so my husband and i just found out that our department at work is 'downsizing'....which basically means that we'll be out of work in may. this wasn't too much of a shock, and we were prepared for it, but it's still not too nice to hear. i love my job, and i adore the people i work with. but if there's one good thing about it, it's that this gives us the chance to get the heck outta dallas. now, for those of you who are from texas and think it's God's great gift to the USA, i'm sorry. but after i had a few things to think about what this layoff means to me, i was actually pretty excited to get out of the state. dallas really has beeen the worst place i've ever lived in my life. the city is dirty, and for about 9 months out of the year i feel like i'm trying to cope with living in the oven. and that oven is baking all the dirt and smog and SMELL all around me and into me. you never want to go outside. even if you have a pool, it gets so warm around july that it's like swimming in old bathwater. and i miss snow. good heavens, how i miss snow!!!
so, i will miss the job. and i will miss the people so much. but texas....so long. i don't care if i never see you again!
