Job Search

I had an interview today to St. Davids Round Rock Medical Center. There were three positions available, one in med/surg, one in tele, and one in ortho. I wanted the one in med/surg. It is a smaller hospital. They can hold 160 patients. The med/surg floor is a 36 bed unit. The floor seems like a very nice floor to work on. Anyway the interview went well. After the interview Derek and I stopped for lunch and when I got home they called and offered me the job!

So we made it to Texas! We got in late Tuesday night. It took a lot longer than we were wanting but the rent-a-truck would only go so fast and then trying to get it up some of the hills was very slow going. Our friend Crystal flew out to drive with us. It was very nice to have someone with us that was not as stressed out as much as we were. The cars all made it until Wednesday when our Scion popped a leak in the front tire. As frustrating as that is we are blessed that we made it all the way here with that being our biggest problem. So as Derek and I were unloading the truck Crystal took the car into get a new tire.

We went to look at our house yesterday! It is slowly coming along. They have the drywall up and they were painting when we were there. It is so fun to see the process. For now we are staying at Derek's sisters house!

So in the mean time we have to start looking for jobs. Derek has been looking at several banks around here. I have an interview set up for the 28th and I am going to start looking into another hospital that is close to here.

We are very excited for a new chapter in our life!

Just playing

This is what moving to another state will do to you.

The new cover of the Next Blair Witch Project.

So this is what Derek and I do when we have time to spare before going out and all of our games are packed.

Getting ready

We are now two weeks away from moving to Texas. Things are coming together... and some things are not...

There are so many emotions all rolled into one huge event. It is sad to be leaving our family and friends and the life that we have started here. I hate saying goodbye. At the same time we are so excited to be closer to Derek's family and to be moving into our first home! Derek's Mom sent pictures of how the house it right now and it is just fun to think that they are making that house for us. We got to pick out the colors and so many things in that house to make it ours.

These a just a couple of what she sent to us!
