How have you been lately? Sorry I haven’t written in such a long time. In the future, I’ll make an effort to write you more often.
I will be moving to Houston next week to take a job in a law office there. My new address will be 1324 Park St. I am almost finished packing and hopefully the move itself will go smoothly.
Though Houston is several hours’ drive from San Antonio, it’s a lot closer than Phoenix. I hope that I’ll occasionally be able to visit you or vice versa. Write me and let me know how you’re doing.
