365 day 52
Jump for joy!!
All the insanity I've been alluding to has resolved a bit today. The husband resigned from his job and accepted an offer from another company. It has been a long, scary slog of us not knowing where we should end up or what we should do, and this decision did NOT come easily. There were offers and opportunities outside of Wisconsin that we would have looooooved to have taken, but nothing felt right. Even this decision didn't feel right for a long time. Stay in Wisconsin, PLUS add another half hour to the commute and cut our family time at night? Ugh. It's been tough. I'm not going to lie - staying here was not our first choice. Nothing personal, Wisconsin, but you don't make life all that easy. I live 2 hours from a major airport, Walmart is virtually our only shopping option in town, and to get my 2 year old (who routinely licks shopping carts) to the doctor, I have to drive an hour just to get there. And let's not get into being so far from my band mates (in Georgia... *sob*) and my musical life. Ugh, I say. Also, I don't drink alcohol so I have very little in common with the locals.
BUT. We are supposed to be here for some reason. So we are. And at least knowing that has made me feel lighter than I have in a long time. So when the Dude pulled all the covers off my bed and started jumping, I decided I should join him.
And now that I know we're staying put for a little while longer, I can think about decorating our bedroom a bit. Any suggestions?
HEAR YE. I need to document the fact that I ran 3 miles and didn't feel like death. So just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I did...
