Cross Your Fingers and Toes!
We had a grand time with Cara and Tony. Those two clowns. Still smoking (boo) Still joined at the hip (yay) We just missed the giant snowstorm that dumped over a foot of snow on Denver. By the time we got there, the streets were plowed and all was pretty much back to normal. You gotta love a city that tickets an 82 year old lady for not shoveling her sidewalks.
We did a bit of touristy stuff: walked up and down the 16th Street Mall. Visited the Tattered Cover Bookstore. Spent a day at the casino (this WAS a trip with my gambling children) and made ourselves ill with a "free" meal at the casino buffet. Bought a t-shirt at Rockmount Western Wear. Found a good yarn store. Bought Pia a Denver Starbucks cup (thanks for keeping the homefront safe and taking care of Lulu, Peeps!) Stopped in at REI (where our memberships were still good even though none of us had set foot in REI in years)
Monday morning, Cara interviewed for a management position in Denver, the actual reason for this trip. We were all rooting for her, as we had all fallen totally in love with the Mile High City and were ready to move. The interview went very well, as expected (who wouldn't want to have Car-parts as their boss?)
In fact, she was offered a job in PORTLAND, OREGON!!!!!!!! BRING EM HOME 2.0 IS PRACTICALLY IN THE BAG FOLKS! Color me over the moon. My kids would all be in the same time zone!!!!!!! She's just waiting to hear what kind of moving and payment package they will offer then we will know for sure.
I'm dying. Dying for them to give her whatever she wants to get her on the west coast. And Pooh Bear says this is the ONLY city he would drop everything and move to immediately so that's even better. Fred and Irene in the house! YAYYAYYAY!!!
