Life changing news

This morning, my husband was offered an extremely good job on a large heavy jet with an airline in the Gulf. Words can't describe how tremendously proud of him I am. We'd got to the point where we thought he would never be able to get another job. Our financial future looked horribly bleak.

Still, this offer brings mixed feelings for us both. It means moving our entire lives to another continent, leaving my job, our home, and our families behind. Everything that we take for granted in our day-to-day lives will have to change. To say I'm nervous would be an understatement.

Still, we're in this together, and I can't think of a man I'd rather move to another continent with than my loving, caring, funny, clever (not to mention gorgeous) husband. We're going to talk about this, but I expect in the end the answer will be yes. It's just too good an opportunity to turn down. So our journey into the big, wide, exciting unknown begins here....


  1. Congratulations! I'm so happy to hear that he was successful finding an aviation job right now. I've had several pilot friends considering the option of airlines in the Gulf. I wish you all the best with your relocation and move.

  2. I have been reading your blog for a while now but I have never commented. I just wanted to say Congratulations! I am terribly happy for you, good luck with everything!!!! xx

  3. FANTASTIC NEWS! Don't forget to pack your bucket & spade! How exciting.-I'm sure you guys will love the experience!

  4. Wow! that's great news. I can't believe you will hav eto move to the Gulf. I am lucky that even though my husband's job takes him far away to another country that I didn't have to pick up my life to move there. Since he is home for a month and gone a month it doesn't effect us too much (living in the states or in another country), just the travel time for him... Which admittedly is the worst part of his job.

    Good luck to you and the move (if it all works out as planned). I know I would move to be with my husband too. He's worth it.

  5. I read some of your entries a month or two ago when things were looking quite bleak. I'm really pleased to see this news, and I hope it will work out fantastically for both of you.

  6. Wow - congratulations! I'm hoping that the move will go smoothly for you both.
