For some crazy reason, I had myself all convinced that when Russell finally earned his MBA, there would be new jobs lined up for him. I suppose I really knew that wouldn't be the case, but I was hoping. Now that it's here, I'm trying to be patient. I'm SOO thankful for the job he HAS, and I don't want to come across like I'm not, but I want, so badly, to be settled before the new school year, because it's hard to move during the year. I always said that I wanted to be moved, if we were moving, and settled before my oldest child turned 12. Well, Chandler will be 12 in about two weeks, so I guess that's that. ☺
I am really hoping something comes up for us in Arizona. As I've been thinking about what I want, and where I want to raise my family, I just lean more and more toward Arizona. There were so many things I loved about living there. Sure, it's hot, but seriously. Ok, let me talk about that for a second...
Let's take today:
Dallas, TX: High-98; current humidity-59%
Phoenix, AZ: High-105; current humidity-20%
Now, I ask you, is that really any worse? I don't think so. Now, it will get hotter in the next few months, but still, DRY. I'm here to tell you, there IS a difference.
So, the heat really isn't an issue to me. There are many wonderful things about that area, and I just feel like my family would do well there.
Now we just need a job...
