I haven't posted in a long time, but I have the best reason ever: I finally got a job!
in another state.
We're moving to said state on sunday. Away from all of our family and friends (although we'll be 2 hours closer to my parents...good news for Christmastime!) It's going to be a huge change, for sure. 3rd floor walkup, traffic and people everywhere, much higher prices because we'll be close to a major government organization. We've set a super strict budget for ourselves that we're going to stick to as closely as possible, we're hoping that by the end of our 12-month lease we'll either be out of debt or ready to buy a house. Both would be super sweet, but I don't think that's possible unless we won the lottery or something.
It's going to be a rough weekend, there will be lots of packing, sorting, cleaning, organizing, etc, not to mention the drive. I've been staying down there during the week to work, then coming back home every weekend to see the kids and Bogie. I'll be glad when we're all together in one place again! That's an exhausting way to live.
Say a little prayer for us, it's going to be a long weekend, especially with a 2 year old and almost 4 year old thrown into the mix.
Where's my coffee?
