We made it!

Well, we made it! After a long six months of watching Tulip grow from a mound of dirt, we finally have our house. My parents came up on Saturday and took this picture for us. I have a ton more but my camera battery is dead and the charger is in a box somewhere. I am going to have to get creative with how to get the pictures off my card. I sense a trip to Walgreens coming soon!

We have a really great park right near our neighborhood - mom and I took a walk after lunch while the guys waited at home for the mattress to be delivered. There are lots of things to do there, tennis, trails, boat ramps, canoes for rent, big grassy areas for picnics, a playground...
Virginia already feels like home and for that, I am thankful! It was a long week of painting but I think it all came together nicely. We had no internet, which was incredibly painful for both of us (we are so spoiled!), but because of that soooo much got done.
I had three interviews while I was there. One would have been a really great job but there was a LOT of travel involved (cross country air travel, ack) and it was very clinical, moreso than what I am comfortable with considering I am not a RN. The second interview went really well too and I really, really want the job. It's an office with four other women and I get the impression that it will be a somewhat emotional decision based on which candidate fits the best with them. I think I had a strong interview and I'm really, really hopeful that I'll get a positive response. I would love your prayers that this is where I'm supposed to be and if it's not that I would have patience and wisdom to find my place in VA.
More pictures hopefully soon! :)
