Rumor is that we are moving. Well, its true! So its not really a rumor now is it? After a lot of job searching, researching, and soul searching here in our area with no luck, we changed our location and started looking for jobs back in Nebraska.

Adam was offered a lovely job at a place he used to work for about 6 years ago. He is going to work as a Software Engineer for Kenexa (check it out) This time he is a little higher up compared to what he did before.

Adam's start date is April 7th. Not much time! We have to finish up some projects on our house and get it on the market. The horrible, no good, very bad, awful housing market. I am a little scared and stressed about this. I want it to sell, and I don't want to make a sale out of desperation. So if you could throw a few "sell that house" vibes our way, we will love you forever.

Now the big question is, do we all move together the first week in April, or do the kids and I stay here in Texas until school gets out and the house sells while Adam goes on to Nebraska without us? What would you do?

We are leaving our 4 bedroom 3 bathroom home to live in a cute 960 sq ft 2 bedroom 1 bathroom bungalow. It is a wonderful opportunity though, since its going to save us a bundle. We will be able to save up quite a bit to build a new home in Nebraska over by my mom and one of my sisters. Isn't that exciting?

Preston and Maija are over the moon excited about all of this. We finally told them tonight. Preston wants to be near cousins and snow again. Maija just wants to be in Nebraska. Maren, of course, has no idea whats going on! She is just happy to be around Daddy, Preston and Maija.

We are sad to be leaving our beautiful Texas weather. Sad to leave our first home. Sad to leave Adam's family, our friends and our neighborhood but we will have all that again in Nebraska. The snow I could do without though. Bring along the Texas weather and it would be perfect.

We have 4 weeks to get everything ready. Think we can do it? I do! Oh, and anyone know a good realtor to use? :)

Go to Nebraska, it could take forever to sell, not worth waiting.

Well, hello Ahnah Bench!!! Remember me? Probably not, we were in the same ward for like a minute. Anyway, I found you blog surfing. That's pretty exciting that you are moving back to Nebraska. I tried to get Ryan to go back and do an internship out there but that's not going to happen. Anyway, I wanted to say hi and your kids are so cute!!!!
