All In The Details!!


So here is the low down on Jimmy's new job! He will be working at Buckley Air Force Base in the Engineering department, so he will be doing the same thing there as he was here. Where is Buckley, you ask, Aurora, Colorado! We are still waiting on his contract letter that will tell him his start date but our plan for now is that he will head out there first and then the kids and I will follow once school is out. The reality of it all hasn't really set in because I refuse to think about it. I am just living in the land of excitement that Jimmy is employed and that things are all working out. When we told the girls last night these were the reactions

Grace- "Yay, now we can get our house back!" followed by a booty dance!

Lexi- "That's awesome, oh I am so excited!!" followed a moment later with tears realizing she will be moving away.

James- he was just clapping his hands not really sure why everyone was so excited.

It truly is an answer to our prayers and honestly we have both known for a little while that Colorado is where we are supposed to be for now. With it being a government job there will be lots of opportunity for possible travel and that is exciting to me, it will also have some great benefits in the way of insurance and retirement. I am working hard at focusing on all the positives so that I don't end up a blubbering mess thinking about leaving all I have ever known since I was 6!!


For those following "Marylin's Secret" there is more to the story there!!
