Item: We told the in-laws about the potential move. Mom was very encouraging. She reminded us she came to the US with nothing and she 'has everything' now. They left this morning.
Item: I worked on my resume all day.
Item: My boss is already telling friends and clients I’m leaving.
Item: I’m glad I went to a tech friendly, large school for my Masters (RIT) since I might need a network to call. I love my quirky little undergrad school, but our mere 30 years worth of grads puts a serious damper on networking capability.
Item: Jrex's advisor is in Palo Alto as I write. I’m so mad at him. He’s screwed my husband by making him beat a dead research horse for two years ('surely all those fabulous results by your sloppy predecessor MUST be valid!') but now he gets to go and sit pretty while the rest of us scramble. I wish I could trust him to be there advocating for all his peons but I'm doubtful.
Item: Anyone know any fabulous design firms in the Palo Alto area I should contact? Know anyone at Adobe?
Item: Despite all the seeming probability, this whole deal could still crumble. Right? Right?!
