As some of you already know, my wife has to permanently return to Oregon to care for her ailing father and her disabled brother. She and our sons are moving out there on June 7th.

I'm doing my best to come with them, but since I have a good job here in Ohio, we hate to give it up without having stable work out there. Well, a great position has (finally) come up, and the company is flying me out on Thursday at 9am for a final interview. Apparently, it is only down to me and another candidate. Crossing the fingers & praying that this happens, as it would truly be a huge blessing for our family for a number of reasons (not just financial). I'd sure appreciate the kind thoughts and prayers for this interview!

Oh...and its supposed to be "mostly sunny and delightful" (accuweather) on Thursday in Portland. A sign?

Thanks to those who have already given advice on the area. I've lived in Ohio my entire life - a little eager and a little nervous about this move!

Thanks for the great wishes. Returned to Ohio last night after a great interview.

I'll find out this coming week if I got the job or not. I sure hope so, because my wife/kids are moving June 7th, and I sure hope to follow quickly.
