We'll start off with the bad news. WB finally made an official decision regarding Shelley working remotely: negative. They've decided to phase out her position and have her train a short-term replacement for some of her work. This is currently expected to take her about a month, which is our expected departure date from now.

This is NOT GOOD for our current plans. We're looking at options. Chief amongst them is the possibility of a severance package or unemployment status. Another alternative is that Shelley would stay here and continue to work while I go back and move into the new house in mid-May. As far as we know, her job won't actually be phased out if she's still in it. She'll be talking with her boss tomorrow, who's not liking the decision from on-high, but cannot do much about it.

None of the above matters all that much if the CA house sells. Which brings us to the good news: our open house today brought in more than half a dozen couples looking for a new home. This is far better than last week's single curiosity-drawn viewer. Our mailbox-posted flyers are steadily draining away too, so people are looking and our hopes remain positive.

As mentioned, our agent doesn't want us around during open house showings, so we drove up to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Preserve to view the annual display of orangeness. Although the hillsides glowed in the bright sunshine, the unpleasantly strong chilly wind made for poor visiting conditions and we didn't stay that long. A few photos follow.

Orange is the color of the day!

I said ORANGE!

The wind made for a bad hair day.

A girl takes in the view.
