Because this morning, The Auditor recieved a telephone call…from the people he interviewed with…
…who would like to hire him if he passes the background check.
And, in keeping with my personality, I burst into tears when he told me.
Happy, sad, scared, worried, delighted…I cant even describe it. If we pass the background check (not a SURE thing, but a reasonably good chance it’s going to happen), we’re moving to Maryland! They wouldnt give him an estimated start date until he passes the check, so we have no idea when. With other gov jobs he’s applied for, the estimated start date has been several months out, so we’re assuming the move would occur late summer/early fall, but are considering that we might need to be ready sooner.
Luckily, we have no lease, as the house we’re renting is currently in forclosure (don’t ask). We’re looking into the financial ramifications of buying right away, vs. renting for the first year. Also the Little Scribbler emotional ramifications of moving twice in one year– the same year she starts school.
Oh yeah, and while we’re on the subject of Little Scribbler, if we leave the state, from what we understand, we have to start from scratch with her special ed services, which will mean the possibility of several months without any services or therapies whatsoever. Grrrrrrrr………….this is extremely infuriating but probably a small price to pay in the long run.
My thoughts are swirling to fast to be transcribed at the moment, lol! We spent the day on the internet, researching the commute, and the housing market, and playing with mortgage calculators, and looking up Catholic schools (which, believe it or not, are a LOT more expensive than the parish school on Long Island…oh well!).
I want to move…we’ve been trying to move FOREVER. And I still kind of don’t want to move!
And I’m driving my husband C-R-A-Z-Y right now :)
