I hope I'm not the only one who starts grooving to techno memories when I read "it has begun!"  Ah.. Mortal Kombat....

What has begun?  The move, the move to New Jersey.  Today the packers came (no, not Green Bay--you'd be surprised the looks you get when you say "the packers are coming to my house.").  They said they'd be here at 8a, so I was surprised when Mrs. dotNetTemplar yelled "I think they're here!" at me as I was in the shower at 7:40.  What a start, but it was a mostly uneventful and good day.

They packed for a solid seven hours, the two of them, and now, as I sit here amidst the walls of boxes and barren walls surrounding them, I think I should feel or think something great or deep.  Mostly I just feel relieved.  It's been more than six weeks since I decided to join Infragistics, but due to prior commitments, I've had to put off the move.  Of course, the wise angel on my shoulder tells me that it was good that I had so long to prepare, but I'm the kind of guy that wants to act right away when I make a decision to make it real.

But now it's here.  The move is upon us.  Tomorrow the movers (formerly known as the packers) return to pick up all our stuff and take off with it to various and sundry other cities across the eastern US to pick up others' belongings before they'll show up on our doorstep in a week or so. 

In the meantime, the fam and I will be leaving Monday morning for a three-day-tour of our own, overnighting in the well-known towns of St. George, SC and Colonial Heights, VA before finally arriving in our new home in Princeton, NJ on Wednesday, assuming all goes according to plan.  Traveling with two small children, a cat, and a bun in the oven should make it.. interesting, but we'll make it.  Fun fun fun!

Sorry to see you leave the Tampa area. Good luck with your new job and the move. And congrats on the bun in the oven!! :)

Reading your post brought back some memories when I moved from Puerto Rico to the US. I had less "cargo" :-) back then, but it was a similar venture. I wish you the best. You are a very talented and smart guy. We all gonna miss your talks here in Florida, so stop by the user group whenever you can.

Best Regards.

Well I will be joining you just up the road, in Plainsboro, NJ. I just got back from my house/apartment hunting trip as my company will be moving me up there to work in Piscataway. Gotta love the Princeton area. Best looking campus I have seen ever. Cya up there at one of the DNUGs.

Congrats on the move north Ambrose. You're not exactly in Scranton, PA like you once asked me about, but it's especially nice in Princeton. I hope you enjoy the area. Hopefully I'll get to see you at events other than the MVP Summit and ASPInsiders. Good luck!
