Here we go again…

Quick update for those of you who haven’t been paying attention. Kristen and Jordan moved to the Northern Illinois area in mid-May. Kristen had an opportunity with her company that provided some new challenges, so we packed our bags and headed to beautiful Waukegan, IL. Everything has gone fairly smoothly so far: we made it here, we were able to sell our house in C-bus, J found a job, Beezer only ran away a few times, etc, etc…

Fast forward to present day.

Another quick update. Kristen and Jordan are moving to Southern California. Greater San Diego to be a bit more precise. We don’t mess around when it comes to not settling anywhere.

Another opportunity for Kristen, and how do you say no to San Diego? So we’re on the road again. It looks like we’ll be headed out around the Thanksgiving time frame. We’ll likely head back to OH-IO for a few days, then drive cross-country with Beezer in the back seat. We’ll certainly miss our Eastern and Central time zone friends and family, but hopefully the 370 days* of sunshine every year will help drown some of our sorrows.

UPDATE: I tried to quit my job, but wasn’t allowed. That actually works out really well for us. We will now be packin’ two incomes as we move to So. Cal.; we might be able to afford rent in a medium-sized storage unit. If we both get promotions and raises we’ll be able to upgrade to an apartment! So I’ll be working from home while Kristen goes to work every day.

*Editor’s Note: The exact number of days of sunshine cannot be known because Wikipedia does not have a “days of sunshine in San Diego every yearentry. I looked.

  1. That is a fun drive…make sure to stop in Vegas and try to double your net worth. That means cash out everything before leaving the Midwest and throw a sack full of money in the back with the dog!

  2. Glad to see my plan to get everyone out West is slowly but surely coming to fruition.

    I wouldn’t leave the money bag in the back with Beezer, he’s likely to chew 1/2 before you get to Vegas. Casinos don’t take soggy or damaged bills – I checked.
