On the Road...

Yes, we are striking out to find our fortune. Okay, maybe not quite that dramatic, but with the crazy poverty-driven elements of our latest job search, we have decided to drive out to AR and maybe GA (fingers crossed). We'll be stopping off in Indiana to leave the kiddos with Ghost Grandma & Grandpa while Ghost Hunk and I head out to Arkansas for his interview. Some of you may have heard that they called him out, but at the last minute said they couldn't pay for his flight. Neither can we!

The town is supposed to be one of the best places to live in the US, though the job isn't all that GH was looking for. But it could be a good job. So why should a college's lack of funds and our poverty line keep him from potentially getting real work in this economy? So we're hitting the road. We may also get a call from GA, and with any luck, it will be a good call.

It all works out because I get to see the place and evaluate housing potential, schools, etc. AND the kids get to see their grandparents, who haven't seen them in almost a year and a half.

Will Ghost Girl be writing on this trip? You bet cha! I'm living up to Laurie Halse Anderson's WFMAD challenge. So far, I've started mapping out the main characters and some of the plot. Yikes! The Plot! That's another post. Are you WFMAD-ing?

Wish us luck in the Midwest and South East! (And pray really hard...)


  1. Continuing to pray that God leads you right where He wants you!

    Safe travels!!

  2. I wish you and your husband the best luck there is! Try to enjoy your road trip and make the most of it. Bring along the camera. Maybe the kids could create a photo journal of their adventure west. We did that with the boys one summer to stop them from thumping each other in the backseat.
    You're in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. Um, sorry, I thought you said Arizona. So, enjoy the trip south instead.

  4. Thanks, Gals! I feel the power.

    And Stella...we are going West & South! LOL. Though Arizona is awfully appealing for my RA.

    I'll keep you all posted.

  5. Good luck! Enjoy the trip and make the most of it. I'm sure everything will go really well.
