A Time of Transition?

Greetings Bucketeers!

Life in the frigid North has been changing.  Well, it's maybe changing.  We're not sure what is going on for sure.  A week ago, I lost my job.  That story is not something I am wanting to share here.  During the next 4 days Hod had some intense opportunities come up.  He is being very seriously looked at for a new job.  We are really hoping it works out.  Although, if he gets this job, I won't be seeing him until April.  He'll still be sleeping here, but I will probably feel like I'm running an upscale bed and breakfast where they will customize meals to your liking, and they do your laundry.  With full time school and working all but full time that's just the way it will be.  But we feel really good about this opportunity, so we're planning on moving forward if it's offered.

Also, Hod has been applying for internships.  And not a one of them is in the state we currently reside.  He has interviewed for one.  He has applied for others.  He has another interview type of thing in March.  And we don't know if he'll get anything, or when he will start. Meanwhile, I'm applying for jobs.  It's not a fun thing to do, but it's a must.

So, to sum up, Paily: no job.  Hod: Has one job, is interviewing for another, and is also interviewing for paid internships that start sometime.  It is such a good thing I have a dependable hubby!  (And as an added bonus, he is super cute!)

We don't know what is going to happen, we don't know what Hod is going to be offered, nor do we know what we will accept.  But for now we're "loading up the car" so to speak.  That is from an analogy Hod's mom gave him about not being a parked car so the Lord can do what he wants with you.  Right now we figure we've put the car in neutral, and we're packing up the trunk so we can go anywhere.  So, right now it's all one giant MAYBE.

Wow, that's a lot to deal with right now. I totally empathize about not ever seeing your husband. Will and Ben think Andy only lives here on the weekends. Anxious to hear how things pan out for you two.
