Say What?

I realize I haven't been posting much,
but I refuse to bitch and moan on every single blog post. 
That's what Twitter and Facebook are for! ha

Anyways, things are starting to get better out here.
I decided to go back to being a server. 
I swore I was never going to do that.
But when you have no income coming in, and it will be the difference
between trying again next cycle or not, there wasn't even a second thought.
Plus, I'm only working lunches, and still making decent money, so it's not horrible..
aside from serving assholes, and dealing with a management team that has no idea what they are doing.

Travis' job though has taken a bit of a turn. 
He was approached last week to interview for a general manager position that is available.
We were both a little shocked. 
Not because he doesn't deserve it, he really does, but because we have only been here 7 weeks!
His interview is Friday. 
Any prayers you could spare would be very much appreciated. 
This position would mean more nights at home, and a pretty decent raise.
And that right now would be such a huge blessing. 
Plus it would open doors for us when we are able to move back to California.

Today however he was approached by his area director as well as another area director.
Basically, he would be guaranteed a general manager position if we were willing to relocate...
to Arkansas!
Travis said he nearly crapped his pants when they told him that.
Once the shock of the location wore off, we talked about it.
I can't believe I am saying this, but we are open to hearing more about it.
He will get more details Friday at his interview. 
It's my understanding if he took the position, we would be moving rather soon.

We were talking tonight about how we think this move was the right decision.
In such a short time frame there have been so many opportunities presented to Travis.
Opportunities that we wouldn't have had in California. 
We are so thankful for these blessings and opportunities. 


  1. I am so proud of both of you. I know good things will happen! Miss you both and can't wait for you to move home! XO

  2. Jenn, it really just depends on what PART of Arkansas. I grew up there and while it sucked, there are some great places to be. Hell, I'm in Memphis so at least you'd have a friend close? hehe

    I've lived in Dallas, Arkansas, Tennessee and southern cali... we have commonalities ;)

  3. I thought this link might be helpful to you with the possibility of moving to Arkansas in the future. Arkansas has an insurance mandate that IVF be covered. Best of luck to Travis in his interview!

  4. Glad things seem to be turning around. Missed your posts!! Good luck!
