Big changes afoot - maybe

Okay, so ya know how The Prince and I visited Texas this summer? Well, this is the second time we've visited there in recent years, and we always leave very sad. Not only because we love our TX friends, but because we really love TX.

Property values here in So Cal are dropping, and may drop a lot more in the next year. Combine that with the fact that our lifestyle here is rapidly going down the tubes, and you have a family ripe for change.

We are seriously looking into moving to TX, and putting our house on the market very soon. GH actually spoke with a realtor this morning! House sales are way down in our area (though we live in a very desirable city) , so if this is meant to be, God will be providing the right buyer. We have not listed the house yet, nor are we decided. We are however, talking about it constantly.

The biggest drawback is leaving my parents. There is a possibility that my in-laws would follow us...but not my folks. My mom is kinda freaking out about us leaving, and it's freaking me out. I have told GH that if we move to TX, we will be keeping a fund just for traveling, and get a frequent flyer credit card. He agrees with me, so I anticipate that we would become big travelers.

That's the latest. Hopefully I'll update sooner rather than later.

Hey girl,

I just know you're CV who wrote me a letter about this decision to move. I haven't responded because I've been busy, but I AM praying for this decision. So property values are going down? Did you grow up in TX or CA? How does property value affect you unless you move? Just curious. We live an hour from my husband's job, but it would cost us more to move, even to a smaller place, than it would to stay here. That's why I ask! If you don't want to get that personal, no biggie! I'm still praying! And thanks for praying for me with my son. I've seen some improvement in his attitude lately.
