So, last night in my list of what I was getting ready for I said that I would write a blog post about some big changes that are starting in our lives this week. So here it is.
Tomorrow Gabe has his first day at his new job. That's right, he got a new job! I'm so super excited for him and for us. Our daily schedule is going to be a bit different, but it'll all work out. We are just so excited to start a new chapter in our lives and work towards more new things. Since the job is a bit of a commute we are going to be moving eventually. We have talked some and think that it would be best to save up to buy a place. We have lived in rentals for the past 6 1/2 years and would like to own our own place soon. I hope that we get to move to the town I am more in favor of since it would be closer to most of my friends from mommy group. Overall, I'm just really really excited and super proud of Gabe.
Since things are changing I have made some decisions for myself. I have decided to put off going back to school for awhile. I have decided that for now I am going to focus on being a stay-at-home and finish my book (finally). I'm also seriously considering homeschooling Lincoln. I am just not comfortable with sending him off to school anytime soon and I feel that he would get a better education from homeschooling. The town I want to move to has a homeschooling school that I plan to look into very soon. I am happy with all of these changes and I am very happy with the choices I have made for my own future. I know that I said in a previous post that I wanted to open up my own cupcakery, but I would rather work from home I've realized.
I'm proud of us for making all of these choices and for all of these exciting changes. I'm proud of Gabe for finding a really good new job and I just cannot wait to see what else this year brings us!
