The big news out of our house, aside from Delphinium's ever-increasing cuteness, is that M has himself a brand new job! His old one was still good (not a lay-off or anything like that) but he wanted to try out something new. He's been with Goliath Corp. for more than a decade, and it sounded interesting to try a whole different company entirely. I'm excited that he's excited by the new challenge.
The only down-side to all this newness is that his future job will be a chunk further away from home than the one he has now. He will be experimenting with different routes, departure times, and modes of transportation until he finds the best combination. Even so, we may have to move to facilitate a more manageable commute. This too is exciting because it means we will get to explore a new area and possibly be closer to lots of the people and activities that we enjoy.
Anyway, the upshot of all this is that we are all in a state of upheaval. Everything seems exhilarating, daunting, fresh, and also uncertain. Time will answer many of our questions about what our new life might look like. However, I suspect that there are many things about which we will actively need to make choices. A small (and wimpy) part of me says "but it was just so comfy the way it was!" Then again, who wants to live in the same house, have the same job, and go the same places for their entire adult life? Not me.
