We have big and exciting news at our house, Dustin was offered and accepted a position with the Bureau of Land Management in central Wyoming, so we will be moving in January. I will live just under 4 hours from my Mom, just over 3 hours from my sister, 2 hours from my friend Brandi (her blog is Life of a New Mommy of Two), and about 4.5 hours from my youngest brother. Unfortunately we will live further from my older brother, but there is an airport near where we will live, so we can fly to Phoenix to see him. We drove there while we were back in Colorado for Thanksgiving and we love it. We were unable to find a rental for now, but the realty companies all said there would be several more before January. We will probably take another trip there in a few weeks to secure a rental.
Dustin's start date is January 28. I am excited about that as Austin's birthday is the 22nd, so we will have a big birthday/going away bash for him with all his friends before we leave. It still is hard to wrap my mind around the fact that we are moving after living here over 8 years. I guess it will settle in when the moving truck comes and takes our stuff away.
Please keep your fingers crossed for us that we are able to sell our house here. We lowered the asking price significantly as we decided it's better to take a loss and move it rather than hold out and have to pay our mortgage payment and rent.
