BIG Changes Ahead…

I shouldn’t be up at this hour, but I just can’t sleep (again!) because in just a few short months our lives are going to be turned upside down.
A few weeks ago Greg was offered another position within the company. It’s a different job than he is doing now (still a desk job, though), for a different group, and he thinks he will be much happier at this new position. It’s more money, too, which is a definite plus. Only thing is…. it’s in Anchorage. As in Alaska!!! We talked it over and talked it over again, and then talked it over some more. They needed a decision by the end of the month, and today (or I guess technically yesterday) Greg accepted. I still can’t quite believe it, and I’m excited and very nervous at the same time. The kids are taking it well. Sara seems excited… Melissa would rather stay where we are, but she’s glad that they get to finish the school year before the big move (will be end of June/middle of July).
Greg was in Alaska for about three months back in 1989 (he worked for a different company then) and said it was absolutely beautiful. We shall see! Guess you won’t hear me whining about the lack of snow anymore, but I don’t like being even further away from my boys 😦
There’s so much to take care of, and not much time to do it in, and I can’t promise how much I’ll be around. Posts will go up here as usual, but it might be a few days between commenting on your blogs.

Off to try and get some sleep, going to be a looong day!

    • Yes, unfortunately most of our summer plans have changed. We’re only going to take a few days to go see my boys.
      I guess instead of us visiting you, you will be visiting us! 😉

  3. Whoa, girlfriend! That is SOME news! Of COURSE I am excited and happy for you! (Guess all your wishing for snow finally paid off? 😉 ) What an amazing opportnity! You will be in picture heaven with all that amazing scenery! 🙂

    Sad, tho, that I won’t get to see you this summer… Methinks it will be a long time before I make it to Alaska. 😦

  4. Alaska…well, first, best of luck to y’all but I know you won’t give up this blog. I know you weren’t a great fan of Texas (who could be in dallas?), so the change should do you wonders. Alaska is tough, though…

  6. Congratulations!! I am almost envious. Alaska has been on my list of places I want to live (or at least visit) for as long as I can remember.

    Now I can visit vicariously through you. 🙂

  10. Wow! Congrats to Greg. That’s a big move. We’ve been wanting to go on a cruise to Alaska. It will be great to get some new scenery. I have a friend from Anchorage, I see if she still have friends that live back home. Good Luck with the transfer!

  11. Well that certainly is a big change to get your head around, but also one that will hopefully have so many positives thrown in with it… You might wanna break out the extra thermals though… lol..

  12. Dear Hubby

    The photo opportunities are endless in Alaska. Northern Lights, Moose, Bald Eagles, Whales. All kinds of wild life not to mention the mountains and glaciers and other landscapes.

    1. April, 2011 at 18:43

    • Northern Lights !!!… That’s it, I’m sold… When do we leave ??.. I’ll even bring my own thermals… 😉

  13. You are moving to ALASKA? Really? What an exciting opportunity! Can’t wait to see your pics from there… Can hardly imagine what you have to do to prepare for your move. Sending you some energy to get all your tasks done…
