I am still jobless over a month into our move to Georgia. This is stressful because:
1) we live with my in-laws which is fine but I miss having our own space and our own furniture;
2) not having a job sounds all fine and dandy but I AM SO BORED. I really need to get out of the house more and I need to work;
3) we can’t really look into moving into our own place until I have a job because we don’t know which area to move to that will be convenient for both my husband’s and my commute.
We’ve made it! It’s been a few weeks but we’re now (mostly) settled in Georgia. We’re currently living with my husband’s dad and step-mom and I don’t have a job but that’s okay.
Getting to the point where we felt “settled” was long and arduous. We drove from Texas to Birmingham in one day to see my brother’s family (in addition, my mom was also visiting them during this time). We stayed there for two nights then continued into Atlanta.
This time next week I will officially be unemployed. My husband has decided to accept a job offer in Atlanta, GA so we will be moving in about a week and half. I am incredibly excited but I am also SO OVERWHELMED. So instead of doing things I was supposed to do today, I went back to sleep after my husband left for work for a 2.5 hour nap and decided to write in the blog I haven’t touched in about a year to avoid packing and other errands.
Ugh, for a (sort of) librarian I hate the feeling of pausing mid-book. My husband and I completed our move last week and he started his new job today. Today was my first official day as a stay-at-home (aka seeking employment) wife! I have an interview this afternoon so here’s praying.
I had about 10 drafts for books that I read last year and wanted to review, but seeing as that didn’t happen and a lot of time has passed since then, we’re just going to move forward! Keeping up with a blog during school (by choice) and with working two jobs proved to be incredibly difficult. We’ll see how it goes this time around.
Last weekend I graduated with my Masters in Library Sciences. Now the job hunt begins for a full-time position!
I began this blog as a required project for my Children’s Literature class at the University of North Texas. However, along the way I accumulated many followers and I found that, Surprise! I loved talking, and writing, about books that I love. Coming from a book selling background and entering the library field, I could talk about books all day. So why not continue? What is there to lose?
I will continue to blog about books that I have read, new and old – children’s, young adult, and adult titles.
