One Big Change

"Nothing is permanent in this world but change." At some point in our lives, we've experienced changes. We make important decisions in life that would result to life-altering changes. Some are good, others are bad. Regardless of the outcome, we feel proud of ourselves for having the courage to try something new. If you're a regular on my blog, I'm sure you know that me and hubby have been preparing so much for our upcoming wedding in the Philippines. If you've been married, you realize how stressful wedding preparations can be. Little did we know that in addition to the busy wedding preparations, we are going to face one big change in one month's time. My hubby has been offered a job in Bull Shoals, Arkansas and he accepted it. We are leaving Ozark and would start anew in another small town in Arkansas. We are both excited and nervous about the move and the change of environment. He has been looking for a job outside Ozark for quite sometime now. He had turned down job opportunities in South Dakota and Washington state in the past because of the apparent cold climate of SD and the dry climate in that part of Washington. We thought it would take a while before he could find a better powerhouse to transfer. So we are really thankful that he got accepted in Bull Shoals. We don't know so much about the place yet, but the basic information that we have is enough for us to decide that it's time to make that one big change. Bull Shoals is like 3 hours and 30 minutes away from Ozark and a few degrees cooler which is a good thing in the summertime but probably a curse to me in the winter. We'll be driving there tomorrow to look at the area and hopefully scout a nice place to rent.

@Grampy
-hello. thanks for visiting. im sure it's scary and stressful especially we have not decided which house to stay yet but we're working on it. the job is the same, it's just a change of the working environment and it's also with the same company, the U.S. Corps of Engineers. so it's basically just a lateral transfer. we're excited about the new place though hope it turns out fine.

@recel
-hi sis. yeah more than anything else, it's hubby's dream to try a different powerhouse. yep, bull shoals is in northern arkansas, it's only 10 miles away from the AR-Missouri stateline. mao lage, i'll be so busy jud in the next few weeks. 2 weeks after hubby starts with the new job, i'll be going to the PI na pud so when we get back nalang from the wedding, we could start unpacking and making our new place livable, lol.

You deserve nothing but the best, Sis!

Goodluck and Best Wishes!

@elaine
-hi sis. thanks for the comment. yeah it might sound sudden but actually hubby has been looking for another powerhouse to transfer to for quite some time now. he works with the government so development is slow. it just happens that we got the results that he got the job almost the same time as our Philippine vacation. talk about perfect timing, hehe. we're nervous but we're fine. we're hoping for the best.

It will really be a big change ate Jhen and will take some time to finally get comfortable to a new place.

Just like us, we thought we are going to be moving to a new place due to work, but then we realized that we cant just leave Chetopa that easy. hehehehe... Although, I would like to experience living in a new place like SD, Montana, or Nebraska.. hehehe People are so nice out there! Good Luck ate Jhen and Jeff!

jenn_US said...

@adin
-hi gang. yeah i know it will take some time getting used to. pero ive lived here in ozark for 2 years na man pud then small town man pud ni ozark so i think ill be fine in bull shoals, hehe.

primary reason of our moving is jeff getting a job there. if it hadnt for the job, we would not have moved yet but we're really planning to get out of ozark. brrrrr katugnaw ba anang mga places na imong gipanghinganlan oi, hehe.

take care adin and regards to tim and bb HF.
