Shannon got the position in the nearby town we were hoping for.
Now we've got a foundation under us. Now we can sit down and talk about what the future is going to hold. Most of the discussion will be about real estate. I'll be gunning hard for a duplex in the nearby town that's cheap enough that we can still hold on to our current house. He'll be wanting to stay here for a little while in case he wants to bid on a job that may be opening up out this way. Either way, it's freedom. It's the freedom to discuss and debate and choose between real choices and the freedom to act on those choices.
Excuse me, I have to go scream now.
UPDATE: Now I have to sit and sigh, big time. As it turns out, something went a little funny in the bid process and now my dear husband IS going to the town that's 7 hours away. No new house yet. Hopefully, he'll only be there for a few months.
Strangely though, I'm not that disapointed. Knowing where he's going is better then the uncertainty we had before.
But still...Darn it.
