Job Search Update

So... life in the Dreyer world has become a little crazy as we search for jobs, houses, schools.... I don't really like the idea of not knowing where we will be living 3 months from now. Amanda didn't get her #1 choice job at Denver Children's Hospital... we're still looking in Denver, but it's not looking too promising as they don't pay their school SLP's very well. We are still looking in NM, but the housing prices are still exorbitant so we would have to find a great deal. We have now added options 3 and 4. Option 3 is in Orlando... Amanda was offered a part time position with a great Auditory verbal therapy company that would pretty much be an incredible opportunity except that I would need to find additional part time work so that we could afford to live... the good thing is Florida pays their school and preschool SLPs very well... so after sending out 10 resumes and applications last night, hopefully I can find something. Option 4 is a Children's Hospital in Tulsa Oklahoma... random... this position was passed onto me from a geriatric hospital that wanted to recruit me in OK City so I applied just to see what happens. Jeff joked Sunday night that maybe we need to move to Alaska.... I know God has a sense of humor, but OH MY... I was kinda freaking out about Colorado... I wear sweats and have to have a blanket in our house when the air is below 70! Justin is pretty much content to go where I can get the best job and he can finish his degree although he's really pulling for Colorado Anyways... all this to say we need some prayer (that we sell our house, that we end up where God wants us, and that we "aka me" will be patient and learn to trust God through this)

Sorry about the Denver job. Don't you just hate waiting to know. I am like you I want it all laid out in advance for a couple of months. Good luck. We are praying for you.

i was searching back thru you rblog to see if you ever posted on why you're moving. when i first started reading, you guys were moving to hobbs so i figured there was something specific there. now that i see you have feelers out all over, i was just curious about if your move is more of a "leaving arkansas" thing rather than a "moving to a specific location" type of thing. sorry for sounding nosey... it's just relevant to something i've been praying about for a while...
