Just a Little Info on the State of The Blog (and General Frugal GM "Stuff")

Just a Little Info on the State of The Blog (and General Frugal GM "Stuff")
Just wanted to let my 12 readers know what's been going on and where I'm at now with regards to several RPG efforts, including this blog.....thankfully it's good news.

I wasn't shy about posting that I was leaving Boise, ID for a position in Oklahoma. A good, I'd dare to say great, job opportunity came up and I had less than a month to move out, sell the house, and move me, two cats, and a dog the 1400 miles and change. I'd lived in Boise...in one house, since 2002, so I had a lot of crap...er belongings to go through, deal with, whatever.

Anyway, I get down here, move into a house and show up for my 1st day on the job only to be told I don't have a job to go to. There was an issue with the government contract the job was for, namely that a different company had been awarded the contract! I held fast here for a couple weeks before I was actually allowed to start work, but things were really tenuous and most everything just seemed on hold for a couple of months until the contract was hammered out. Basically a lot of drama well above my paygrade and probably par for the course, but what the hell do I know? The company taking over the contract extended me a worthwhile offer and I'm signed on and it should be a relatively seamless transition, at least for me. I fully expected last month to be squared away with the whole work thing, but this only came together last week.

That's great, but why should you care?

Since May I've been operating off of a laptop and a backup drive while pretty much living out of my suitcase and a few opened boxes. Now that I know I have a job when the "other guys" take over I can actually set up my new office and get back to this blog and a handful of other gaming projects that had to be sidelined. The joys of being able to use a real keyboard, my scanners, and even a proper desk!

Good times ahead if I have anything to say about it!
