Doodling and Waiting........

Wish i had some news...........I keep reminding myself and hubs that no news is good news.....at least he hasn't been rejected..........he did get turned down for a Washington state job in Seattle. Apparently he was eligible but they had better qualified applicants.........sigh........sure we want the CA job but we've also applied to others in Washington and Oregon.....We have to be out of our house by the end of the month and believe me at Sept 16 we are beginning to feel the time crunch.
Thing is the VA and government fiscal years start over on October 1st........could be they are waiting until then to hire on more people, that could be holding up the process . So we have to be out of our house by Oct1 but we may not hear anything until Oct1 . Just bad timing all the way around. We've seriously started looking for an apartment. We are trying to find one just on a month to month basis........apparently my town doesn't do that??? Then we need a storage facility for all our stuff...........all this just an expense we didn't want to have to put out. But the new owners already have someone lined up to move in here so we gotta go.
To be honest i'm ready to get out of here..........ever so slightly sad........stood out on my porch yesterday and watched the full moon play tag with the clouds and thought about all the times spent in the house........but so ready to move on.......The new owners will be coming in this weekend and next weekend to work on the inside of the house.......new bathroom floor and kitchen floor........you know how grumpy i'm gonna be about that.......but i will put on my brave face.......maybe i'll go grocery shopping and let hubby handle it.......
I hope you like how the butterfly is progressing.......As you can tell i finally decided on blues. I think i will use alot of orange in the flowers. Think good thoughts today. Friday always feels like a good day for us to hear something about the job. The end of the week is a good day to change someones life........hello VA are you listening?..........call me! Hugs ! deb
Just received word that hubby was NOT selected for the job in CA.........sigh.........still a few other jobs in the works but either way we have sold our home. At least now we know we WILL need an apartment and storage space come the end of the month and things are not so up in the air. Ofcourse there is still the chance that the person they offerred it to will turn it down and give hubs a second chance. Thank you for all your well wishes and thoughts. I'll let you know whats up with us on the job front. Ofcourse hubs still has his current government job so all is good there. Just looking for change.........

Hope all goes well for you. We sold our house in IL before the closing on the one in NY. We had to live in temporary housing (read long-stay motel) for a month. It was fun. NOt!

I love your artwork, and the butterfly is beautiful.

Sorry about the job situation for your husband. I know it's tough times right now, but sounds like at least he's getting interviews and call backs. That's more than what some folks out there are getting. I realize that doesn't really help, but it is something.

Hopefully, something will come up for him soon. Oh, and don't feel too bad about not getting to move to WA. It rains here for ten months a year...seriously. I think you dodged a bullet on that one! :)

Tough transition time, Deb. Boy, can I empathize - been there, done that.

And yet, you're creating your most beautiful image yet! Please let me know when the butterfly is available for sale ;-)
