As some of you may have already heard... and if not, well you will be now. Our family has made the big decision to move to FLORIDA! Yes, you heard me correctly. My In-laws, have been wanting us to move there for a few years now. Reluctanly we didn't feel we would do well done there, or wasn't sure that is where we wanted our kids to grow up, so never went. I have lived in florida before, and I did like it there. Minus the cocroaches, and the nasty water bugs! ICK! The fire ants aren't really pleasant either, but there is always something you don't like about some where right?
Anyway, with Andy graduating.. we have been in a job search for a couple of months, and I have been looking as well. Nothing is in this area, unless we move to Portland, or somwhere down towards Southern Maine. I figure if we are going to go anywhere we might as well go where the money is better. :) So, after a few dicussions, and our fears layed out, we decided at this point in our lives, this is the best thing for our family to do. Scared, yes, excited, yes, but if we stick together, and give it our best, we shall rise from this adventure!
After some talking to his parents, we have decided we are all going to go down at once. We will be staying with them for a little while, as we start our job search. Which I am hoping won't take long, as their are so many jobs down there. I found 10 online the other night just for entry level IT, and with good starting salaries! I'm in hopes this could mean good things for our family. I'm tried of scrapping by to make ends meet. Its to stressful, and I want to be able to change that. :) I hope that or friends and family understand. We are going to miss them dearly, but hope we will be able to come back to visit once we are established. Or you can always come visit us!! I will always keep you updated on here, and we will email and talk often!
So, here is the date... Are you ready?? We are leaving in a month. I know, not alot of time, but we are confident we can get everything done we need to. So, wish us luck, and I will keep you updated!
