For years I have desired to be closer to home. Home for me is Oregon. But, as many academic families know, things don't always work out in the way that you desire. Academic jobs are highly competitive, and you must go to where the job is.
Still, I long for the simplicity of home. And I am inspired by stories of other families trying to get home. So when my sewing instructor told me about her daughter, and the bet from her husband that could end in her daughter being able to return home; I had to investigate! After all, who doesn't like fun challenges between spouses?
After checking out her blog, I have decided that this girl deserves to be returned home. And I am sending in my hundred pennies to support her. That's right: ONE DOLLAR! Look in your car to see if you can support her as well!
