- Wedding: May 2013
Oh boy how did we get HERE? This is confusing, so read it carefully.
Well, We’re moving to another state. My son’s father and I came to an agreement involving custody. He’ll get him durring 1/2 of summer and winter break, and we share other holidays (every year we rotate). Ex is happy about having him for longer periods of time and happy that I will be in a place to spend more quality time with him. Moving for us means that I only need to work part time, and I can work in a position I’ve always wanted to, but never had the time to finish my schooling for.
I’m going to be a sub. teacher. The state I’m moving to has lower standards for teachers and sub teachers, so I can apply right away! The people I’ve talked to say good things and it looks promising. They like me and my resume and told me to apply as soon as I’m in the state! Yay!
Well, his sister, her fiance and baby, and FI’s mother are all moving to the same state too. They offered to have us stay with them in a family condo owned by a family friend. The rent spilt would be $225. We’d get one room and a connecting bathroom. We could stay as long as we wanted. We lived in a studio before when we were apartment hunting, so we know how to deal with tight spaces.
We were so excited!! This saves us TONS! The condo is parially furnished, so we don’t need furnature right away. No 1st and last and deposot, and with all the money we save we can pay off that credit card. WOO HOO! Even better, they’re looking to buy a house, so when they find one they said we can stay as long as we need. AHH!!!
It was almost too good to be true. I should have known something was going to happen.
Well, Fiance just needs a transfer. So we were waiting. FI’s sister & gang needed some help with a sitter for their baby. I offered to move up early and help, as Fiance had a really good interview and it looked like he got his transfer. I know how hard childcare is to find and they were only going to have 2 weeks to find someone relaiable.
I asked Fiance if he got his job. He told me yes. He said he’s most likely be there by the 2nd week of June. He was sure, so I put my two weeks right before the wedding and left my job. I started packing and I’m going to the new state on memorial day. It’s too late for me to work summer school, but the hiring process takes a few months so it would work out nicely.
Fiance just found out that he DIDN’T get it. We’re set to be out of the apartment at the end of the month. Stuff is packed. My son is leaving to his dad’s and I’m going to the new state.
Instead of find another apartment, my parents said he could stay with them. We were all happy it worked out, until yesterday it hit both of us that tha first months of our marriage we would be spending with each other’s families.
I’m so terrified. I’ve never been apart from my son for more then a week, and I have to be gone from him all summer long. Fiance has no idea how long it will take now. We’re talking months. It could be up to 6,worst case. I just don’t know what to do. This is all happening so fast.
it’s going to be OK, right?
