pdx and okc
i just purchased our airline tickets to oklahoma city and submitted our notice to end our rental agreement at this house. wow. we're moving. it still hasn't really sunk in, but here's a few things we will miss and a few things we're excited about in our relocation. when i say "things" i mean commercial establishments. of course this excludes natural beauty, relationships, etc. these are just the surface stuff, but still fun to think about...
losing by leaving the portland metro area
-trader joe's (another big ouchie)
-old spaghetti factory
gaining in oklahoma city
+SONIC (need i say more?!)
+target super center
+home ownership at half the price or less
each city and region has it's own local businesses that you wish you could pack in your suitcase when you leave. which one would you take?
