A Foote in Paradise

Welcome everyone to my very first post on this thing. I never really got into blogging but I thought I would take a minute or two to post as everything in our lives is changing this might as well too.

I am a man of very divergent impulses. I love for things to be tidy but can't stand actual cleaning. I love to argue but I avoid confrontations. I love my children and yet sometimes I wonder how I might get them into an adopt-a-kid scheme ;). In this vein I have transplanted my family once again to the polar opposite of where we lived before; figuratively speaking of course, although I hear the Indian Ocean is nice this time of year.

For those of you who don't know I accepted a new position within my team at Boeing which requires me to maintain a consistent and local presence. I tried to get a little Matthew-Bot setup but my boss didn't seem to keen on the idea. Obviously he didn't see how well it turned out for Sheldon.

I am out of my mind excited for this opportunity. I've been bored at work for some time and I think this is a great opportunity for me to grow as a person and for our family to grow as well. I truly hope that we are all able to have a great time, build up some wonderful memories and be contented and happy here.

We are moving into a place that is sort of hidden from the street and off the beaten path. It looks like a shack and according to Sarah it looks like a house a serial killer would use.

But it really is a nice place. We are getting the keys tomorrow and we'll take some pictures of the inside for everyone to see. In the interim here is a picture of our back yard.

FYI its sunny and 80 degrees out when we landed. Felt awesome!!! I have to brag now cause in 6 months all of my Arizona folks will have the upper hand. Of course the joke is on them because I love the rain and cold too.

For now in the words of Alexander Matthew Foote, "Happy Washington Day!"
