We're NOT moving!!

Ok, remember how I said that I had some big things in the works. Here's one of them: my husband was flown out to San Francisco to interview for a job at Men's Wearhouse as their e-mail marketing guru (I'm sure that's the technical term for it. LOL!) The intial offer included moving to California.

I don't like the work of moving, but I LOVE the adventure. :) Silly me. We did a great deal of research on the area. Brett served his LDS mission in that same area, and we love it. I totally miss temperate weather I tell ya.

After a great deal of research and number crunching we decided it would be a really bad time to put our house on the market. I'm not even sure we would break even with the current market conditions, and it just didn't seem like a good idea. Lots of prayers and fasting involved in our decision for sure.

Our oldest did NOT want to move, and I don't blame her. But after some discussion, they are going to let him work from home. I am so happy. Brett is thrilled!! He works really well from home, and I have never minded having him around so we're very happy.

But the stress of the waiting and figuring things out and trying to decide was VERY stressful. Plus we still have a few other things on the table right now (more to come of that later) so it's just been a long month, and I'm so tired.

On another note, what are you reading right now? My online friend Nikki posted this question at http://www.creativexpress.com/, and I wondered myself. I love a good fantasy read, but I've been reading a lot of young adult fiction as it tends to be a bit cleaner than adult fantasy. Here's some series that I REALLY recommend.

The Percy Jackson series
The Children of the Lamp series
The Bartimaeus Trilogy
The Fablehaven Series
The Septimus Heap Series
The Twilight Series (more for adults, and it's about vampires)

I love devouring a good read. Makes the stress of the day go away (when I'm not too tired at night to read).

So what are you reading? Have any of you read The Alchemist? We're reading that for book club and wanted to see what you thought.

Oh and the photo at the top of the post is of a CTR ring, which means "Choose the Right." I think we chose the right by wanting to stay here in Utah (at least for now). You never know. Hee, hee.

  1. It's always such a relief when things work out the way they are supposed to and when we follow the spirit in our decisions.

    I LOVED The Alchemist. Absolutely wonderful book...and kind of about that same theme of following the spirit as we make decisions.

  3. I am SOOO in love with the Twilight Saga. I am re-reading it now. Just biding my time until The Host comes out as well. So excited to get tickets to Stephanie Meyer's Denver signing!
