#28: Who Lands Where?

Dear Reader,

Andrew may have been lead astray. It was clear that I should move to Enlgand: it was an unstated prioirty for him to be close by to his parents, and his work schedule provided the opportunity to tour Europe, something we both longed for. Plus, I had encouraged him to purchase a house that, unbeknownst at the time, was more for a couple or British family...still smaller than anything owned in most US cities. It was just one more cultural difference to grasp in the world of the UK.

In the 4th quarter of 2008, the world-wide economy took a downturn. Andrew's company was bought out by a Japanese firm that could turn his world on a dime, and Hilton was under a globalization. Ironically, Andrew's company also has an office in Memphis where I reside. On the flip side, it would be a mistake to move to England and not be able to not find work and support us should he be laid off. We really needed to see how the economy played out.

In the meantime, Andrew and I plotted out a Christmas and New Year holiday together in England.
