I got the job! I'll be ESOL lead faculty as a visiting scholar at a sister school to where I work now. Not really more money, but less time and summers and Christmas off. Also, it's a great opportunity to build a new program, and it's just down the street from the Poes.
So, no California for now, but this is easier than having to pack up and sell. Also, I may be going back to grad school nearby.
