Moving Update

No, we didn't sell our condo yet. :(

But JD really wants us to come. And we're really ready to go. *And* they offered us a housing allowance for 6 months or until we sell our condo, whichever comes first.

So we are off to Texas in 3 weeks. I found a 3-bedroom rental (Dave wants an office, and Texas rentals are, oh, 1/8 the price of NYC rentals) and we move in on July 26th.

It all feels a bit surreal. The last time I moved (not counting our move from NYC to NJ, and not counting moves that involved school) was 1993. And as we are getting movers and don't need to pack, life is mostly continuing as normal. I suppose that will change as we get closer to moving day, but for now, we're getting ready to enjoy our last 4th of July in New York!

Super Duper!! Hoorraayyy!! That's great news. And a housing allowance. SWEET. I'm totally jealous of the movers doing all the work. I hate packing just for that reason. Where's the rental?? Give us a call or email.

I'm happy for you guys, but I'm worried I won't see you as often. I'm sad you're leaving NJ but happy for you to be where you want to be.

Jessica-
good luck with the big move! I heard through the grapevine that you guys were moving to TX. I've heard great things about TX. I miss all you guys there. Thanks for always being so nice and for offering to keep Ashton for me when having the baby. Also, I LOVE the Janie and Jack outfit you gave her for the shower. She has worn it lots and it is adorable. So, anyway- take care!
