I got a phone call straight out of the blue this morning. I bet my boss would have had a fit if he had been listening in to, as I was at my desk in the office when my cell phone rang. This guy I used to work with told me he had a big job open and he was in a hurry, offered me a bonus if I would drop everything and take it. It is League City TX, I ended up at this page after I looked around, http://www.energyproviderstexas.com/texas-electric-company-rates/l/league-city/. I was trying to figure out what it was to be honest. I never heard of the place and I had no idea if it was near Dallas or Galveston or San Antonio or nowhere near any of those places. It is in fact really close to the Houston Ship Channel right between Houston and Texas City, which in turn is not far from Galveston out on the barrier islands.
Of course it is not so simple for me to pick up and move. A couple of years ago I could have done it no problem. At that point the wife was a girlfriend and she was a senior in college, but now she has her own career and in fact she is making rather good money. So you do not get to look at it as just a nice raise for me. It is not a raise for me if I get a job that pays a fifth more and she has no job down there. If there was a job for the wife where she was as well off as she is now, then that would be good math. As it is the math does not work out at this point in time. In fact it seems like Ann might be headed up the ladder.
