I haven't sat at a poker table in... well, I don't know how long. That doesn't mean, however, that I haven't been playing poker. It's a game of poker that doesn't involve cards or chips, but there's still plenty of bluffing, and I definitely have to know when it's time to fold.
In a little more than a week, I will be married. Less than a month later, I'll be starting a brand new job in a brand new city. Oh... and I'll be a first time homeowner.
How's that for a multi-way pot?
Change isn't easy. I haven't had much time to think about what it's going to be like to be married because I've been focused on planning this whole crazy wedding. Then, smack dab in the middle of this, I've had to find a new job. Let's just say my Luckbox skills have once again extended to the real world.
In addition to finding the perfect woman in Lady Luck, I've now had a perfect job opportunity fall in my lap. With a contract that's soon to expire, I decided staying in Lafayette wasn't right for me.
From Lincoln to G-Vegas to Knoxville to Lafayette... and now Evansville, IN. Once again, it's not a city I ever imagined I'd live in, but in my business, the job often picks you. A 30% increase over what I'm making now sure did help make it an easy decision. Throw in the remarkably good buyers housing market, and I was sold.
Oh, did I mention the casinos? Let's just say I'm thinking E-Vegas might be a good moniker.
Next week, the G-Vegas crew comes to Leezy-anna for a little gambling, a little Bourbon St. and a whole lot of alcohol. Then it's that little wedding thing that I'm honored they've all decided to be a part of. Then Lady Luck and I start packing for our new life a little further north.
To say it's a whirlwind is an understatment. But when I'm settled, I can promise you'll see a lot more of me on here and at the virtual tables. You get to decided if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
