The major events in the five years of our marriage have generally been unplanned. We essentially fly by the seat of our pants. And we seem to do everything in stress clusters of three:
-Marry, graduate college, move to California
-Move back to Kansas, both start full time jobs, get pregnant
- Lyra's death was our exception...and by the far the most stressful and that in itself could count for a billion events.
We will be adding: have a baby, start new job, and move to new town.
L was offered a fabulous new job. One that would mean more stability, but it also means moving to a more rural part of the state. We can handle rural. But we'll be moving by the end of February. Since I can't travel, that means L is finding a house for us, and moving all of our stuff. Hopefully still add a new baby transition and it's a pretty stressful situation. But I haven't seen L this excited in a really long time. And that makes me happy. So, we're jumping in feet first!
