We just got back from Nebraska as you may know and I am happy to say that we are all set to move to Scottsbluff, NE at the end of this month. We drove from Poughkeepsie (New York), to Scottsbluff in order to find a place to live, see what the area was like, and also visit the school where I got my new job. From what I saw I was pretty impressed with both the school district and the area and we manged to find a nice townhouse in the north end of Scottsbluff for less than half the rent we are paying in New York. The big plus is that it has a swimming pool and seems to be in a very nice area. I must admit that I am very excited to be moving. I won’t miss Pougkeepsie at all.
The only things that sucked about the trip was that on the way there Irene fell asleep at the wheel while driving and, although she woke up and no damage or injuries occurred, I think from now on we need to spend a night in a hotel. It will cost money but its much better than being killed or injured. The other bad thing that occurred was that on the way back the windshield of our car got a crack in it on the driver’s side. Right now, it is about 6 inches across and not a big deal but the windshield will have to be replaced at some point. We have decided that we will wait until we have moved to get it sorted out.
