can you believe that these girls had energy after flying all day from KC to the Bay Area? check out addie's outfit...she wanted to wear tights and a shirt, but nothing else (except the tap shoes!) she's a riot!

girls come home tomorrow

Terri, Addie, and Inara fly home tomorrow from KC. They spent today driving around the greater KC area checking out potential areas where we may live. Tomorrow after 2 plane rides, they will arrive in San Jose where I will pick them up. It has been really rough to be away from them for these past 5 days.

It did give me a chance today to finish up a lot of last work on the house. Still a few more things to do, but it's all coming together finally. I think by the end of next weekend, this house will be all put back together and finished. It's still hard for me to imagine leaving this house and I know it's stupid to be that attached to a house. I think it's mainly because this is the home we have raised Addie in these past 3 and a half years, and also probably all the work I've done on this home the past 6 years. I have been looking back thru pictures of all the projects I've done to this home, and I'll admit it makes me wonder whether or not that time I spent on this house was worth it.

To those of you curious, job prospects in KC are going slow. I have applied for a number of jobs in KC, but really just 2 that I think are good fits for me. I also applied for a position in St Louis that was just too good of an opportunity not to throw my hat in the ring. But of those 3 positions, I havne't heard anything positive yet.
