All of a Sudden...

Everything's possible.

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.

How weird.

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.

Darn it.

Strangely though, I'm not that disapointed. Knowing where he's going is better then the uncertainty we had before.

But still...Darn it.

Oh, the ups and downs of life! As you say, thought, knowing is better than uncertainty, even if it isn't what you hoped for most.

Well, if there's anything I *have* figured out, it's that the direction you're pushed in is based on something you've wanted... so take solace in the fact that you're still going in the right direction, even though you might not think so. I've got about ten years on you and I've been all over the place, none of it planned. The "plans" just don't work out, so now I just sit back and try to follow the cues correctly at this point in the game. I think you should be more excited than ever now, wondering just where it is you're ultimately headed and seeing if you can decipher just what you put out there 'want & wish-wise' to get you to this new place... hmmmm....

I should add that's there's an excellent chance that he'll be back here in a couple of months when another position opens up. Regardless of what happens there will be a territory opening up next summer that is his dream position and he'll have the seniority to nab it.

Compared to where we were last year, I have NOTHING to complain about.

Well, I'm glad you've gotten the news at last. I'm with you. The waiting is the most difficult. We won't hear for another few months, at least.
