Quick update.

F and I went to FL Thursday and came home Friday. Total jackass in line at the Dollar rental car counter - they should have told him to take a hike. Those people can never be placated and it's pointless to try. Drove around a lot, got lost repeatedly (which is useful for ultimately finding your way around and knowing where stuff is) but had maps. Looked at 6 houses for rent, picked one. Nice-looking neighborhood, house OK; orange tree, bird-of-paradise tree, palm tree in yard. Applications put in. Met new boss for lunch at Mexican restaurant, had a nice time. Speeding ticket on the way back to the airport.

Now we are packing and planning to make the trek on Friday. Busy as hell. I'll update more when things get settled.

Did you make an offer on a house?

Laura(southernxyl) said...

No, we are going to sign a year's lease on this one and rent while we make sure we want to stay in the area.

Also, just as when you get married you marry your spouse's family, when you buy a house you're buying the whole neighborhood. We will want to take our time and decide which neighborhoods we'd be happy in before we look at houses to buy.

How's packing going?

Me miss you. Sniff...sniff!

Hope the new job is going GREAT! And that you guys are settling in well!
