J: You said you want to move to Kansas, right?
H: Yeah, why?
J: Well we have a problem?
H: Did you get fired?
J: We need to find a new place to have our wedding reception!
Essentially, John is getting transferred to Lawrence in as little as 3 weeks! ACK! I couldn't be more excited to be leaving shitty ass Bartlesville and heading to another college town where there will be culture, and sushi, and thai food, and a pet store, and a book store, and football games, and bars that are not in double wide trailers.
But, 3 weeks? We have to sell our house, find a new house, figure out what to do with my school, find a place to board the horse, refigure our wedding reception, etc.
On the up side, I will qualify for the first time homebuyer tax credit even though John is already a homeowner because we aren't married yet. So, next tax season, I could get a check for $8000!!! Can you say, pay off the truck and student loans??? (No, I am NOT tempted to buy another horse)
On the freakout side, what if the house doesn't sell? What if we can't come up with a down payment?
Pretty much, there is a lot that has to happen in a certain order with outside influences that we have no control over.
I have felt like a deer in headlights for the whole day, but the excitement is starting to take over...
Just yesterday I was thinking of how busy the next few months were going to be... Hold on to your hats folks, things are really going to get crazy around here!
