The timing was a bit of a surprise because we were under the impression he couldn't sign with a team until free agency begins in March....well we were wrong! We were hanging out watching a movie on Friday when Jacksonville called and Jordan left an hour later for Florida! We were expecting a normal Christmas holiday this year since Jordan is injured and not playing. This would have been the first in 6 years BUT not so much. Jordan has to stay in Jacksonville this week as they finish out the season Sunday. So....Hunter and I are in Dallas with the fam wishing Jordan was here :(
We will be moving this spring (March/April) to Florida so he can begin offseason with the team. We have no plans at the moment to sell our Houston house or move our belongings. We plan to rent a condo in Florida since he signed a short term contract (1 year). His shoulder should be completely healthy in time for the 2009 season. In fact, I predict his shoulder will be 100% by March!
We are very sad to leave our Houston friends and our church here but we are very excited about the move and look forward to being Floridians for 8 months as well as all the traveling we plan to do up and down the east cost while we're there :)....so many places to see!
