Changes are coming

I can't say what right now because I don't know exactly what. Dave & I are fine, stressed, but banded together as we always have been. The job is still far, far too many hours with little hope of becoming better. He recently worked over 170 hours in a 2 week period. His stress level is through the roof. The difficult, stressful parts of the job are really outweighing the positive. While I don't dislike it here, there are some disappointments. Dillon-super social Dillon- has had trouble really finding friends. She has a few, but it isn't coming together for her like it did in NH, and we see her lonliness in the behavior difficulties we've had since moving here. She will still, out of the blue, say she wants to go back to NH.

So, we're trying to figure out what's next. We've made amazing progress on bills and will have all credit card and bank loans (thought not student loans) paid off within the next 4-5 months. There's money going to retirement funds and we have money in savings again.

We've been struggling with this for a long time and it's steadily becoming clearer that the current situation isn't working for us. So, changes are coming- we just have to figure out what they are.

So sorry that you're going through this difficult time, Wendy.

Let me know if you want to get together sometime to unwind a bit and catch up. We have a fenced in back yard, three swings, two slides, and the like -- should be able to keep the kids all busy and safe.

Big hugs Wendy. I remember how hard it was for Desmina coming here. She still cries for NH and she was there much shorter time than you. Do you have my number? You can call me anytime if you need a friend.
