boston mccoys ==> vegas mccoys
well peeps, the time has come. after five years of living in and loving boston we're headed out of here. we've wanted to move closer to family for a while now and suddenly, almost out of the clear blue sky, we've been given the opportunity - so we're outtie! darek was offered a position as an elvis impersonator in viva las vegas, so sin city here we come! (i'm kidding! he got a real job. true: that i heart elvis. false: that i'm married to an elvis impersonator!) the interview and job offer process went really quickly and today he put in two weeks notice which means we are on our two week count down to leaving new england. my heart is so torn as i really love it here but alas warm weather and affordable housing call. we felt a little worried about getting all the details taken care of in two short weeks but within 24 hours of accepting the job offer we've been able to sell our car and our apartment contract as well as start making arrangments for flights and shipping our stuff out west - so things are coming together and we are feeling like it's all meant to be. only a short 23 minutes hence the lovely bosnian woman who bought our car took the keys out of my hands, got in my car and drove away never to be seen again. i maybe wanted to shed a tear or two as i saw my beloved rodeo drive away and admit that i resisted running to get my video camera and filming the ordeal through the window blinds. it was a sad moment...those are bound to come as we say goodbye to everyone and all that we love here in boston but on a day like today - when i wake up to rainy, cold, grey skies i feel pretty good about this whole sitch. i've never been much of a desert girl but let me tell you how five winters in boston have been plenty to make a desert girl out of me! we'll keep you posted!
