We're moving, again!
Since Thomas was laid off at Capital Group last June he's had a goal to work with USAA, a company in San Antonio, TX that provides military families with insurance and banking options. He had been offered a position with them at the same time he was offered Capital Group and they were our # 1 choice until CG. So I get to be the proud wife and say after a few months of trying to get contacts and work his way back into their sights he has received and accepted a position with them beginning mid April.
This decision hasn't been an easy one for us, as there are many things we needed to consider. I will answer here the question I've been asked by many, "Will it be hard to leave Cali?" YES! That has been the biggest piece of this puzzle. It seems wrong enough already to not have her physically with us daily, but having her so close we are able to go up to see her very often, having that change is a huge sacrifice and leap of faith in doing what we believe is right for us. I love my little girl. I will miss her on an even newer level now that we must leave her resting place.
That srtuggle aside, I am pretty excited about all the possibilities that lie ahead for us. We will be able to buy a house right away as they are quite inexpensive there, which is thrilling! Coming from California where we were struggling to wrap our minds (and budget!) around a $250k 2 bedroom condo it is refreshing to see a beautiful 3-4 bedroom home that we can afford without having to do any major adjusting to our budget!
I'm not sure how many people are out there still following us on here. And honestly I'm not sure I have a whole lot more in me to say on this blog, expect for our little life moments. Things have changed, I have changed. I hope that I can return to my more outgoing self eventually, but as of yet I haven't felt that coming. I have learned through losing Cali the way that I cope, heal, or just try to live through hard things, and a lot of that is in my own quite way. I hope that's ok. Thank you all for what you've given me. Writing my thoughts, and seeing your comments was very helpful. Thank you for giving me that chance to connect. I wish everyone well. I will truly miss our family here in Utah as well as the many wonderful friends that I have made in our church, and through IHH. Heavenly Father truly knew what we would need to be buoyed up after losing Cali and though YOU he provided. I will forever be grateful for the many people who gave so much of themselves in love and prayer to us. Thank you! Now I'm on to the next chapter in my ever changing life. I kinda hope this is a long one. And hopefully boring too :)
