My husband has been job hunting for a while. He’s had a job, but just an adequate one.
Now he’s landed a better one, but we have to move for it, just a couple hours north of where we are now.
I’m happy and sad about it. Happy that he got a better job with room for advancement. Sad that we have to move, which means leaving friends, family and even my garden.
We’re hoping to hand the garden down to someone who will care for it. We have a few friends who have admired it, and the containers could possibly be moved. We’re also letting a few friends know in case they want to change where they’re renting. We’re also going to try potting some of the tomatoes to take along with us.
As I told my husband, we can keep in touch with friends and family, but losing the garden we’ve put so much work into really stings. Especially since we can’t start another one for the summer, although we may be able to do something for fall.
These next several weeks will be really busy for me. They want my husband to start on June 22, so he’ll be spending weeknights at my sister’s house, who lives about an hour from the new job. Better than driving 2 or more hours to get home, sleep and leave again, hardly seeing anyone.
I’ll be packing and researching places to rent while he’s gone, so that we can minimize this whole mess.
I’ll post when I can, and hope that we can get internet service quickly in the new place!
There’s still a slim chance we won’t move. If the local job he applied for wants him and calls this week, all these plans will change. Best of all, the local job might be at a location with an express bus stop practically at its front door. But for now we have to assume that we’re going.
Wow-Stephanie! That’s a lot to do for all of you! Congrats on your hubby’s new job! That is a bummer about your garden!! I know how much you love having your garden! I’ll be checking in to see how things are going for you.
