We have arrived safely in Kansas!!

Sweet internet there you are.... Its amazing how I took the internet for granted. Like I have NEVER gone a day without it, so needless to say the last 5 days without have been CRAZY!!

I am working on our trip recap which went off without a hitch. Other than the hotel from hell that warrants its very own post.

We are here. We have found a beautiful place to live for the next 12 months, hopefully we will find a house sooner than that but they have VERY strict lease agreements here and to break it would cost us over $3000. So umm yeah we have waited 5 years another year will not kill us.

I am starting work tomorrow. My part time job is a HUGE chain and I was able to transfer out here so I have something to start with. I am actively pursuing a full time job but the market right now is really tough. Will so many lay offs all over the place, I have not even heard from 1 job as of yet. I have applied for well over 20 already. I have had about 6 hits back from employment agencies and with my experience I WILL NOT use one again. I had a really bad experience 3 times now so I figure I am better off on my own.

The hubby is trying to keep my spirits up and explain the job market is very different out here than it was in the small town we lived in.

But I will keep my chin up. What is meant to be will be. I am blessed with already having a job that is going to give me all the hours I want, but I would really like to get something back in an office... I have LOTS of shoes to buy!!

Howdy neighbor!

I am so glad to hear that you guys made it safely to Kansas! Good luck on the job hunt. I know it’s rough out there right now, but you are right. What will be will be. At least you have a paying job for the time being.
