Wait...What? It's Labor Day?!

Let me begin by apologizing for the long absence. I have written many a posts in my mind but when I sat down to write nothing would come out. The fact of the matter is that I am so type-A that my picture should really be next to the phrase in some psych journal and August came in like a hurricane, Danielle or Earle take your pick, and left my life a whirlwind of disruption. It has been very hard this month to have so much out of control and up in the air....we're talking rocking myself in the corner hard...but I am going to continue to rest on the Lord and know that His plans are perfect even though they don't fit into the plan book that I have, color-coded and all!

In June my husband found out that a transfer that he put in for at work went through meaning that we had the opportunity to move to Cape Cod, something that would put us much closer to down the street closer to some! The only issue was that I couldn't find a job and many school systems wouldn't even call me back. Then I threw up one more "hail Mary" pass to a town on Cape called Harwich and well two weeks ago they called me back. Now let me paint this picture for you...I went to the interview with the mindset of "There is no way in H-E-double hockey sticks that I am taking this job! It is only 2 weeks before the start of the school year, we have no where to live, and no one to watch Emma....oh and I have NO CLUE where I am most of the time!" I left the interview and one of the people literally ran after me to give me the job on the spot...salary I wanted...slam dunk of a job. The very next day we found a great house just 2 miles from my in laws and about 200ft from my Aunt and Uncle. And here I am typing away no longer a resident of the North Shore of Boston but a Cape Codder...something this Newport girl never thought she would say.

While my type-A self is screaming at the top of her lungs and needing a corner to rock in, the rest of me is surprisingly calm. I am amazed that among all of this I have managed to get in about 124 miles in August. This could be a reason why I am so calm. I just feel a peace though that this is where we have been called to go, we listened, and I just trust that blessings beyond what I know are going to follow.

I would be silly if I didn't acknowledge the fact that I am going to miss my North Shore friends like CRAZY!!! My two friends Carrie and Jill have been amazing and I couldn't have imagined my life without them! They have always been there to help no matter what I needed! I will miss them but promise to cut them at their knees if they don't come and visit! Jill has been such a blessing as my running buddy too! She is a major reason why my total is up to 124 miles this month and my blood pressure has remained low! I am not going to even attempt to find another Jill because she is going to be visiting often....or at least she better!!! I thank God for putting these two in my life!!!

So now that things are getting more settled, I promise to blog more....I really do! Here's to new adventures....and new blessings!
