Going home! Well, sorta of

It's been a long process but after a couple of years of pushing out resumes and over a dozen interviews, I am headed back to work in the city of Richmond. In fact, I will be working for the city. I start with the IT department of the City of Richmond on July 30.

It is sorta of a homecoming to me. I moved to Richmond in 1991 to go to school and didn't leave until 2005. I met my wife there and we lived there when our sons were born. We still have friends there and I still do some work for Eastern Kentucky University during football season.

We miss Richmond and we look to move back someday. Maybe sooner than later but we will have to wait and see. This is also will be a growing experience for me. I can use my current skill set real quick and be able to learn a lot more in the process. I will miss my current job but it was only a contractor position so the benefits were not the greatest. The people I work with are great but sometimes the needs of the family have to be met and this is a huge step in the right direction.  I can't wait.

I'm going home :)
