Happy belated Wally Wednesday! The fact that I can't even get a short post up once a week is a testament to how busy I've been. Things are about to get a whole lot busier. Charles got a call Friday from Dallas Fort Worth airport (he's an air traffic controller) and got a huge job offer. So...we're moving to Dallas in April! I never thought I'd live in Texas. I don't necessarily WANT to live in Texas, but I do want to stay with Charles so I know we'll be happy wherever we go. We hope to only spend 4-5 years there, then try to get him in at Portland or Sea-Tac. It's crazy, I know. We haven't known each other that long, but I know we'll be fine.

The most overwhelming thing is getting out of Hollywood. I've been wanting to leave but didn't expect to do it this quickly. I already have some minor freelance stuff lined up, and who knows if I can find work there. Honestly, with the cost of living and Charles' salary, we will be fine in Dallas. We've already discussed me going back to school to get a degree to teach, which was my original plan when I went to college out of high school. Either way, it will be an adventure.

The blog will likely be black for a couple of months, but look forward to many posts in the future where I will be laughing at my neighbors, their big hair, and their pickup trucks. Wally is excited for the move - it means a big yard, and hopefully, a pool! Here he is from earlier in the week when we took all the dogs to the park:

Wow, I'm totally surprised but also happy for you. Yeah, the cost of living is extremely low there. You'd be fine if you sold your condo here and lived there for a year!

If you're looking for suburbia, anywhere from Coppell to Las Colinas is nice and close to DFW. If you want historic and character in a home, the University area near SMU totally rocks.

I'll miss Wally Wednesdays while you're dark. You should throw up a new pic of Gracie b4 too long, too, just to tide us over.

Congrats, Tiffany!

Congratulations on what seems to be a great move for all involved!

I look forward to hearing your take on living in Texas. I couldn't do it myself. I would spend most of the year trying not to faint from the heat.

This is HUGE! And I'm happy for you. We get one shot at this 'ole life. I say TAKE THE PLUNGE!! Things have a way of working out Tiff when we take those leaps of faith. It's a good thing... and it gives me an excuse to come to Dallas / FW where I've never been before. Any time line?

I hope you two crazy kids start 2010 in a beautiful, happy home, with solid careers and a new baby on the way...maybe?
