I’ll love it even more in about 5 years when it doesn’t get played with, LOL. I think I’m done! The tree is up, the Nativity is up, stockings are up, other cute little pieces are out…
So I filed my unemployment claim today and applied for 3 jobs like the state requires. I found TWO of the three in Lean Healthcare! How exciting to know that my “passion” exists outside of manufacturing and hi-tech!
Well, I haven’t talked about this much, but there’s a chance that the Woodsman might become an Alaska State Trooper. We should know for sure in a week or so if he’ll be invited for an interview. So we’ve been doing some contingency planning in the event that he’s fortunate enough to be offered a spot at the academy (successful completion of which is a spot on the force).
At any rate, the plan would be for me (and the boys) to stay here while I go to school, and Nate would do training and work while I finish the degree.
Since my classes start at 4, and are about 35-40 minutes away, and Cosmo gets home at 3:30-3:40… we’re thinking we’ll need a nanny. Someone to come here and take care of the boys.
And… Swing will start Kindergarten in a year and a half, so depending on his hours, I might need someone home for him, too.
Lots to think about there.
This plan (assuming a move to Alaska is in our future) also minimizes the family time spent living in the bush. Though I think living in a remote area will be good for us… it will be nice to have a shorter “required” stay before making the decision to stay remote or not. Though I’m thinking if I’m going to work, we’ll have to live in a larger city.
Or… we could stay here. Either way, we’ll be doing just fine. :D
