The Wind is Changing



Well, I have not blogged anything for a very long time!!  It has been three months now since Adam returned, and I can hardly believe it.  It seems like yesterday.  Well, today I wanted to write about some recent changes in our lives.  ( I will try to do a few catch up blogs in the coming days.)  Several months ago, Adam and I became aware that we were going to be transfered, most likely, this summer.  We put in our preferences, the first three of which were not available.  At that point it started to look like we were heading to Augusta, Georgia.  I have to say, we both felt very peaceful about the move, even though we knew it would take us far away from many things and people that we love.  Through communication with the man who would be placing Adam in a hospital, it became more and more certain that Georgia it would be.  There was one more hiccup in the plan of where we would end up, but finally, the day Adam arrived back in the states we were told it was certain we would be moving to Augusta.  Well, we started to do our homework, we looked into school districts and neighborhoods, and finally, we booked a trip to go house hunting this coming April.  Well, as they say, the only thing constant is change, and the very next day, after we booked our flights, we received a phone call telling Adam that we were NOT going to Georgia, but back to Washington state.  This came as quite a shock, but it is a great opportunity for Adam, as he will be working in a training hospital, where he will supervise and teach residents full time.  So now, we find ourselves returning somewhere we never thought we would be.  We will be leaving for the Great Northwest in early June.  It is still a little shocking to me, but Adam and I both feel really good about it, and we feel as though the Lord is guiding our paths.  

Our house has been on the market now for nearly two weeks.  It is, perhaps, not the best time to sell, but we are moving forward anyway.  We hope someone will like our home and want to make it theirs.  I don't know if anyone will be interested in seeing our listing, but here it is.  Let me know what you think.  http://listingsmagic.com/flash/tour.php?property_ID=10118

It really hit me the other day that we are moving, and soon.  It definitely kind of stinks, to be leaving so many wonderful friends, but I don't want to think of that just yet.  We have a few more months of good times together!  

Well, I will sign off for now, but I will try to fill everyone in on all the things that have been happening in the past three months soon!

Liz, glad you are back, I have missed the updates. We missed being with you last week, hope all went well for Jens. We didn't realize you'll be leaving us so soon, hopefully, your braces will be OFF before heading back to Washington. The house looks beautifu, heck, I would buy it just for the beautiful daisey's out front. Let us know how things go, hope things continue to fall into place, these are exciting times for the Nielson family, all our best.

Nice to have you back. I've been a lame blogger myself lately. Something about getting a house ready to show I guess. Your house looks great in your listing. I will be sure to tell anyone I know who I hear is PCSing to CO.

Chase was horrified that you didn't mention the real reason WA is so awesome...Westhoffs. :-)
