Like Pulling Teeth (for Sarah)

My brain (Rob) has devolved rapidly since school ended last week. It's so flipping hard to think of something inteligent to post. All I want to do is lie in bed, catch up on current events, attend happy hour at McCormicks with Rachel, and watch Grey's Anatomy (also with Rachel). But oh, Sarah keeps wanting to know what's going on in our lives. Sarah Lawrence (no relation to the university, as far as I know) is one of the best people in America. So here, Sarah, is an update: I'm driving to Oregon on May 17. Oil has been changed, tires have been rotated - I'm ready for the 3 day trek. I start work at Intel the 22nd and expect 60-70 hour weeks.

Busy season is over for Rachel - she's now working on a hospital benefits plan. During the evenings she's been studying for part 2 of the CPA exam. A year ago I had no idea how intense the CPA was - it's like an MBA degree in a single test. No wonder they split it into 4 separate tests.

We both try to keep this blog totally non-political, but we love politics so much, it's sometimes very hard. Rachel has some really great thoughts about the role of females in church and business. She's right on - it's good stuff. But who knows if she'll ever write about such a hot topic. Me - well, every day I supress the urge to attack urban sprawl. The fundamental problems and solutions are so obvious to me, but for some crazy reason, people (including my own mother) disagree :-)

Wait, wait, wait...so, you're coming back to Oregon later this month? Moving back or just a visit?!

I say that as if I'm still in Oregon (which, of course, I am not), but I will be in Washington for a few weeks and in Portland on June 8-12.

Who knows if we'll actually get to hook up, but it will be cool to know that we're in the same town again...if only for a day or two... =)
