We've got a job!!!!!!!!

Ok, not we, but my husband, has found a new job. He received the offer yesterday and he accepted early afternoon today. We are going to moving again, but alas, the end is near.... all the work we've been doing on our house; accelerating projects, painting every room a boring shade of neutral (except for the kitchen) and doing things that just make the house look nice and updated, even if it wasn't exactly how we wanted it. I am going to be so sad to say goodbye to this house. It was supposed to be my forever home, so much room, so much potential for long term growth of our family and life. Solid bones!!! I hope to find something like this Brady Bunch house in Arkansas. There's just something I like about houses built in the 70's, I am drawn to them! Rambling ranches with room for everything!

Anyway, my husband goes for some computer training next week with his new group and then when he gets back, we will list the house. So about a week to get the last things done.... just two days to get him to finish his little projects around the house. I don't want to have too many things to do while he is gone. I've packed some things and I will pack some more. Neutralizing every room of the house as much as possible before the realtor comes in and tells me to do it. So, most all of the family pictures are down it seems less and less like my house.

So, I should be back to my ArtFire life along with Twittering and my blog in about a week. I have certainly missed my community online and it will certainly be nice to be back. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a quick sale in this questionable economy. The house has a lot going for it and I hope the right family comes along and sees what we see in this house. I don't want to be stuck here with the kids holding down the fort while my husband moves without us and only comes home for visits. That would suck! I need to move forward, so do my kids... it feels like we have been in limbo for the past 2 long months! On the karma front, looks like things at the old company are still going downhill. True colors are showing and I think they may end up with some surprises in the way of some key people quitting. It is not a happy place to be right now.

Here's to new directions and quick sales!

Congratulations! I'm so glad that your husband found a job. I hope he loves it! Moving is SUCH a pain! My husband is in the Air Force. I feel your pain on the limbo thing! It's exhausting.

Ah, the Air Force! I am a proud Air Force Brat! Sometimes I miss life on the base. I still stay in touch with some of the kids I've met along the way. Being an Air Force Brat sort of helps with the move, that and having moved so much in my adult life... I am used to it, am a pro. I could be ready to go in a week if I had to. LOL

Thanks for leaving the comment :)

Congratulations on a job for your husband. I especially loved your poem and would like to send your sites link to my family in Ireland as we have a cousin who also has DS and is 50.
It brought tears to my eyes.
