Our first week in Peoria is almost up and things are going well. A lot has been unpacked and besides not having a bed at the moment our apartment is starting to feel like home.

We still haven’t been out in the city much. We don’t know our way around the roads or stores yet and believe it or not we haven’t seen any of the rest of the Peoria team who’s already here yet! There will be a team meeting next week where we’ll remedy that, though.

Working from home has been a delight. It’s nice to see Carrie more and to not have to worry about packing a lunch. I can even play video games on my lunch break!

All that aside, I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet that we’re actually moved out of Champaign and this isn’t just temporary. It doesn’t seem real that all our friends and family are nearly two hours away! We’re definitely open to visitors if any of our friends want to help make that transition smoother!
