An interesting weekend

It all started with how our Friday ended. We have some big news for people....Are you ready for this....Ian is being relocated to Oklahoma City for work. They are opening a new Dell facility there and Ian put in his name to be considered for the relocation. He finally received an email Friday afternoon from the manager that will become his manager, addressing his team. It only had two other dell employee's names on it so we are excited that Ian is one of the elite three as we call it to get to go. The manager was basically letting them know, thank you for your patience in finding out the logistics of the move, such as money, time off to do the move, the dates they want us there by, etc. It is taking HR a little longer than expected to figure out something. We are thinking it has to do with how much time they are going to be given to find a place and for the move itself without having to take any time from their personal stash of vacation time. So as soon as we get the date they want us their by, we will be planning a trip to Oklahoma city to scout out a place to live. For those that live there already, if you are out an about, and you happen to see a home for rent, if you don't mind taking down the phone number for us we would appreciate it. We would love to find a home/town home/condo for rent no higher than $750 a month. So if you have any inside information, just send it our way via email, or however.

In other news, we went cruise ware shopping and so many places still have no shorts, or men's swim suits out yet. We decided we are just going to wait until the weekend before we cruise to try again. We are pretty confident with waiting until later in Feb we will be able to better find stuff. We did buy a DC17 Dyson Animal vac though and I love that thing already. I could not believe the amount of stuff it pulled up from our carpets. Wow is all I have to say about that. It was a little pricey but we figured if we take good care of it, we should have it for a lot longer than any other vac and it will pay for itself because we won't be having to constantly replace it. That is all our news for now. Stay tuned because I'm sure in the next couple of months, things will be getting very interesting around here.

Ok, so I tried it before and it did not post. Grrrrr. Wow, moving here, that is way cool. I will keep an eye out in the Moore area as well as the SW OKC area. If we can get you into one of these areas we might even get your parents here more often. LOL

Rashell,

Thanks! As soon as we have an exact date we will let you know. The major hold up is the higher ups are still sorting out who is getting what lvl of package they put together, and how much time they will get for all of this, etc... I am very excited to be closer to all of ya'll and being able to do things on a regular basis.

Hugs,
Tammy
