Are we CRAZY!?

This is going to be quite the shock to a lot of people..... but, we're MOVING! Yes, you heard me right! Don't feel bad if we didn't tell you because we really haven't told a lot of people. The craziest part of all is that we are leaving THIS Saturday! Yep, we're crazy.

To make a long story short, Tom got laid off from his job last Thurs. We were not expecting it at all and were stunned. But, we've recently been talking about moving closer to family in Montana or Wyoming. So, we thought "What the heck, might as well move now!" After much contemplating and late night talking over the weekend, we decided we would move quickly so Tom can start looking for a job right away. We are going to stay with my parents while Tom is looking for a job either in MT or WY. Everyone keep their fingers crossed that he finds something fast so we can get settled and get out of my parent's hair.

We are really going to miss Meridian! We love our ward and won't even get to have a "last Sunday" to say goodbye. They were so good to us and esp. Jordyn. I hope they forgive us for leaving without warning. We will miss Jordyn's school so much too. I hope and pray every day that her new school will be as great as the one here..... it's gonna be hard to fill their shoes! We already plan on keeping in touch with Jordyn's aide who has been SO good to her! And not to rank this over actual human beings BUT, I have to say the thing I MIGHT miss the most is our house!!! I've loved living in such a new place! Everyone keep their fingers crossed that we can find a nice new place like this one.

So, watch out Montana or Wyoming (whichever one it may be) here we come!

WOW! I can't believe you are moving, and I know exactly how you feel about the house. I know of a company that does a lot of projects for us here at the mine and around the region. They have a office in casper, www.tic-inc.com Check it out, I hope the job hunt goes well, that is always the worst part.
