We're MOVING!!! (April Fools!!)


Wow! This is all so sudden but we are really excited to let everyone know our news! Dave was offered a job as a software securities developer with a company called Iron Mountain in Boston. He has an old co-worker who was a great friend of his that moved out their two years ago for a job. He's been hounding Dave ever since to move out there and take a position with his company. He made Dave an offer we just couldn't refuse. SMUD is great and stable, but he'll never make $300,000 a year there. We are just so excited. We've even found a beautiful older home near his friend Tom that we're going to make an offer on. (pic above) It's amazing all of this is falling into place. Just last week a family came by to view our home (which we thought was off the market) and they made a great offer!!

We will really miss our family and friends here, but oppurtunities like this don't come very often. We have so much in store for us, so much to look forward to! Stay tuned for more details later.
(BTW- April Fools! Gotcha!)

Oh my gosh, I'm with Tiffany...this has to be an april fools joke! NOOOOOO, don't leave!!!

Ok, I'm done throwing my fit now! How awesome is that!?? BOSTON...I would be soooo excited I seriously would not be able to see strait!! And that house is seriously to die for!!!! Congrats and good luck, keep me posted!! And we have family in Dudley (about 1-2 hrs away) so if we go out there we will hunt you down and visit! (Look at me talking like you already moved!)
Oh, and thanks for the candies ;) and the ripped note haha!

The Elmers said...

Oh my gosh Cathi, I am going to hurt you...you just made me look like such a moron! haha! I totally told Brad all about this and pulled up the picture with the house and I was saying "oh my gosh I wonder how much a house like that in BOSTON would cost, must have been a good job offer!!" and I show it to him and we're re-reading the post and I see the (BTW..blah blah blah..katies a fool...blah blah) I'll get you! ;) when you least expect it! haha!

Cate said...

Hey all, this was fun! In case you were interested...that house is in the Boston area for sale, it's listed at around $350,000. I thought home prices there would have been much higher. I guess bad economy is effecting many! Thanks for the laughs, not at you, just WITH you.....

If you can find a house in Boston like that for $350,000, let me know, so I can sell mine and move there. :)

Okay, so I have a funny story! Heidi Hage asked me if I had read your blog and about how you guys were moving and the whole story and I was like No way!! We totally had this full on conversation about it and how shocked I was that I hadn't heard anything before and how bummed I was to hear that you were moving. So I had to come home and check out your blog for myself. HAHA!! I was dying when I found out it was a total joke and I laughed even harder because Heidi totally missed the prank!! She is so funny! (Sorry I'm telling the story Heidi.) Anyways, nice joke! It's funny how many people missed it! I would be so sad if it were true but thank goodness it's not!

I thought that was a little fishy, but things happen like that. We are glad that you'll be sticking around but it would be nice for you if someone really did offer to buy your house.

Julie said...

You Dog! I totally bought it until I thought no way can I picture them in Boston! Nothing against Boston. Then I looked at the date! You got me! I got my kids by pretending to cut my hand at dinner time. And I even had fake blood. I got Justin even better. Maybe I should blog it. I think I will. Anyways, pretty fun stuff!

Tierra Lowry said...

You are such a brat! That was pretty good, but I didn't fall for it. That would be very awesome though. Boston is like a whole other country. Ha ha ha.
I love the blanket you made for my baby. Such a wonderful thing to know how to do. Thanks

Ashley Clark said...

That is wonderful! I have always wanted to visit Boston. I hope everything goes through with the house. It's gorgeous.

Ashley Clark said...

Wow. Maybe I should have read your post more closely. I'm not very smart!

Laura Smith said...

Oh wow, that's really cool, but I'll miss seeing you in church and getting to know you better! What part of Boston are you moving to? My sister lives in Acton/Boxborough area, and as far as I know all of that area is one stake, so you'll have to keep an eye and ear out for the Agle family. Good luck, will you be in church on Sunday??

PS, that house is adorable, I love the homes in Boston!
