Back to Work

I had plans to update this yesterday…figures the day I’d go to update my blog the server needs a reboot.

Last week Ari and I went on an Alaskan cruise with both sets of parents.  It was a nice vacation.  We visited Ketchikan, Tracy Arm, Juneau, and Skagway, and then stopped in Victoria, BC on the way back to Seattle.  I definately look forward to visiting Alaska again…and hopefully next time Ari will be 100% healthy and I’ll have the right shoes.  We did manage to get in one hike and the view from the first lookout was breathtaking.  Every city we visited looked to have some beautiful areas for camping, hiking or kayaking and I’d love to take advantage of it some day.

When we weren’t being tourists, we were either working on the budget (a long overdue project) or sitting in the hot tub.  There were two hot tubs at the back of the boat that were outside and allowed us to soak in 180 degree panoramic views of scenery. The only thing missing was the tropical drink.  And to top it all off, my mom and I each got massages at the ship’s Lotus Spa the last day on the ship.

I could say so much more about the trip, but there’s not really enough time.

Returning to work was actually better than I expected.  I was relaxed and the vacation pretty much signified the transition break between positions.  I’m still working on some documentation of the new tools my old group just launched, but other than that (which still kind of fits under my new position) I am doing Software Quality Assurance now – a position I get to help define.  I’m actually looking forward to taking some classes at BCC soon to help me figure out just what this job should be.

Anyway…time for work.
