I’m sure you’ve all been on the edge of your seats, waiting to hear the news about the job (don’t answer that). I woke up the morning of the interview with a sore throat, got through the (thankfully short) interview just fine, and then dove head first into a cold. It was a struggle to make it through the rest of the day, drive home, etc. I’m starting to feel better now finally, so here we go with a post!
I got the job! Did you doubt that I would? I was pretty sure I’d get it. The interview went beautifully and I am now immersing myself in moving details. We’ve got to do this thing in less than 6 weeks! We are lucky that we know the area very well, have friends and family there to give us tips for setting up things like childcare and housing, and because this move has been in our plans for a while, we have money set aside for it.
We are going to take Jen‘s advice and ditch most of our furniture to make the move easier. We’ll keep our beds, but just about everything else will be sold or donated. We don’t have nice furniture (a mixture of freebies and cheapies), and it makes sense to me to replace it all with stuff we actually like and that will last. We own a lot of stuff that we’ve been meaning to get rid of for a long time. Now is our chance!
I have already scoured rentals and at the top of my list is a 3 bedroom flat in a Victorian with shiny hardwood floors. Jack can have his own bedroom with a play mat and toy storage! The prospect of decorating is exciting.
I will be back with more parenting-centered posts tomorrow. If you have any questions you’ve been meaning to ask, I’d gladly use them as a topic in one of my next posts.
