About two months ago my husbands job informed his entire office that they will be closing the office here in our city and moving it to Ohio to combine with another region. For those of you who don't know we live in Illinois. At first we did not even know if my husband would have a job. He had to travel to Ohio and interview for a job which he did receive an offer for. A couple of weeks ago he accepted the offer so it looks like eventually we maybe moving to Ohio. My husband is a railroader and has only 9 more years until he can retire from the railroad. There is some small possibility he would switch fields entirely but I am not sure that will actually happen. As of right now he does not know when he needs to be in Ohio to start work there. We do know that we have one year to utilize relocation services provided by his company from the time he needs to report to work in Ohio. Right now our plan is for him to go there without me and Kid #5 until after the 2016-2017 school year. Kid # 5 has requested to finish middle school here and be a new student at a new school going into high school. This will allow us time to get our house ready to sell also.
So there ya go. This has been our summer so far. To say I am really bummed about this turn of events is an understatement :( However I am blessed that my husband does still have a job!
