You got to love that

Ok I don't have much time or patience to write too much about this. Let's start with the bad news:

We were notified yesterday that our dogs have been howling while we were gone. They gave a list of dates that this was an issue for the last 3 weeks. Today was the first we heard about it. We have 14 days to "fix" the problem or move out. I talked to the management and we all decided that a lease buyout would be best. We will have the honor of paying an additional months rent in exchange for breaking our 12 month lease just after 1 month. Sweet. So we are going to move, again second time in about 40 days. We now understand we must have a house with a backyard. The crappy part is we got to the point where, we leave and they are quiet; we come back and they are quiet; so we had no idea they were howling. So the search is on. This means we have to leave this posh neighborhood in exchange for something a little quieter across the river. This is how it goes. I have been through a lot of freak outs over this. I think I am coming down though....

Good news:
Melissa got a teaching job!!!! Melissa is my superstar and has proven herself to be a stronger willed person in the face of stress than me. She has been my rock holding everything together. I am the luckiest man on the Earth to have found her, and for her to stick around with me. Melissa will be teaching at a 1 year old charter school. Meaning the school is only 1 year old. So it will be a more advanced modern learning/teaching environment. And they use that year-round schedule you have heard about.

So here's to moving. It's something I am getting a lot of skill in. If you have any words of encouragement or own any property in Portland, please share?

All I've got to say is that from the looks of your pics and from the weather reports that I'm looking out the move is worth whatever stressors it brings. It's growing pains man, but they'll subside and you'll be alright and better off for it...same thing coulda happened in an apt in okc. See you soon. I'm flying out this Sunday.
