Hey Laurie - just popping in to say hi and good luck with the move. Hope it all lines up for you. Can you check online to see the status of the refund? There was an article about the delays in sending the payments on cnn.com:

http://money.cnn.com/2011/06/02/pf/t...delay/?npt=NP1

Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Thanx Bridget!!! Unfortunately, you can't use the "Where's My Refund" feature on ammendments. We had already filed our regular returns & got back our refund (that's how I was able to go on the Diva's trip). We filed the ammendment & included a ton of extra paperwork showing the girls adoption & special needs status. We've never received a letter saying it's under further review (which I think is a good sign). It says it takes 6-8 weeks with proper paperwork........so here's to hoping we're in that category since we haven't heard anything!!!! If that's that case we could have the check anytime now. Our tax gal said it could take 4-6 months.......so we figured by summer's end......but maybe we'll be one the few lucky ones that had absolutely everything they could possibly need to do our return!!

So I just wanted to update everyone on the "limbo land" we're living in......lol

Well we were really set & looking seriously at the Sacramento area, researching schools, rentals, etc. BUT.......there are no meat cutting or meat manager positions available thru Safeway in that area anymore. The closest to Sac is Truckee & that would be a bit too cold for me.

So Mike is looking at these current openings: Campbell, Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills, Chula Vista & La Mesa.

Keep your fingers crossed!!!

Will update again when I have any news.

PS: Still waiting not so patiently for the refund check!!

Wow, all of them but Campbell are a lot closer to Disneyland for sure!!



Don't you love how the government is? If you owe them they will breath down your neck, but if they owe you it is hurry up and wait.

That would be MUCH closer!!

I wish the rent prices in Southern Cali weren't so high.......I'd love to be within an hours drive of DL!!!! I could meet up with everybody that came down....that would be soooooooooooo AWESOME!!

I don't know what the weather is like in the Campbell area.....I know I don't want to be in the Bay Area.....can't stand the wind. Need to be somewhere a bit warmer.....that's one of the reasons for relocating.

Sherman Oaks & Woodland Hills is in the North Hollywood area.....wouldn't that be fun!!
Chula Vista & La Mesa is south of San Diego.....I'd go, but a little freaked out about being that far south & that close to the ocean. I know....strange little fears I have....but I'm being truthful.

I just hope he gets a job offer!!!!!! (then of course, the money is a big must too!!)

Well, Campbell is in the south bay. More like in the San Jose area. I don't think they get quite the heat we do here.

I'll ask Paula after her trip......I think that area would be my last choice of the options he is looking at.

Honestly I think that Campbell is pretty good area. I know you want to get out of Oregon though.

Laurie just wondering will the pay be a lot better for Mike in those areas so that you would be able to afford the increases in housing costs? Because I know as you said most of those areas are either So cal or Bay area and I know those are all expensive. Is he willing to commute any distance because if you DID take the job in Truckee he could live in like Auburn which is not too far and the housing there is pretty reasonable.

Just a thought. And Auburn is not that cold. VERY rarely gets snow and is pretty much like here.
