How the Saga Ends....

Last Friday, Derick called new company and accepted their offer.


Today, he called new company and told them he changed his mind.


WHAT?


Gee, thanks for dragging me on this dizzying ride for the past six weeks. Wait until I tell everyone we are moving and then change your mind.


Crap.


I was really looking forward to leaving Texas. I wanted to be able to drive to my mother's on a whim. I wanted White Castle and Skyline Chili. I wanted winter. Yet, here I stay another year, or five, fighting the humidity, mosquitoes, and traffic. We are not Texans. We don't fit in here and I am tired of trying. We have lived here seven years and still don't know the neighbors. We are alone here with no support, no back up, no help in a crisis. We shouldn't have to live like this. Life is more than work and jobs and who has the most money at the end. I thought my husband understood that, but apparently not enough. I am mad.





You mean we aren't going to see snow this year????

OneHung is sorry to hear this. Maybe tomorrow Derick will call them and accept their offer again.

Oh, Andria. I'm sorry. I do know what it's like to live in a place you don't belong, I was so happy to get back to Memphis. Maybe something even better will come along...

Andria, I'm sorry too. I also understand how it is to be somewhere you don't belong...I lived in Northern Minnesota in a smallish town for a while and it was so cliquey. Not near as far away as you are to your family, but it was still really tough.

Your boys are still adorable. Hey, want me to mail you some snow?

What happened? Sorry it didn't work out...

Well, your sister is going to close now right? I know how hard it is having no family nearby.

Shane said...

Bummer! Any chance he'll change his mind again??

I would be mad too for him chaging his mind like that and not even talking to you about it first! It would have been so nice to be closer to family; I'm sorry that won't happen now. Men just don't get it sometimes!
