a very big week indeed!

It's been a fantastic week.

Thursday, we bought a house.  It's bigger, better, in a nicer area, something we've wanted and needed for a while.  We are thrilled and so excited.  It is being built and we close in August...ick, moving in August, not my pref, but we'll manage.  We will be changing schools, wards, and stakes actually, which in itself is scary, but again, we'll manage.

Friday, I got a job.  Abrazo offered me a Med-Surg/Ortho RN position at a hospital here in town.  I am super duper excited, nervous (because it is a night shift), but otherwise feeling very blessed and eager to get going.  I start in a week.

Then, we signed official paperwork on selling this home.  After 11 years of making memories here, it is time to close the chapter on this time in our lives.  We made a decent amount of $ on the sale and will now rent the house back until we move into the other.  It all worked out perfectly.  I don't need to go spastic cleaning and keep things always-in-their-place-because-the-realtor-may-show-it-to-a-prospective-buyer!  And we won't have to move twice (out of here into an apt, then into a home) which we had to do when we moved here.  And we'll have cash in hand over the next few months to prepare for and fill the new house.  Could things have worked out any more perfectly?

Feeling very blessed right now!

I have been following and enjoying your blog for a while, never commented before, however. Sounds like lots of exciting changes for you and your family! I am a social worker-turned-stay-at-home-mother-turned-RN. Been a night-shifter for about 3 years, and started a new job on a med-surg/ortho floor about 6 months ago. Congrats on your new job! You will learn SO much! Take advantage of the opportunity as an orientee to ask questions and do as much as you can! If you are as lucky as I have been, you'll have great co-workers who will always be willing to help you out.

You have a beautiful family and seem like a genuine, caring person who will be a great nurse. Best of luck to you!
