Moving to Microsoft/Seattle: Part 2 - Getting there
So, after several years, I got the job. The problem with getting "the job", is, well, "Oh ****, I got the job" I'm now faced with a couple of interesting issues.
1) I have to get to the job. For me and my family, that is clear across the country from Virginia Beach, VA to Redmond, WA. I can't go much further without leaving the country.
2) I have to do the job. Ok, that shouldn't be a problem. :)
3) I need a new life goal. Well, I don't need to worry about that yet, first I have to get there..
6/1: I was going to talk about the whole trip, but I'll just post a few comments:
After 8.5 years in a house, I've got way more stuff than I thought.
Getting three dogs to Seattle has been a chore. We ended up going to Regean International to make it a non-stop flight, so a four hour drive starting at midnight, then an 8 am flight from the east coast to the west coast made for a very long day.
It's expensive here!
Our house in Virginia sold in 1 day, so it was one less thing to worry about.
I start at the NEO tomorrow, so we'll go from there.
