This week, I started at our new location in Commerce, CA.
Not only do I have to start driving to work everyday (instead of being dropped off by my wonderful husband), but it also adds at least another 35 minutes traveling time for each way.
I know my drive isn’t even half as far as my other co workers (one girl took 3 1/2 hours to come to work on monday because it was raining), but man, I’m tired when I get home.
I miss being home by 7:25, now I get home at almost 8pm. I miss my hubby and kids dropping me off at work and picking me up and go do family night or errands together. I miss having breakfast with my hubby and with my daughter after we drop Aaron off at school. I miss having hubby come see me for lunch twice a week.
The good news is that he’s still gonna try to come at least once a week to meet me for lunch, yay!
It’s been so difficult finding my way around our new work place, but the drive and time away from my family is the worst part of it. I’m still grateful for a JOB!
So, in order to lessen the craziness of our drive, we have made a decision last Sunday that we’re moving!
We were gonna look for a place in Glendale (close to my son’s school and close to my in laws) to cut us a good 20-25 mins drive back and forth.
Sunday, started looking for a place. Monday, we found an interesting apartment and set up an appointment to see it. Tuesday, we came to see it and signed an application form. Wednesday, turned in a few more needed paperwork and we got approved!
We picked up the keys yesterday and showed the kids our new place! We start moving today!
It’s amazing how things work out when it’s surrounded by prayer. Our move was almost an impulsive decision but we asked for prayers immediately as soon as we made our consideration and we’re now moving less than a week later!
God’s grace is so sufficient!
