feels like the home stretch...

We're coming into a big week, here in our little home next to the ocean. We've been waiting for this for a while, just kind of hanging here in a holding pattern, and now it's starting to feel like we're coming into the home stretch.

Larry's traveling to mid-Oregon this week for a job interview with a country club there. This is nearby where his aunt and 2 cousins and their families live, so he will get to visit them also while he's there. So, that's the first obvious Big Thing, as if he gets the job we will be moving to another part of the state. Honestly, I'm ready for that. I thought I'd be happy no matter where we lived as long as we were by the sea, but it's not that simple. Larry hates his job here, and that matters. He has to like his job, he deserves to do a job that he likes and feels challenged doing.

I hate to make the kids change schools in the middle of the year, but we've already made so many changes these last few months, I think they are just going to have to go along for the ride a bit further until we get where we can really settle, somewhere that we feel we can actually live for a few years at least.

Interestingly, on the same day that Larry has his job interview scheduled, there is a hearing going on in regards to my Grandma's estate. If all goes well with that, and let's all just cross our fingers that it does, the estate should be settled and we (the 9 grandkids) can receive our equal shares of the estate. It's been over a year since she passed on, everyone else (charities, trustee, etc) has been paid, it's just us, the main beneficiaries, that have yet to see our inheiritance.

Obviously this couldn't come at a better time for me and my family, as we will be able to finance our move and setting up house, etc.

So, yeah, it's a big week for us. We don't know which way it will go, with either the job or the lawyers for Grandma's estate, but I have faith that it will work out the way it's supposed to.

I hope Larry finds what he is looking for.
Mike quit a pretty secure job because he was so unhappy and I totally supported him although at the time financially it set us back a bit.
It's worked out though and he's happier with his new job.
A happy hubby and dad makes a happy family :)
