Yes, that was the trip to Boston. No, we aren't moving. I'll be in Boston periodically, but I'll be working from home.

It was a surprisingly emotional and painful decision. Even with two months to think about it during the interview process, it was never a simple choice.

More soon. I need chocolate and a hug. Or a drink. Or something.

I sent this through my work account just now. It makes me angry that such things even have to be said at all.
