Josh and Rachels Scary, Exciting Adventure!

Thursday, February 09, 2012

In some ways this seems fast, in other ways it seems like it's taken forever. My husband and I have been trying to get a work contract in Virginia for a couple months now. We got held up by everything possible along the way.

Well... it's finally happened! emoticon We will be there for 3.5 months. I'm really nervous, excited, scared, and yes... a little sad. I'm already starting to feel homesick, but I know this is a fantastic opportunity for us to pay off debt, pay off school loans, and start to save for our future. $$$$$

Also, once I adjust, it will be an amazing adventure for us as a couple too--getting to live in a new place, be financially independent (since we got married we have lived in a house his parents own), and learn to rely on each other and grow even closer. emoticon

BUT IT's SOOO SCARY TOO!!! emoticon

We start a week from today! That means we will try to be down there in 4-5 days.

And we don't even know where we will live yet!

And we're moving over 400 miles away~! emoticon

More on topic for Spark people, they don't have any Snap Fitness locations down there so we will have to find a way to work out... then again with 60 degree weather emoticon we can be more active outside
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

One step at a time! Today: Work, paperwork, 6 mile run! Happy Thursday everyone! emoticon

    Virginia is a lot nicer than I imagined. If you're moving to the Hampton Roads Area, I'd highly recommend OneLife Fitness. They have six locations and I can't think of anything negative about them.
