The First Quarter Of 2014

Friday, April 25, 2014

A little back history.
My Husband and I moved in May 2012 for a job. It was for around two years. We decided to rent out our house we we moved so we would have to worry about it. ( its to a good friend so she deals with any problem that come up)

Fast forward to this year, Oh how my life has changed in the last couple of months. My husband was laid off at the end of January. Which we knew was going to happen it just happened a month earlier than planned.

The Job we were planning to go to was delayed so we decided to go back to your home town for a bit and stayed at my parents. We found out the job has been delayed to fall or winter. It was a stressful stay, trying to figure out what to do.

He was offered at job for 6-8 months in Cold Lake Alberta we starting looking for a house to rent well that wasn't going to happen insane house prices so we decided to buy a travel trailer which we are now living in.

We moved 2 times in two months and will be moving again in 6-8 months so that will total 3 times in one year. We're hoping the delayed job will be up and running by the time is one ends. It's suppose to be a 3 year job. Its about an hour outside of Edmonton Alberta. Which means we could actually plan a normal life there.

This is going to be one of the most stressful years of my life I think.

    Moving is hard and stressful. Hopefully it will all work out as planned and you will be able to stay at your next place for three years. Good luck! emoticon
