Some of y’all may have guessed that our rapid trip to Chattanooga on Monday was for a job interview for Mr. V. While I was having a fantastic omelet and great coffee at Aretha Frankenstein’s with Robin from Pensieve, Mr. V was undergoing a whole day of interviews at a local high school. We are VERY happy to announce that he did get the job and we’re going to be Chattanoogans! (Chattanoogites?)
The last few months–since November, really, when his application process began–have been such a downer for us, and we are so relieved to know where we’ll be. At the same time, it’s incredibly bittersweet. We still won’t be near any family; we will miss our life and friends here in Nashville so much; and honestly, I’m not sure how I’ll function as a stay-at-home mom, even though that is what I have dreamed and desired to be! I love my job and I will be sad to leave when the time comes. Also we will have to undergo the stress of trying to sell our house in a less than desirable market.
I’ve decided I won’t share where Mr. V will be teaching since I just don’t think that’s necessary information and don’t want a bunch of high-schoolers finding my blog. 🙂 I also don’t think I’ll be the changing the name of it–we’ll always be proud of our Vanderbilt connection, and I don’t want to undergo the hassle.
Thank you for your prayers during this time.
Will you please also lift up a prayer this morning for my friend Monica? This dear, sweet woman just lost her little son—she was 6 months pregnant. I am so grieving for her this morning and I know she covets prayers.
