Gray couldn't put down his iPod because he was slaying dragons or something and that sounded pretty serious, so.
I left my heart at the ocean and my laptop in Indiana. But, now all is well. It's official. Jeff has been named the Publisher of The World newspaper in Coos Bay, Oregon.
Seriously. I am proud of him beyond words, and happy. So happy that it's numbed my brain from thinking about moving again, and thousands of miles away at that, and how I really felt at first.
We were out there last weekend by the beautiful Pacific and trees, so many trees, to home-shop and fall in love with the area. Now we're just getting all our houses in order... we close on the Indiana one this month, yay! and might just have our eye on a little lodge in the woods in Oregon where all you can see is trees, and more trees, and the water.
It's January 2013 and we are far from the lice incident of last winter, and of thinking we'd never move anywhere, ever. This has been such a wonderful surprise.
I take photos of my kids on the fourth of every month. Four for four. (Here's January 2011 and 2012.)
