There's about 3 weeks left for my husband to prepare for his next big exam, so we are in high test mode.
Things are looking positive. Keep your fingers crossed for us.
We have again taken a break from almost any extra activities that we ever allow ourselves because there is just no time right now. We miss our band and our dance club friends thought that maybe we had already moved away without letting them know...
Meanwhile, the one thing my husband allows himself as a 'break' is his bowling leagues. He bowls twice a week. He's done it since he was eleven. He is pretty darn good. He is currently averaging 221. This is also a good sign for the upcoming test. It seems the better he is bowling, the better he tends to perform on his exams. A funny coincidence?
Hey, maybe if this actuarial thing doesn't work out, he could join the PBA tour...
Meanwhile, we have put in the word with the recruiters that we would like to look at anything along the gulf coast area that is within a reasonable distance to a beach- no more than about 3 hours for us.
Our first choices are in Texas of course- Houston, San Antonio or Austin.
Also anything in Florida, except maybe Miami because of higher cost.
Finally, anything from Florida to South Carolina.
We'll have to look at details of individual places to see what we think as we go along, but I sure hope this makes for a quicker departure to warmer weather. Soon!
