No News.

Isn't the general rule of thumb that "no news is good news?" Not in this case :(

I haven't had any news to share. And that's a bad thing :(

Ryan didn't get the Florida job. We're bummed. We let ourselves get too excited. I was even dreaming ahead to next July (our anniversary to be exact). I was thinking how we could DRIVE an hour to Cape Canaveral, hop on a last minute cruise at 150 bucks a person and THAT would be our anniversary trip... versus the exciting Detroit zoo trip we're about to take. (sarcasm)

Oh well... we shall press on. It's much harder for Ryan than it is for me. He's working a thankless job (that DOES pay the bills- and for that we're thankful) but the actual job is thankless. Ryan has worked TOO hard for TOO long to still be at Culligan doing grunt work. It seems like the general order of things should be as follows:
Go to college. Work hard. Graduate. Get degree. Apply for a job. Get said job. Life is good- no worries about health insurance, house payments, cars running, etc. Apparently that's not how things work.

Things aren't all glum around here- don't get me wrong- we're happy and we know there is a reason we're here (in Jackson that is). Ryan keeps telling me "something good is going to happen." I'm waiting...

I hear you too well sister. I keep praying for our families, it's been a tough few months! I take sooo much comfort in knowing that God has a perfect plan for all of us, and although OUR plans may seem exactly what we want/need, He has a reason for every last thing, good and bad that comes our way. That faith, though tough tough tough to believe sometimes, is ALL that has gotten me through. I hope you take comfort in it too! There IS something better just waiting for all of us!!!!!!! The waiting part sucks bad though :)
Love to you, Ry, the kids and your parents!!!!!!!

oh ash...we're in the exact same boat you are in. And you're right, you're where you are supposed to be right now. God has a plan. That's what we keep telling ourselves when jobs don't work out and we haven't been able to move where we have wanted to move. It's SO hard but we're where we are supposed to be now and God most definitely knows what we want, what we need and what His plan is for us...we just gotta keep doing what He wants us to do and enjoy where we are NOW. :)

Eeeek I am sorry :( Life is funny isn't it? But there must be some kind of other plan for you and your family. I so believe in things happening for a reason. Like how I haven't been on birth control of any sort for 7 months and I am not pregnant yet! Ha. Must not be the right time ya know? And I am okay with that! Nolan is toughie!!! Not sure I am ready...
