WE GOT A JOB!!! HAPPY DANCE!!!

Hubs and I BOTH got a job today!!

We will be working in Nenana, AK at a school as dorm parents.
Basically kids from all over Alaska apply to come to Nenana to live at this school.
They are taught study and life skills and the school helps them get to college!
It's a great place for kids who don't have alot of options in life.
It's only a 50 cents less pay than I make now... but there is an apartment included for
FREE. All Paid. Food is included. FREE. ANNNNNNND Awesome benefits which I don't have
now.
PLUS.
Hubs and I get to work together and live at our jobs, so no commute.
We will live very close to Denali National Park.. in a close community that reminds me alot of
home.
YAYAYAYAYY!!
Thank you everyone for your support, prayers and positive vibes... it's really helped!!
Heres a picture of our new home!

  37. Wow -- what could be better than a job with benefits, a free place to live, the opportunity to work with your other half, and to do it all in an absolutely gorgeous place? Sign me up!

  38. WOW - this is great news! We have made a big move (San Diego to NZ) so I know exactly what you are going through right now. Can't wait to read more about your Alaska adventures, I am now subscribed so I won't miss any of them!

  39. You got a skillion comments because everyone's been cheering for you during your job search.
    Gimme an R... Gimme an O...
    Woo HOO!

    In another post you mention thinking that your move to AK is "right."
    Honey, this JOB seems similarly RIGHT for you.
    Every time I read about the "ghetto" I know you're patient and kind, with enough smarts and humor to be okay in just about any environment.
    When I think about your job as dispatcher it's the same thing; you've GOT to be quick thinking and cool-headed, (and patient. I think you must be a patient person Rocksee.)
    You'll be perfect for the school.

    I hope it's awesome.

    I LOVE following your dream with you.
    Blog ON girl.
