Things are settling down...

Well, we've had time to breathe now and things are starting to settle down. Everyone has been so fantastic and helpful after our little crisis spin-out last week. The real estate agent has found us a place to live ($50 per week more than we were paying but in a great area), and everyone who Paul works with have welcomed him back with open arms. Makes us feel all warm and fuzzy....

Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave comments and well wishes here on my blog. It really means a lot and you are all sooooo supportive and encouraging.... THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Isn't this blog world wonderful?

We're staying at Mum and Dad's place for a couple of weeks until we move into our new house - it becomes available around the 5 November so we'll be moving in around then. I'm dreading the whole 'unpacking' thing but can't wait to get settled and get life back to normal.

Can you believe that on Monday the company called Paul again and said "It's all back on now" and wanted him to go ahead as planned?!! We had already gone into crisis mode, found a new house, Paul had asked for his old job back and they expected us to just drop everything again to move to Mackay?! Well - it was kind of an agonising decision with so much money being offered but in the end we just decided to cut ties with them and stay right where we are. What a rollercoaster ride this last week has been! But we're happy with our decision and we'll just have to make the most of what money we do have coming in now - it'll be tricky paying more rent now being on the same money as before but I'm sure we'll work through it...

So anyway - we're going to enjoy our little holiday visiting 'Nanna V & Grandpa' then we'll be into our new place before we know it.... Hope everyone is having a great week!

Take care everyone!

  5. Oh my goodness Sheree, how could they offer it again??!! That almost seems mean to put you all through having to make the decision again. Looks like you are supposed to be where you are though....I'm sure it will be the right decision.
