I’ve got a couple blog posts to do here tonight or in the next few days so bear with me, but I’ll try and keep it somewhat topical.
The biggest most exciting thing going on is not only is my husband almost finished with school (not even 2 months left!) but he has had several interviews for a company up in Colville that is looking for a Design Engineer. He’s underqualified for the position but the fact is, it’s RIGHT up his alley (they mfg wood stoves), it’s 20 minutes away from where we want to build our home, and unlike many of their applicants he won’t be looking for something else once the economy recovers.
They did put off the hiring for a bit so we won’t hear back for another couple months but I am praying hard for this… those of my readers who also pray please pray for us! This job could mean big things, not only getting up there to the property quicker (we were thinking it could take 3-5 years after he’s done with school) but the income, if we kept our standard of living the same, could allow us to build a home over a period of a few years with NO MORTGAGE. Of course, that’s if things were at optimum conditions but I guess I’m trying to say that it would be AMAZING if we could get up there.
As of right now, my parents are up there and I am so jealous! They have gotten their Maremma sheepdogs, and the dogs are absolute gems. They also have a wire coop full of chicks! My mom and I spent an afternoon building the coop while the girls were napping on a day I happened to have off and she was here for the day. It was a wonderful day.
Which leads me to another topic… my emotional state right now is not very stable. I feel like me working has been unsustainable for so long emotionally and so I’m starting to run short. Kinda like an oil tank (anyone heat with oil?) when you run it and run it and it starts to get low, there’s all kinds of stuff at the bottom of the tank that gunks it all up. That’s kinda how I feel. I could sure use some prayers to lift my spirits also… it’s becoming very difficult for me to drop my kids off with someone else and then go sit at a desk all day long.
