mourning

Update

Okay, so here's the update: not necessarily going to leave in August. Would still like to, but I'm going to procure a job and a place to live first. I *was* going to do this via internet and phones, but Mom gave me the idea to possibly go out there by train or bus first to get settled, while putting my stuff in storage. Which, being the sensible-est plan, I might be doing. I'm going to run it by Lilla.

And adding to it my own idea: I might keep my job here a little longer if I can, and take some vacation time off for this "settle in" trip. Though then I run into the problem of how to quit the casino job and get my stuff without endangering my new Portland job. Most places you have to work there for a certain amount of time before you can take time off. Though I suppose if I explained things, they'd let me start out at part time and become full time once I was all moved. Then I could have several days off in a row in which to Amtrak back here, get my things packed up into the truck... shit. That still means... Hmm...

Well, unless you lot have any ideas, I might not be able to get a job in Oregon without quitting the casino first. What say thee?
