The Search is Over

We have a job.

The contract will come today in the mail. We are so excited and happy about this we've both had perma-grin since yesterday afternoon when the numbers were finalized. I can't believe it's all over.

Steven will be working for a large cardiologist group but under only one doctor. There are lots of perks to this but mostly better benefits because it's a big group, but he'll only have to answer to one person - not 4+ pushy doctors. The pay is going to be great and we'll be living in a small town just outside one of the major cities in TX. So the cost of living will continue to be rather cheap, but we'll have the access I was hoping for to a big city. (I'm a little ambiguous about the exact location because I've inherited my father's paranoia and seen one too many episodes of Law & Order... if you want to know exactly where, call/email me.)

We're not sure when we're moving (most likely within a few weeks). We're not sure if we're buying or renting (if you have advice about this, freely give it). We're not sure about lots of stuff. This weekend we'll try and make a trip there to look around. And for those of you asking yourself, "what in the world are they doing moving so far along in a pregnancy?" ....well, this is nothing compared to my last one. Thanks to my church family (Audra was bombarded with questions from me), we successfully moved when I was 38 weeks along.

Thanks to all who've been praying for us and wishing us luck through this. Especially those who didn't want this sort of outcome - you know who you are - whether it was because we'll still be far away or because once we move then we'll be far away. You're support is the most appreciated and noticed.

PS It would benefit me greatly as to not have you guess which one of us is the kitten/pig. Remember - I'm pregnant. Just keep it to yourself and out loud say, "those are really cute pictures."

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so happy for you guys! I am guessing by the post time that you couldn't sleep again! It will be so nice to be moved before the baby comes and get a little settled in. I will miss not being able to see you if we ever visit again but I am still so happy for you!

Mindy I am so happy for you! And sad at the same time. We will miss you so much! I can't believe you are leaving so soon. Good luck with everything, and let me know what I can do to help! I'll see you tomorrow.

we're so happy for you guys - Melissa was over and we were so very curious that we had to call Stephen and get the scoop this afternoon. If you need someone to watch the kids while you pack...er, uh, oversee the packing (better not be lifting, missy!), you know my numba!

Melissa said...

Yay! Congrats!!!

I remember when you moved here, you will do just fine. It's been fun seeing you at the doctors office! Maybe we'll have one more hurrah, over there before you move, no? If not I'll see you in March. I was TOTALLY out of it and had been crying when I saw you there yesterday (I just walked in to see if I could see him b/c I was at Dr.M's with the baby, fighting off mastitis myself) -quelle chance to see you! And yes... I 'answer' to one doctor and that's enough! lol. Hey... I'm going to link you on my blog... is that cool? good... thought so.

I Want to Hear From You!
