things are great. still learning alot about the formal post secondary education world. great working conditions, etc. as hard as it was to leave, it was the perfect move for me. i have really started to spread my wings as a manager/consultant (aka bureacrat) and enjoy the challenges that go along with it.
sarah is finishing her second year of college. she will be transferring to uw-madison in january. she still wants to pursue medicine as a career (md) and specialize in emergency medicine.....go figure. hope your health is good and the family is doing well. sounds like things are going well with the change in your department structure.
