Today is Thursday. The next time it is Thursday, I will finish with my consulting project. The time after that I will move to a new city and the next I will start my new job. I am measuring life by Thursdays until further notice (most likely September).

Drumroll please......

Blane and I will be moving to Conroe, Texas in 15 days.Oh, you've never been? Neither had I. It is 40 miles north of Houston, pretty close to The Woodlands. I have accepted a position as the Director of Marketing for a small-medium size private company. It is going to be a very challenging, exciting, and fun opportunity, and I can't wait to get started. I start on September 1st, by the way. We signed the lease on our 3 bed/2 bath rental house today. It has an amazing deck and a huge master bedroom. I will post lots of pics once we get in and settled. Btw, house hunting is fun for a day. Then it becomes exhausting. We are very happy with our choice, though. It is about 4 miles from my office, which will be an incredible change for me. For those of you who don't know, I have been commuting. A LOT. The place I interned with 06/10-04/11 was 61 miles from the apartment (about 1.5 hours in DFW land); SMU took about an hour to get to; My consulting gig is about 40 minutes away. Now, I can give the Accord a little break. The only uncertainty we have is Blane's possible commute. He is currently searching for a position in the area, and I am hoping he can find something fairly close so neither of us has a long drive. We are excited about the changes we are facing and can't wait!

Big news! I accepted a job offer yesterday!!!!!!!
More details to come (where, when, etc...)
We are on day 2 of house hunting and it's going pretty well. We have it narrowed down (we think) to about 3 we really like. I will try to not keep everyone in suspense for very long, but I want to wait until we have a place to move and have all the details ironed out. We are elated to have a plan and just in time, too!! Our lease at our apartment is up in 25 days. I, as an OCD controller/planner, was having an excrutiating time not knowing what our plan was going to be in a month. But, as God always does, He knew what was right for us and made me have patience. This job has been in the works since the end of April, and finally everything fell into place. I have known it was the one I wanted all along, but was trying to not get my hopes up, in case it was not the one that was right.
We will be moving (if you know where we are this weekend, I guess you know where!). I am about to wake Blane up and hopefully land a house today.
More details soon! Promise!!!
