Well, I'm back in the US. I got back on the 15th, but have been too busy to blog. Life has just been so busy lately. I never mentioned that I got a promotion a couple of months ago. So now I'm the Quality Assurance Manager. I'm happy about it, but its been a hell of a chance. My scope of work is much larger now, and I have a lot of direct reports to manage. Hopefully, things will settle down. It's been 60 hour work weeks since I got the promotion and I feel like I'm drowning. Ugh. Anyway, it's good to be back. Germany was amazing and I'm so thankful that I got the opportunity to go and experience another great part of Europe. I made a friend over there, that I'm sure will come visit this spring/summer. I have a lot of photos to process from my trip, namely my Alpine photos I took on the free weekend I had over there. There's just no time these days! Here it is, Christmas Eve already!
