Life is a Whirlwind

I apologize for the lack of posts. Since my honeymoon life has been completely insane. Work cut our hours, money was almost totally gone, and then Josh got fired.

And here we are a few weeks after Josh gets fired with our things packed up and moved all the way from Arkansas to Indiana. And we're in a town neither of us had ever been, in a slightly smaller apartment, that costs more, we're moving in today. I was hired by Kohl's in this city in Indiana, and Josh will be doing a lot of job searching for factory or manufacturing work.

But there is a ray of sunshine here. I was sick and tired of living in our previous town because I felt stuck. Josh and I both hated our jobs. And now that we are here in Indiana, we're much closer to my family. Rather than 7 hours away, the drive to my sister's house is 30 minutes, and the drive to my mom's is only 2 hours. This city is also much bigger, so there are things to do that don't involve wandering Wal-Mart.

Really this was all the process of answered prayer. I've been ready to move on and get life really going, and now we can. It seems dark and scary, but it's actually very good for us.

And now, to contrast that slightly negative-sounding post, here's pictures from my Big Darn Swap package I got!

  1. I'm so glad everything worked out! :( When I got laid off in July I felt like my whole world had imploded, but then I realized that I hated my job, hated the town, and it was about time I went back to school - and now I'm happier than I could have ever been :)
