“We’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto”

…nor will we be. It turned out that they couldn’t offer enough of a raise to make it worth leaving a town we enjoy, a house I enjoy, family nearby, etc., etc. It’s also extremely unlikely our house, with all it’s 100 year old charm, would sell anytime soon. That means we would have 2 mortgages — or more likely, a mortgage & rent.

Still, it was a fun trip, albeit short & busy. Kansas City looked to have a lot of neat things to do, but we would have been in a suburban area — and I was a bit depressed to see all the apartment/townhouse/condo “communities.” And no grocery stores other than Super Target & Super Walmart — what’s up with that?

So we’re here to stay — at least for the foreseeable future, and the only Kansas references you’ll be seeing will be in our Halloween costumes!

**I’ll tell you all about CookieA’s class soon — but it was fun!**

  1. Well… I’m glad your still here 🙂 Bet your family is too. It would have been hard leaving when you are so close to family.

    Looking forward to hearing about CookieA.

    I got to get ready and head out to the Fall Fest thingy at Apple Valley today – maybe I’ll see you there?
