Big changes--updated!

I didn't mention it before, but one of the things we did while we were in CA was meet with the partners of a very large law firm that had been trying to recruit my husband for a long time.

Well, they just called and made him the proverbial offer you can't refuse. He accepted the job, which will be starting on June 15th. A week after the kids get out of school.

So rather than getting my house in order for us to enjoy, I'm getting it ready to put it on the market. Like yesterday.

And so I've spent all morning on the phone with real estate agents.

It's all pretty mind-boggling.

But how can I give up this?

Or this?

When it's snowing outside even as I write?

I mean, let's put this in perspective. How hard can it be to move across country when it means I'll never have to shovel snow again as long as I live?

APRIL FOOL!!! she shouted like the dolt she is.


  1. Do it! I look at the photos you Northern hemisphere people post, and I'm aghast at all of the work that you have to do just to get out of your houses in winter. Life's too short. (Or it would be for me. I think I'd kill myself if I had to shovel snow. I imagine it would be heavy. And rather chilly.)

  2. OH MY GOD!

    Wow! BIG changes! I'm happy for you!

    (How is Joke taking the news?)

  3. I'm small, I don't eat much, can I come?

  4. Wow! That is a huge new adventure.

    I don't know what part of LA you'll be coming to, but I LOVE it here in Pasadena. I'd be honored to welcome you to the LA area and if you need anything... don't hesitate!

  5. Happy April 1st.

    I less than three you.

  6. Poppy,

    I just hope this is a cruel April's Fools' joke.


  7. You're mean - second time someone has "gotten" me today. Gullible is my middle name.

  8. & here I was all happy and stuff!

  9. Damn good thing. I haven't had a chance to meet you in the great white midwest yet.

  10. I thought about telling everyone I was pregnant yesterday. But then I knew someone would just have to remember I got spayed a few years ago. I am glad it was an April Fool's... and I know you are too, lol.

  11. Ha! Good one!

    I was excited that you might be in my neck-of-the-woods, but I am just so relieved that you don't have to sell your house and move! Phew!

  12. I fell for that like a sack of cement. You are GOOD.

  13. OK, it's April 3rd and I'm still an April Fool.

    My kids are so ashamed of me.
