After MUCH prayer and debate, we have decided to move. Doc has been overwhelmed with work for about 2 years and our family time has been suffering. He has been going into work by 6:30 am and gets home at 6:30 or 7 pm. He grabs a bite to eat, helps me tuck in the kids and then from about 9 to 11 he does his dictations. On top of that he has call twice a month and weekend calls every 7th weekend (or so) and rounds every Saturday for 3 or 4 hours, on average. We have been feeling pressure from all sides for a long time. There just aren't enough hours in the day to get it all done...and especially not all done WELL. His kids are very important to him (as am I) and he has just decided enough is enough.
We are moving closer to family and he is trading in his 60 - 70 hour weeks for an 8 to 5 job with NO WEEKENDS! Yay!!!! The kids and I aren't going to know what to do with him around so much! It will definitely feel like a much needed respite for both of us.
With all that change, comes one big one...we are selling our house. It is official. There are signs in the yard and the local realtors came to an open house yesterday!
The saddest part about selling our house is leaving our wonderful neighborhood! We have made dear friends here and I'm just trying not to think about leaving them...I'm trying to focus on the good!!!
Please check out the blog that I made for the house and pass on the link to anyone who may be interested in seeing it! Click on the image below or on the side bar of our house to go take a tour!
