Dallas, Texas

I resigned my job in Portland, Oregon area yesterday to accept a position in Dallas, Texas. The part of the move that has to do with work is great. The part that has to do with leaving Grandpa Milo and Grandma Sarah behind in Oregon makes us sad. They are in good hands with my siblings and with the church with whom they meet so they will be fine. One of the main reasons for the move is to be closer to Grandma Conchita who is alone now, Grandpa Lauro having died over a year ago. We have a good real estate agent looking for a place for us close to the new job, but not so close that we could be characterized as big city dwellers. More about this as it moves forward.

  1. Okay, I’m confused. Just two blogposts ago you stated that you turned down a job offer in Dallas. What happened between Feb 19th and this post? Is this a different job offer that was more enticing?

  2. Hahaha! I was wondering whether someone might call me on this. They counter offered and so much other stuff came together it got me thinking that God has his hand in it so I pulled the trigger and said yes! Thanks for asking Ruthie.
