Maybe the Tides Have Turned??

I had two whole long miserable years of nothing but bad news. One thing after the next- it was all bad news all the time.

And since the beginning of the summer, we've been riding the wave of constant good news. I almost don't want to talk about it because I've spent a lot of time waiting for the other shoe to drop. I don't have this much good news. It's like a totally foreign concept.

My list of goodness
1. J got a new job- and we got amazing IF coverage. Total game changer.
2. We really liked the new RE and decided to move forward with Natural Cycle IVF.
3. I was formally cleared by the Endocrinologist and was told there is absolutely no recurrence of my thyroid cancer.

And now #4- #4 is a good one. I got a new job! FINALLY! After seven full months of working in a call center- I got a new job. Oddly enough- I'm going back to work with the client that I worked with for 5 years before I was married. The contract is with a different company, but same idea and lots of the same people that I'll be working with. I got a raise, half the commute that I'm doing now, and a waaaay better work schedule. Amazing. It will change my life for the better in so many ways. Right now I get home around 7:15pm. J has to cook dinner every night or we would eat too late. And I have no time to do anything at night. And all that will vanish with this new job! It's very close to J's work (like 2 miles) so we can even carpool to work some days. I can go in early at like 6:30-7:00 and be home early too. AH-MAZ-ING. I don't have a start date quite yet- I'm just waiting for my security clearance to cross over and then I'll give my notice. I'm mentally preparing for that. Quitting when you work for a small company is not fun. They get super pissed off. But whatevs.

5. There are two houses in our neighborhood that are selling for what we would need to sell our house for to break even. That means we should be able to sell this house in the spring and peace outta here! We have only a very general idea of where we want to live so right now- the plan is to move in with my Mom (eeep!) for as long as we can tolerate- hopefully about a year- to save money and figure out where we really want to live. That could be a verrrrrrrrrry long year.

Do you believe in trends? Could this possibly continue? If it does- I really just need one more good thing. That's all I need. Please?


  1. I'm so glad things are looking up for you! It seems like bad news comes in drove, but then when the tides turn, the good news does, too!! I hope it keeps on coming!

  2. Kathy, this all makes me so very happy to read! Congrats on both new jobs and all the other good news. I hope the biggest "happy news" is close! <3

  3. Ha, holy crap, you're moving in with your MOM??? That will be interesting but I'm so happy to hear that you can possibly sell your house soon!

  4. Sounds like that hope and a future God promised are starting to come to fruition! At least if you move in with your mom we can see each other too! Keep the good news coming!

  5. YAYAYAYAY! If anyone deserves lots of good news, it's you. And I'm positive there is more on the way!

    Uh yeah, keep me informed on the whole moving deal. We've been talking about it more and more lately. Mattress testers 4 lyfe.

  6. I'd say the tides have definitely turned!

  7. Yay!!! Congratulations on the new job and all the good things going on! Let the good news keep coming!!! <3

  8. You deserve this! I am very happy things are moving in the right direction.

  9. Wow girl, looks like fate finally woke up and realized what a crappy hand you'd been dealt the last two years. So happy for all the great news!!
