I do really like my new iPhone. I even found an app that allows me to post, but not view Livejournal entries. I can use Safari for that.
Well today is my last day at TU. I’m off to Tucson, again. I never expected to be going back, but Melissa got a great gig with the U of A law school. I did get a job. Ironically enough not in Tucson. I’ll be working remotely as a contractor for a small web firm in Stillwater of all places. It’s a short term contract, but if things work out I’ll get more work.
The other bit of good news is that we sold our house yesterday. It’d been on the market since May. The housing market isn’t that bad in Tulsa. We made a few missteps that I think hurt our chances early on, but ironed those out.
As for the housing market in Tulsa. It is slowing, but what hurts it is the perception created by the national situation where the housing markets are really dire. For example, the market in Tucson is pretty bad. Not as bad as Las Vegas, California, or Florida. Arizona is pretty high up on the list though. To be blunt the Tucson market was overpriced. As homebuyers, Melissa and I will have the luxury of finding the house we want for a reasonable price.
All in all, I consider us to be very fortunate in this economy. Things could get worse for us, but we are in a good position to weather the storm. As long as the Great Depression 2.0 isn’t worse than 1.0. We can definitely call it the Great Recession.
