I wish....

I wish I was writing this post about our fabulous new job offer, but we still haven't heard anything. These companies sure like to take their time.

In the meantime, we are still preparing for our move. We found a nice family to rent our house starting June 1st. (I feel like there was some divine intervention with that. We are so grateful.)I'm selling off most of my baby stuff, trying to clean out the attic and make a little extra cash. I haven't decided if I want to part with the crib yet. I'm 99.9999% sure we are done, I'm just feeling sentimental, I guess.

I'm trying to sell my beloved dining room table and chairs since wherever we go, I doubt we'll have a dining room. We're planning to rent either a small house or apartment for at least six months...and we could use the money.
Anyone interested??? :)

Pat did start a so-called"survival job" a couple weeks ago, and I've been substitute teaching when I can, along with teaching dance a couple times a week so at least that's something.

I know there are so many people in similar situations. I guess that's why I decided to post this. I've been hesitant to do so since I usually try to keep my blog more upbeat. Still amidst all of this, I am trying to focus on the positive, and I am hopeful that Pat will get an offer really soon.

Some days are just easier than others.

But who knows? We could get a call on Monday and everything will change for the better.

We're hoping and praying!

Until then, I'm grateful I've got my cute kiddos to help keep my mind off of things.
They are always up to something...
especially this little guy.

we're all in this sinking boat together!! :) but really, some days ARE harder than others. but this too shall pass and for whatever it's worth, i think you have done an AMAZING job being positive through a tough time. we could build a cheese factory to go with all my whine. :)

Well, I have to say- You really do a good job of being positive! I know it is hard to stay positive, Adam didn't get a job offer until a few MONTHS after his first interview because of all the people they had to interview. It was nerve wracking because I felt like we were in limbo. The time will come for you, just stay focused on your kids! Most importantly- stay positive!

Hope everything works out for you and your family! I know how stressful it can be to think about the unknown, but staying positive and hopeful is the best way to deal with it. Keep it up and you will be blessed!

BTW, I feel the same way about my two girl's--their laughter, naughtiness, and infectious smiles have pulled me out of many down-days.
