When It All Falls Apart

In my last Post, I mentioned that my back (among many things) hurt constantly. Well, my boss noticed that I was miserable and after we had a long talk, came to the conclusion that after 6 months that the job was not a good fit for me. I guess I just wasn't made for 60 hour weeks. He started looking for my replacement and in two weeks my replacement started. Luckily enough I was able to talk my way into staying on for a few extra weeks after that to make sure the hand-off went smoothly and there were no loose ends.

House in Lampasas, TX that we put an offer on. 
The timing with the job loss was horrible. It came right after we had put an offer in on house a few weeks prior to that and were looking to close in the following weeks. It wasn't just any regular old house either. It was a turn of the century house and required a rehab loan of sorts, so there was an extraordinary amount of hoops we had to jump through. We had nearly made it through the entire process. We were so close.

Instead of playing coy and going through with the deal, we decided to back out entirely. This was now the 3rd house deal that had failed on us in nearly as many months. 

With so much that had gone against us since moving to Texas, it seemed that maybe this state wasn't the right place for us. :(

We thought long and hard about what we wanted to do and decided that maybe we need to be closer to our family and that I needed to go back to school. Around this time, my ex-father-in-law called me and said that he had seen on Facebook that we were having a lot of tough luck and offered one of their rentals to us (at cost) if we ever needed it. 

We mulled it over for a few weeks trying to decide if we should stay or go and ultimately decided to take them up on their rental offer. We were leaving the great state of Texas. I also enrolled in full-time online school through EcoTech. Shortly after I start classes we'll be heading back to the great northwest!
