Life is great!

We have finally settled in. The new little dog, Loki, is finally potty-trained and is an amazing dog. I've finally gotten used to the commute, the hours, everything. Finally felt up to having poker night this Saturday and had nine adults and Josh's baby over for a great time. Most of the stuff from Madrid has been unpacked and incorporated into the house thanks to my beautiful wife. All the patio and porch furniture is down cellar and the lawn mowed a final time before the snow flew.

Life is good.

Soon, I might even be able to do some real blog posts.


  1. Pal, we're just happy you're home.

  2. So, since you are now back in the US, settled in and doing well, is there any chance we will see more MTG blogs from you? I'm hoping so, because I always found your writings to be insightful and fun.

  3. Sweet! Looking forward to (hopefully) regular posts (also hopefully) soon.

  4. I was clearing out my old gmails and found yours from when you got married. Went to the blog and found you're back in Vermont! Wow!

    Welcome back.

  5. Random question: any plans for playing the Boston area PTQs?

    Hi Jamie,

    I spent the summer of 2011 in Madrid, and I'm planning on moving to Spain in 2012. A friend of mine just bought me a copy of your book for Christmas. My heart resonated with many of the things you said you loved about Spain. Thanks for sharing your story.
    Oh, I experienced a weird coincidence while reading your book. In one of the early chapters you describe a party in Madrid, and you list some of the names of the people there, including a woman named Candy. After seeing her name, I paused for a minute. Last year I bought a book about moving to Spain that was written by an American woman named Candy. As it turns out, my book is written by your friend! I could not believe it when I read about her wedding in your book. What a coincidence!

    Anyway, I wish you and Wendy the best of luck in your new adventure in Vermont.
