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.
