Another year, another move. Fortunately, this time it’s because I have a permanent job. I started work at Unisys last month as an Oracle DBA. Besides selling mainframes and development software, Unisys has a large outsourcing business as well. We handle IT services for quite a few large companies, and most of the hardware is hosted in the Eagan, MN data center.
We’re in the process of purchasing a house in Apple Valley, just 15 minutes south of Unisys. It will be nice to live close to work again! No more hour+ commutes. I’m particularly excited about this house’s enormous back yard. There’s lots of room for a garden and for the kids to run and play, and there’s a steep hill in the back that will be great for sledding in the winter. The house itself needs just about every room repainted, but otherwise is in fairly decent shape. And, it has a hot tub! Rachel’s particularly excited to finally have a place of our own. With a permanent job and a permanent home, we feel that God is finally establishing us here in MN, over a year after we moved here. That’s something we’ve been praying for earnestly, so it’s good to see those prayers finally answered!
