Lest you forget, as I am so prone to 'detours' along the way, this blog was mainly created to document and share my process of moving out of state- to a place that suits my inner self a bit better than the 'lovely in many ways- yet not quite for me' Northwest/Seattle area that I was born into and am still currently residing in.
This week as I slave away at making my typical Northwest jungle of a yard (yes, I had a friend from Texas ask me why people don't ever trim their yards out here and I had to reveal that we do trim them all the time and then the Sasquatch comes along at night and sprinkles the vegetation with magic dust that makes it all grow back to where it was before) come into some type of less unkempt shape, my husband is working over 3 different job possibilities. Any one of these jobs will be good for us in some form or another and they will all get us to SoCal. My husband is in different places within the process with each of these jobs and there is no guarantee that any one of them will actually be offered to him. However, let's face it, the odds are good that he can get at least one of these to become a bonafide offer.
I am hopeful and accepting of the idea that whatever job comes around, it will be what we need. I am also simply amazed at how this process has resulted in my husband becoming more secure in who he is and what he has to offer. I am just so pleased to see a tiny bit of ego coming around for that man. He has worked hard and deserves to believe in himself.
This process has been crazy. From coming into the idea that I could ever even think of leaving the only place I've ever called home, to landing on the fact that we love Texas in ways we never could have imagined, to realizing that for this particular season of life Southern California is the right place for us. This has been a roller coaster of surprises and realizations. And my husband and I both sense that it is all coming to a resting spot soon. We have good plans for what each of us would like to do for the next 3 years or so and a direction for where to go over the next decade. We are excited to find out what the universe has in store!
