Update on Life Changes

Well John and I have moved. We are back in the RV in Lake Jackson, TX. We have always wanted to live near the coast, now we are. With conditions in the oil field here in Texas, we realized John's job couldn't last. So we decided to be proactive and he began looking for another job back in December or January. At first we were looking closer to Brownwood - Waco, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Austin and Abilene. However, the best jobs kept coming up in the Houston area. Also we were faced with moving expenses, transition back into the RV with extra expenses there but in Lake Jackson we have awesome friends who let us park our RV at there place and stay with them as long as necessary.

This has turned out to be a very good thing since it is taking longer than expected to get started with my full-time, permanent job with Brazoria County. I have had a hiccup in my background check that I am praying clears up next week so that I can start as originally expected on the 11th or the 18th of this month. It's never come up before, so I was a bit surprised. Right now I am working part-time/temporary with the security company that John hired on with.

This puts us closer to two of the kiddos - one in Pearland and one in Dickonson. However it places us far from the third in Brownwood. This was rather difficult since she is getting married in October and I won't be right there to help but it was something we had to do. Neither of our jobs in Brownwood had insurance, this job with the county will give us that. I guess that is it for now. Things have been rather crazy since our arrival. Hopefully I'll get into some sort of routine soon and post more frequently.
