Old News

I'm sure that everyone who reads this blog has already heard about Taylor's new job...Professor of Materials  Science & Engineering at the University of Utah! This was his "dream" job (and realistically the only option for us ever living in Utah again since the U is the only school with a MSE department). It's quite remarkable that there was an opening, let alone right now when he was ready to be on the job market. Everyone else in the department is tenured and won't be going anywhere anytime soon. Thank goodness for professors who look at child porn on the airplane, right? So wrong. That is where the opening comes from. We are both looking forward to so many things, trying to overlook the things we are not as excited about, and hoping we will be satisfied and happy there. And getting tenure, that's kind of important. Only time will tell.

I have this baby coming in July...
Ta da! More old news, since I neglected to ever actually mention it on the blog (but you all knew anyways, right?). And we will also be moving in July. SO...that will be exciting. All things considered, we need to have this baby here in Santa Barbara and then move about the end of the month. Here's to hoping she comes when she's due (the 10th) so I will have a couple of weeks to lay low and enjoy her. She also can't come early because Taylor will be gone for 2 weeks until the 5th. I have a feeling my summer is going to disappear in a flash. All I will remember is cardboard boxes and labor pains. 


  1. Congrats!! I didnt know you were expecting! So excited for that and that you are moving back. We will have to get together

  2. That is the first, and I'm certain the last, time I have ever snorted out loud with laughter when I read the words "child porn." So awful, and yet I am so happy for your family. Congratulations to both of you!

  3. Thanx for sharing such great information...........
