Last night after dinner and before everyone packed up to head home we had some quiet moments on the deck, watching the kids down on the dock and just chatting. That’s when my brother dropped the news that he’s been offered a promotion at work. The only problem with that is he will have to move to the corporate headquarters, which is in Dallas. Needless to say, that really upset Mother, and I can’t believe he would have waited to share that info with us until the last minute. But then, he said he figured Mother would be upset and he didn’t want the news to cast a shadow on the whole weekend.
I think the move to Dallas would be great for him and the family – Dallas is a wonderful city with all kinds of opportunities for an active family. Mother could easily fly out there for several visits throughout the year, and he would be coming back here for visits, too.
