That same day Shan was offered a better position here in town that will extend our stay by another three months which we think is good even though we were ready to go yesterday.
Why? Well we can save a little more for any unexpected cost and we just want to have a cushion for our emergency fund, unforeseen trips to the kids or our families ,and it allows us to not feel rushed.
Believe me the feeling of uncertainty regarding our future is still there but our mindset has changed.
We know longer wonder about what to do in the meantime we just do what it takes to be happy from day to day while preparing for whats to come.

How great is it that just when I needed friends more than ever and having reached my lowest there they were! I expressed to them yesterday that I was so thankful for them and one of the members said to me "we are thankful for you"( insert tears). How great is it when you set out to do something for yourself that you end up helping somebody else?!

A week or so later I signed Shan and I up with a meet up group near Tyler Texas for women in alternative relationships so that we are able to socialize with people as a couple that we have more in common with. In this meetup we've gone camping and visited Canton, Texas (every bloggers heaven).Where I bought this:

Actually we have to go two hours from home just to participate but its worth it for us to be with people that we have things in common with and where we dont have to be as careful about what we do and say just feels freeing. Guess what I am trying to say is things are looking better to us we are trying to embrace life where we are right now.

I leave you with a quote that has made me see things differently about my constant anxiety regarding finding us the perfect home It reads as follows:
