Some months feel fly by swiftly and drag at the same time. This is one of those seasons. A few weeks ago I took my MPJE for NC. I was a nervous wreck, its been five years since I studied for my SC MPJE and I was afraid I forgot how. I had loads of odd questions and felt like I failed, but 4 days later I found out I passed with flying colors! I started the process 5 months ago and it will be a relief to have it completed. Tomorrow, I travel to Chapel Hill for my license and I'll officially be able to work in NC (read: find a job in NC and expand my search criteria).
Meanwhile, I've been had interviews and (another offer!) that came faster than I expected. Too fast, I suppose, as I'm not in a place to accept them just yet. We decided to list the house and sell before moving to avoid the two-mortgage/rent-per-month hassle. Its the wise thing to do, but I'm so done with current work drama/issues its terribly difficult to be an adult and suck it up. I don't want to talk about it on the Internet, especially while I'm still employed. Maybe a juicy post will come later. All I want is to complain, whine and storm out, but I'm trying to think of my family and the long-term solution. The last few weeks we've tackled painting, yard work, de-cluttering, and packing up unnecessary things to ready the house for showings. Tomorrow, the house goes on the market.
And of course, my kiddos continue to grow and blossom. My baby boy turned FIVE. My daughter is talking up a storm and doing well in school. My husband keeps me grounded and nurtures our family. We have positive events despite the storms we are weathering.
The few years have been rough, but there is a change coming. I pray it will be a good one for myself my family, and my career. Please pray with us that our house will sell quickly. Please pray a job opens up in a location that is best for my family. Please pray I don't lose my mind before either one of those come to fruition.
