7 Quick Takes Friday....Big News, Big Changes and Small Takes


So, it's time for our second long-distance move in as much as three months.  Back in May, we moved from Florida to Rhode Island while Ben studied for the VA bar exam.  So, we always knew we'd have to move again.


On Tuesday evening, Ben got and accepted a job offer.  Unfortunately it's not a legal, lawyer's a teaching job.  But still a good one that will pay the bills and it gets us into the state in which we want to reside.  So..Yay!

He needs to be there next Wed, so that gave us less than a week to find movers, find  a place to rent, pack up stuff and get out of here...and two days of that needs to be for travel. 


To say that I was a bit stressed is a bit if understatement.  More like full-blown panic attack.  Picture this!


We found  a place to rent (sight unseen) so when handed the lease, Ben did what any other, just graduated from law school lawyer would do and picked it apart, read it super carefully and came back with a list of modifications/clarifications. I'm just hoping they'll still accept us...please, please, please.  We're really nice people, I promise. 


So, I may not be blogging much in the next week or two.  How lame is blog about not blogging?  Lame, lame, lame. 


I feel like I'm 25 again...looking into rentals, having to set up utilities and worry about all those little things that I hadn't had to worry about while living in Fl.  Ya know...things like electric bills, and winter, and heating oil..those things. 

Now, go see Jen for more Quick Takes.

  1. #2 Congratulations!!! Good luck with that move! I'm praying for you!

  2. HOOOOORAY! Good luck with everything and we'll keep the prayers coming!

  3. Oh yay!!! Where will you all be moving?

  4. Yay for a new job!!! Boo for moving again!

  5. Congratulations on the job but another move is tough...and so quickly. One of our toughest moves was across the driveway. Since it was so close, we didn't box everything and then move, we just kind of moved in shifts/waves. When I would go to make dinner, the salt would be in the new house and the pepper in the old. (In case you're wondering what kind of crazy moves across the driveway, it's two homes set up on one farm. One home was smaller and that's where we started when we only had 2 children. Then after #4 we moved into the larger.)

    3-2-1 Party
