I’ve accepted an offer to be the Director of Digital Media and Technology at the National Geographic’s JASON Project. It is a great chance for me to get involved with science media, especially science education games.
I am really going to miss many of the folks at PBS. It is always hard to leave friends and talented co-workers behind. That said, this is an amazing opportunity.
So we have put in another bid, on this charming fellow.
I will say that I already am more optomistic, I think this is our most solid offer yet, and its our first offer on a home that is not a forclosure. (There is something comforting about knowing the previous resident left happily, that the home brought them good luck, and that they did not place some kind of curse on the future residents… but thats just me)
Marjee and I are looking forward to our vacation next week, and there is a good chance we will hear somethign about the house before then. That would be fantastic. This will be our first vacation in a while, while we travel a lot it is always with alterior motives, conferences to atend etc… but this time it is a trip out to my fathers, with nothing schedualed. It will be fun to see the pasific northwest agian, we should be able to make time to vist our good friend John in Seatle and enjoy an actual vacation. Thats pretty neat. So cross your fingers, third time just might be the charm!
…so Trevor and I did not get the last house we posted about. No biggie. It was a neat place, but after about 2 hours of disappointment our Realtor has about 5 more foreclosures to show us. We looked at three and got really, really excited about 2 of them. In fact, we think these two beat the first one we bid on, hands down. We went ahead and put another bid on a house today. You can see a picture of the front yard here. No joke! The house is on a private lake. We should not be able to afford this, but again, because it is a foreclosure and needs a little bit of love (not too much) we’re able to make an offer.
