish you and your wife the best of luck while you get adjusted to what your life will be these next few months. If you are ever in the Utah area let me know I would love to meet you and the wife. Take care and good luck.
