East Coast move

Thank you all for visiting yesterday to wish me a Merry SITSmas. I promise to get back to each one of you soon. But let me just inform you a little on our move.

Last Friday, I got a phone call just a little bit after Big A left to go to the Husker game. Our Dream Job offered us the job! I was kind of shocked; I hadn't heard from them in about a month and after they said they weren't filling the position, I wasn't expecting to hear from them until at least the beginning of next year.

Anyway, so they want us to move out there between January 7-9 and start training the 12th. We took a few days to do our pro/con list like we do with every big decision, and really the pros just really outweigh the cons. We're really excited for this change. It'll be tough, no doubt, but I think we will be good at the job and can actually be something good for these kids.

So if I'm busy this month, I apologize. Next week, Moose and I are going out mid-week to visit my family and Big A is going to join us for the weekend. I'm so excited to see my sisters and parents! Plus a bunch of family is coming back for a family dinner!!

My hubby just got a new "dream job" so I totally understand how you're feeling right now. So happy for you!

pumpkinpatches said...

I just came across your blog today and I am taken back by your honesty and love for Christ and His power to bring you through tough times. My husband does music ministry and almost missed our sons birth by being in California, but God came through and he made it...things were tough without him 2 days later; but God promises that is plans are to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future(Jeremiah 29:11)!
Thank you for your life story!
