I don’t know why I’ve put this off for so long, but I have… Anyway, I do actually have some big news though most people who read this blog already know about it: I accepted a tenure track position at the University of Tampa, in Tampa, FL. We’ll be moving to Tampa this summer.

It’s a great opportunity for me and I’m very excited about it. Even though Debi doesn’t presently have a job down there, she has applied for a few and is also considering going back to school to get her PhD in Public Health (at University of South Florida).

On a different news front: We just listed our condo for sale last week (Saturday, to be precise). The next day, our furnace went out. Monday we dropped $3,000 for a new furnace that we’ll use for a total of 3 or 4 months… Grrrh! We aren’t very happy about that incident, but such is life…

All in all, we’re excited. Debi gets to live somewhere warm (she’s always cold) and I’ll have a job at a great little Liberal Arts University teaching what I want to teach. We’ve been busy planning and organizing things, which will probably continue for a while (so expect even fewer posts from me than usual). We’re headed down to Tampa in mid-March to scout out places to live. Hopefully I’ll snap a few pictures here and there of our new community to post here.

  1. Congrats! It great that you’ll land in a place that’s a good fit for both of you. And certainly nice to have the job search stress over with. 😉

  2. That’s awesome! Too bad nothing opened up for you at the Western Wyoming Community College in Rock Springs. I know how much you wanted to live in Wyoming.
    You’ll love Tampa!!!
    I look forward to some pictures.

  3. I was really hoping for something at the Western Wyoming Community College, but I don’t think I was qualified anyway. Shucks! Mind you we would definitely have taken an offer there – your description of the lovely town and graceful wind make it seem very attractive compared to the constant warm temperatures and beaches of Florida. Too bad I didn’t get an offer…

    Of course, now you’ll know someone in Florida… Good excuse for a family vacation!
