Greetings from Ireland, and Shifting

Last week was a doozy. We were counting down til our departure to Ireland, Jon was required to go to NYC for business during the week, things were intense at work for me, and serendipitously on Monday morning, I was emailed about interest in a job interview.

By the end of the week, I had a job offer for a job less than 2 mi from home with great benefits. I gave 1 mo notice to my current job (my boss seemed happy for me, but not so happy at the same time.) The house was cleaned and we were packed. We spent Friday evening with friends, having a wonderful time, and then Saturday we started our journey. I’m still discombobulated because my life took a turn last week, and hopefully for the better.

We’ve been wandering around Dublin so far, and today we are going to wander more. There seems to be a marathon today, which may account for all the American athletic types I’ve seen around. What a coincidence we just happen to come here during a tourist time.

The weather is not unlike Seattle, which is a relief. Jon has now approached me at this little computer station, so it’s time for breakfast.

Here’s to all life’s adventures!

  1. Hey- I saw your comment on the Irish beer scene over at and was wondering if you had any specific “must-sees” to suggest for someone who’s also into the craft beer scene. My wife and I will be in Ireland for the first time in March; we are visiting Dublin, Limerick, and Galway, and then we proceed to London. I’ve already noted your suggestions about Galway Hooker and Porterhouse Brewpub in Dublin (including An Brain Blasta). If you have any other thoughts or general tips, please let me know. Otherwise, thanks for those suggestions!

    You don’t have to reply to this comment; you can send me an email if you’d like.
