My husband came home yesterday from work and dropped a bombshell on me. He told me that near the end of his workday his boss called him into his office and made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. To make a long story short he was offered the position of Vice President of Sales for his company. The bombshell part of it is that the job is located in Texas which means we have to move there.
The good thing is that my own job allows me to work from home so it doesn’t really matter where I live. We also don’t have kids yet so it isn’t like we are uprooting any of our children from their friends or school. The somewhat bad news is that we know absolutely nobody there nor do we have a home lined up. I have been looking at homes and have seen a few nice ones but nothing is official yet. Like I said I just got this news last night so it has been a whirlwind 24 hours for both of us. The other good thing is we do have some time. We don’t have to move there until the beginning of September. That should give us enough time to get all of our ducks in a row so to speak.
One thing that I’m sure we both will have to get used to is the heat. It is hot here but nothing like it is there. I remember reading a story about last year’s summer where it said Texas had like two weeks straight of 100 degrees or more. That is just crazy but we’ll adjust. I told him that our new house will definitely have to have a pool and he agreed.
I will of course miss my friends and family but this is a great opportunity for us. I’m not going to say how much more he is going to be making but it is a figure where neither of us had to think twice about the decision. I’m also hoping that in time he can relocate back to where he works now in an even higher position. He said that is a possibility but first he has to succeed down there. I don’t think that will be a problem for him as he is great at what he does. That should be evident seeing as how they offered him the position in the first place.
