Well, this blog has been totally neglected for the past few months while we've been on pins and needles waiting to see where we're moving to. :oP We thought we would be heading to the Austin, TX area, but now an even better opportunity has presented itself, and it looks like we'll be heading to a small town near Lake of the Ozarks, MO. My husband is a journeyman lineman, who worked as a troubleshooter for the power company here in Vegas for 14 yrs. He's the guy that determines why outages happen, and what is needed to get the power back on. ;o) This job would be a similar one, working for Ameren, the utility company that handles electrical service for MO and IL. This was the opportunity we were hoping for, so we just have to wait now till it all falls in to place!

It may be another few weeks, but then I'll be back to posting on a regular basis, and will try to make this blog worth reading! Hope you'll check back later next month. Take care everybody. :o)

Just curious if you've moved to Missouri yet? I just caught up with you on your blog. If you are living at Lake of the Ozarks, Im just 2 hours south on your way to branson! I hope your move was good and that you'll like it here in Missouri. My cousin finally moved back here from Las Vegas last December. Take Care! Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Hi Linda,

How are you? Sorry it's taken me a few days to reply. That seems to be my constant refrain lately! With all that's going on, I'm always so behind on everything.

We're still sitting here in limbo. Ron is supposed to be hearing back from the company today or tomorrow. :oP So not sure when they'll have us heading to MO, or which area we're actually going to end up in, but the Lake of the Ozarks area is the most likely.

Don't know if you remember, but I lived in St. Louis a loooooong time ago. My son was born in Florissant - can't believe it but that was 27 yrs. ago!

We're very ready for a change. Vegas has just gotten HUGE. Over 2 million residents in Clark County! Too much traffic, too much noise, too many people on top of each other. The idea of moving to a more rural area is very appealing at this point. I actually grew up with a dairy farm behind my house in upstate NY. ;o)

It was good to hear from you. Hope all is well with you and your family.

Take care.
