Moving to Montana


Martin received not one, but two job offers for positions in Helena, Montana. And the job he took was one he didn't even apply for, they came looking for him to interview. I am very, very proud of him and the work he does with the environment, groundwater computer modeling and geological field work. We are packing up and leaving in 16 days (eep!), Martin's dad is helping us find a place to live and dad or brother will likely fly in to Dulles to help take turns driving on our cross country move.

Saying Goodbye to Virginia


It is official: We are leaving Virginia. By the 14th of September, we will send our belongings out ahead of us, load up the cars with kids and cats and happily put the South behind us.

Where next is another question entirely. There is a job transfer within the company my husband works for to the Ann Arbor, Michigan office - closer to my family, or there might be a job in Helena, Montana for him - near his family. Just a few more days wait until we know. Either way, we are out of Virginia. This has all come together so quickly, I didn't think it would happen this year. I am thrilled.
