To describe the past few months as tumultuous would not be hyperbole. We are slowly attempting to move our cramped, country lives approximately 100 miles north to the land of concrete, toll roads and Trader Joes. We have both secured jobs in what we Virginians refer to as NOVA (NOrthern VirginiA for those playing at home) and have started a serious search for an apartment that will take our 115 pound Crashy-butt and make our commute much shorter than the current 2 hour one-way trek. I think this blog will be a reflection of what is happening both move-wise and career-wise. I am no longer working in a childcare setting, and have instead found a wonderful position in a sweet and bustling community branch of the Fairfax Library System. I have been there for a week and have found the change to be more refreshing than any vacations I’ve had in a while. It is overwhelming at times to realize that I am being paid for something I enjoy so much. I hope this feeling of elation continues as my career develops, because it is one I would love to keep clutched tightly in my heart. We’ve moving up, and it’s about damn time.
