Of course I was a lot happier back in Fort Worth and I would love it if things could go back to the way they were, but it was time for me to move on to a new position, but it was not that easy. I had to search around and checked out a ton of the energy providers in texas before I got this job. It is pretty much more than what I was expecting to be honest. I applied for the job and did not think that I would get it at all. In fact I was surprised when they called me back for a second interview. They knew that I was not fully as qualified as I needed to be, but my old supervisor must have convinced them that I would be able to handle the work about as well as any of the other people who applied for the job.
So I was totally unprepared for the move to Abilene. It was not so difficult as I thought that it might be though. My brother in law and got our trucks and we both got hold of landscape trailers from people that we knew. I knew a guy who was willing to sell me his trailer for a couple hundred dollars. I did not really need it beyond the move, but I went ahead and bought it since it was really cheap. I rented this little house that a baptist church owned. It used to be the parsonage, but it must have been too small for any preacher with a family. It is basically the same size as a very small apartment. In fact it is about the same size as the dorm room I lived in when I was a freshman at Texas Christian University.
