Well, I have left a picture trail the last couple of days to tell the story of our new big adventure! First the train, then the state of Illinois and finally the biggest clue a for sale sign. So this adventure started a month or so ago when Justin applied for a claims position with BNSF (Burlington Norther Santa Fe Railroad). Long story short, many interviews later he was offered a position with them based in Galesburg, IL. Oh, how ironic. Justin is very excited about this new opportunity. We were able to get our house ready for the market over Labor Day weekend when my parents were here and we have been waiting for everything to be finalized. We hope to have the house on the market this week and Justin will be starting his new job on October 1! We are soooooooooooooooooo excited to be moving back to Illinois. We are not sure exactly where we are going to choose to live. We are leaning towards the Dunlap area. To top things off and this is way more than the icing on the cake, I will be staying home with Maddie, Clayton and Keely. MY DREAM! I hope to be able to do some work for IR from home too, but I will for sure not be going into an office and there will be no daycare! I have to say my husband is the best!
My advise, make your new years resolutions in July! I said I wouldn't live in St. Louis for 10 years and I will be out of here before I make it to 8! I will say there are many people and some things I will miss here. Mostly people. I will talk about that in a later post. For now we are on cloud 9 and in a tornado at the same time!
Have a great week and Illinois get ready the Murphys are coming home!
