I got a job!

I have some very good news to share with you all...I got a job! I will be working in the College Relations department at my alma mater, The College of Idaho. Although the job pays about $15,000 less a year than what I was making, it will be so much better in the long run! I know this is a step in the right direction, even though we may struggle for a bit in the beginning. I am totally starting over in a new career, but I am confident that this is the place that I am meant to be. We will probably be short selling our house because there is no way we can make a payment now, but I think everything will work out the way it is supposed to and we will be happier and a lot better off! Thank you everyone for all your thoughts and prayers. I truly believe that every little one counts! Your friendship amazes me all the time!! My first day is August 25th, so that means I have a week and a half left of my "vacation"...maybe I should get some things done that I need to so that I can share it all with you!!

YAY! YAY! YAY! What an answer to prayer!
A house is just a house, it's your family and God that make it a home. He will provide a great new place for you. I hope you will be happy in your new position :)
