The big news!

I figured that it was time that I share our news on my blog.  We’ve known about it for a couple of months, but it’s only been for sure for a few days.  Brian has found a full time job in Atlanta.  We will be moving at the end of July.  I have accepted a job as an ER nurse working 3PM to 3AM.  We’re really excited and everything has been working out a little too easily.  It’s kind of scary how things work out sometimes and other times nothing goes as planned.  I guess God has a purpose for everything.

We’re really excited, Brian has been looking for a job for a long time now.  Basically waiting and praying since before we got married over five years ago.  But seriously searching for over a year now.

We’re also freaking out a little bit too.  Next month is going to FLY and we still need to pack up all of our junk and find somewhere to live.  We’re hoping that even in this awful market with banks being super picky that we might be able to get qualified for a mortgage and buy our first house.  Right now we’re both waiting to get actual contracts from our employers so we can get the paperwork turned in to finalize the loan.  The broker we have talked to thinks that it looks like a good possibility.  We’re planning on buying an already completed house from a builder.  There were several houses we liked, but the communities were EMPTY and the amenities like pool and such not finished.  That just scares me that the community will never be completed with the market the way it is.  And lead to us not being able to sell down the road.  We did find a few communities that are pretty much full or the builder is a big company that is still building.  I’m trying to trust God that he is going to work everything out.

So, our prayer requests right now….

1. That our landlord will find someone to rent our apartment so we can get out of our lease.  He’s showing it to two different people tomorrow, just 2 days after posting the add.  If he finds someone to sign a lease starting August first, then we won’t have to pay any fees or anything.  Awesomeness, considering we still have 6 months left in our lease!!!

2.  That we can find a house and have all of the paperwork go through quickly and easily.

3.  That we can get all of the many things on our to do list done in the next few weeks.  Unfortunatly with us both working full time the days we have off to get work done are few and far between.


1.  That God has blessed us with two great jobs with raises for both of us, both pretty significant.  I know we needed them right now.  The hospital called to offer me the job the same day that I interviewed.  The hospital seems great and I think I’m going to feel spoiled there!

2.  That our landlord and bosses have been sooooo supportive of us leaving.  My boss isn’t thrilled, but she knew that Brian was looking for a job from the day that I started.

3.  That the hospital and church are going to cover our moving expenses.  The church had planned to all along, but the fact that the hospital is going to pay most of what we plan to spend makes me feel less guilty about paying someone else to move our junk down 3 flights of stairs!!

We’re going to see Brian’s parents over the 4th of July.  We haven’t seen them in over a year, so we really needed to visit before we’re farther away.  Two days after we get back from his parents’ we leave to go back to Atlanta to try to find a house.  We’ll only have one full day down there.  Unfortunatly it’s the longest break from work I have between now and the end of July.

Anyway, please keep us in your prayers over the next month or so.

Oh, and I have pics to post from the two Reds’ games we’ve been to in  Cincinnati and the Braves game we went to while we were in Atlanta.  I think that will have to wait until I have more time!
