If you have been around here awhile you may know that Anthony is looking for a new job. He has been with his current employer for almost 6 years now and has become pretty bored. It is only a 6 person office and he has been doing the same thing since he started as an intern there during college. Now there is nothing wrong with the people and we are glad to have weathered the recession with a job at all, but doing the same thing everyday isn't for everybody. So far every promising job offer has fallen through for one reason or another, but Ant called me on Friday to let me know that. . .
WE ARE MOVING TO WASHINGTON D.C.!!!!!
The job that he interviewed for in December and only lost because they no longer needed another person called him to say that they have more work than they realized and really do need him after all.
I'm not gonna lie. I'M FREAKING OUT!!!
And not necessarily in a good way. Yes, I'm excited to be leaving Philadelphia, but we just moved into this place. We haven't even been here 2 months and now you want me to repack and do it all again 2 states away in a place that I have only been once when I was 9 years old!?!?!?! Not to mention you want me to do it all in a month's time! They asked him to start at the beginning of April. Which is enough for you know giving your 2 weeks and all, but not so great for canceling a lease and finding a new apt. in a different state!
It is a very odd sensation getting what you wanted and then realizing you might not want it at all. I know I'm just scared and nervous, and a whole slew of other emotions, because we won't know anyone, or where anything is, but it gets compounded because I'm the Mommy. I'm supposed to know how to do everything and keep it all together and flowing smoothly even if I feel like I just want to hide under the covers and let it all blow over.
So, here we go. Off on another adventure. (My title does say something about crazy doesn't it?) I have no idea how this is all going to affect my blogging, but I hope you will understand if things start to wane a little. (I feel like they already have.) Maybe when the shock wears off
Now I'm going to wrap up this terribly long ramble and go get something done. Everyone wish me luck and cross your fingers that this doesn't go as horribly wrong as our last moving experience!
