This is home for now

Well, as it turns out, this suite will be our home for as long as we are here. I'll have to tske some picks to show you our luxurious home. (haha) As I was trying to fall asleep last night I thought of a really neat way to photograph our room to give you the Full Monty. I think I might try it today, to see if it works out.

It also seems that this is going to be a bit longer than expected and I'm at a loss for what to do. Vinnie came home yesterday and tells me that this job (that was supposed to be 6 to 8 weeks) might be 10 weeks. Okay, if it is 8 weeks then he was going to get a two week break and we were going to go on vacation with the kids. (like we're not already!) We would go home and he would come back for another 85 days. Then...whatever, on to the next job, blah, blah, blah...

Well, it seems that my sweetheart has done such a jam up job here, and impressed just the right people, that they love him. He came here to be an operator. Sit in the crane and move things. Now he's a foreman that escorts cranes around the plant, does lift plans and tells them how to set up. They want him to stay at least through the shutdowns they have planned through next spring. Uh, okay. This means if this job takes 10 weeks (like it looks), then no break. He will go straight to the next job here in the same plant and then the next one after that...that's supposed to be until next Springish. What do I do?

I've considered us staying here and letting the girls spend a year in California. I know Madi would love that...Little Miss "I don't want to move" says she would jump at the chance to stay here. I have no idea how custody would work though.

So we shall see. I have to go for now. I have a dog howling to go to the dog park!!
