And Now For Something Completely Different



It's official. Doug has accepted a job offer in Galveston, TX and we're moving in June after school is out (so far, that's June 12th if there are no more snow days). We won't live right in Galveston, but we'll probably be 25-45 minutes away or so. We're hoping to visit the third week of April (the kids' Spring Break) to buy a house. Now to figure out how to sell ours! Good times.

And yes, the above picture was taken after Ike went through. That's a bit of roof.

You could probably low-ball them on that house in the picture...

My brother lives in Houston! How far is the Richmond/Rosenberg area from where you need to be? A childhood friend of mine moved there and it was rather nice. And there's Katy, Conroe...don't know exactly where...Someone from Woodsboro clicks on my site regularly. Don't live on the island, though. Just don't.

SkyDad, LOL!! Hopefully we'd get enough money from the sale of our purple house to afford that gem.

LSM, I have no idea where any of those places are...yet! We're looking at Clear Lake, League City, Friendswood...that general area. We're definitely not going to live right on the island. No. Way.

Yes, Triana? Are you free?! Eeee!! Don't tease me!!

Um, house party will be in order, I see.

Give me dates when you're going to be here and I'll do my best! Maybe I could sneak off a day or two? Work is INSANE IN THE MEMBRANE, so I can't make solid promises. But I'd love to at least come give everyone a hug!

Well, the plan is April 18-26 (no tickets yet or anything). We're going to be wild with the house hunting and the school visiting, but damn, that is a long time. If work is not too insane in the membrane maybe we can get together for a day or two?

Guess. what. There is a freaking LUSH in Friendswood (one of the places we're looking at). Even if we didn't live exactly there, it is still hella close.

Central Market and LUSH.

Going to need employment.

*writes down the dates*

Ok, will look at the work schedule and see what I can do! Like I said if nothing else I'd love to come give you guys a hug and say hi, but I know you guys will be extremely busybusybusy so I won't get in the way. Besides, I need to save time off for coming this summer!

LUSH! Oh man! I'm going to be spending some time at your house!
