My husband is amazing and my future is uncertain...

Today my husband was officially promoted into a management position with his company back in South Carolina, which is an amazing opportunity for him. I am so proud of him, and he's worked very hard to get where he is now.

It is funny to think back over the course of our marriage and the ups and downs of finances and employment outlooks, and how given where we were when we first got married to see where we are now. On paper, we looked dicey but I know I married someone that was smart and hardworking, and good things happen when you are willing to put in the effort. He is amazing and we've completely blown past what our ten year plan was ten years ago... It is time to write a new plan and see if we can leapfrog those goals as well.

But still, it means that instead of being able to throw open our options to anywhere in the country we are faced with some hard choices. My options are to try to find something within commuting distance to where our house is (in Columbia, SC), pursue part-time travel jobs with Columbia as my home base, live apart from my husband (again) until something comes up in Columbia, or... become a housewife (this one is probably not going to happen, I can't picture myself not working).

  1. Congratulations to Robert!

    Here's hoping that you can find something that will allow you to at least gain experience in your field, if not with the pay/benefits that you were looking for. Living apart for longer just doesn't sound fun. :^(
