It's official! We are moving. Around the end of the school year we will already have begun the process of transferring to our nations capital. Washington D.C. This move was not expected and really didn't think that it was in our cards but none the less this is where we are destined to go.
I believe we are being sent there to fore-fill a purpose. Just like we were sent to NJ.
I will never forget the day Mike told us we were going to Philly. I laughed and immediately thought of Nicole Reaves. She had the great pleasure of being involved during my first transfer with Mike. Her husband Charles and mine worked together in Corpus Christi. Nicole and I worked together under the umbrella company that shall never be named. (She helped me get the job!) Anyway, Nicole called me up one day while I was at home. She said "Girl, has your husband called you?" Me, I said no with question of what was going on. She told me that orders came in and how pissed I was going to be. I begged her to tell me, promising that I would never tell. She tells me Humboldt, CA. She continues to tell me how awful it is and mind as well be living in Seattle. So I promise to not say a word. We hang up.....
I'm sitting there thinking how bad can it be... It must be bad if Nicole called me to warn me.
Just then my phone is ringing.... My husband calls and tells me to sit down. He tells me that the orders came in and I love my husband to death I really do, but he takes 10,000 years to get the news out. He says that we are moving to Key West. (Ohhhh I love it there 6 months of beautiful)
So you can imaging the surprise on my face when he tells me we are moving to PHILLY!!! I think great he will joke and tell me we got someplace at least a little warmer..... NOPE. He was telling the truth. WHERE IS THE COAST IN PHILLY????
Needless to say we learned quickly where our coast was going to be. The Delaware River and his station at Delaware bay in Philadelphia, PA.
We chose to live over the bridge in NJ. I am NOT going to tell you how much I hate NJ or cut it down. I met a few moms here that have made this stay a great one. Lisa, Mandy and Jeanette. They are truly great. The good news of all this is that we get to have just a little more time to share till we leave and Washington DC is just a couple hours from where our friends and family live.
