Back to the Carolinas

I can finally make an official announcement that we are moving to South Carolina!  Robert has taken a new job in Myrtle Beach that not only brings us a little closer to home, but also puts us near our restaurant in Georgetown.  Robert gave his notice today and plans to work out the last two weeks - we will be moving the last week of May and Robert starts with his new company June 1st.

I was able to keep my writing gig with the publishing company I work for and I am really happy about that.  I also plan to work part-time at our restaurant.  We are still currently looking for a place to live which is becoming extremely frustrating.  We obviously don't have much time left so it's crucial we find something fast.  We are looking in the Murrells Inlet/Surfside area so we can be somewhere in the middle between Robert's job and the restaurant.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we find something by the middle of next week.

All in all, I am thrilled about this change.  Robert's new job provides a Monday-Friday, 9-6 schedule which is completely unheard of in his industry.  We may actually have a normal family life.  It will be nice to have my husband around more and for us to be able to spend more time together as a family.  I couldn't be happier about that.  With another baby on the way, this move couldn't come at a better time.  Looks like we might finally be planting some roots!
