I just wanted to let you know that Penn's interview was a success, in the sense that it went well, he made it home safely, and he was offered the position.
However, he just turned it down.
Although the salary was extremely generous, the cost of housing in the area is $500/sq ft and up. ! He looked at several two bedroom cottages on itty bitty lots in the $550-700,000 range and wasn't impressed with the safety of the neighborhoods.
It is a beautiful area with lovely weather but very very busy and full of people.
We feel good about the decision and are excited about staying here for the holidays.
And in the meantime, I'm enjoying my four bedrooms, ample storage space, and normal-sized back yard!
