Hello all,

Here's the deal.

As I mentioned before, Laura got accepted to Purdue University in Indiana. Full scholarship and such.
She was also accepted to Portland State University here in...........Portland. So a big piece of the puzzle was my job. How could we move and still maintain our income if my job was gone.
With this in mind I have been hustling on the freelance front and have been working some large jobs. At the same time working up a proposal for Nike to let me work remotely from Indiana. I pitched it as an in depth look at the baseball consumer, sport, and market enviroment of middle America. Made the presentation last week Thursday........here is the clincher........I told them I needed to know by Monday. I was sure I had sunk the ship by having such a short turn around time.

The end of day monday came........it was 4:55 I had heard nothing. I went to the office of my Bosses boss but he was not there. I waited around.....5:10 still no one. I figured that was the way it went around here. It is easy to get lost in the shuffle. I was heading back up the stairs when I heard someone come in the bottom floor door. Feet on the steps....Looked over the railing and sure enough here comes the boss man himself. He sees me and his face looks tired. My heart sank.

He asks me as he exhales if I have a minute. Another bad sign.

I step in his office and he starts to tell me how he has gone over it with his boss and after thinking about it and looking at all that it entails

They are willing to try it out!

So all in all I get to keep my job and live in Indiana for the next three years while Laura gets her Masters.

Pretty fuckin sweet deal.
