Yep! We are!
This has been going on for the past several weeks, but I didn't want to say anything as not to jinx it! But, Philip interviewed with Ciba Specialty Chemicals a month or so ago, and at the beginning of the month, they offered him the job. He mailed his acceptance for the job today! So, we are moving even further south to Mobile, AL. We should be there for 3 or 4 years and then we would live overseas for a few years as well.
Despite the hurricane weather down there, I am so excited to be able to still be able to live in the south. We won't be too far from our families, and we still will be able to come up for Auburn football games for the next few years. But, I am really going to miss living in the area though.
We went down at the beginning of last week to look at houses and to check out the area. We have decided to buy a house, so that is going to be a challenge to find these next few months. We definately felt like grownups! The good news is that there is a pretty good yarn store down there (www.yarnhaus.com) that I am excited about. They seem to have good classes. I of course went to check it out, and got the Socks, Socks, Socks book from Knitting Universe. It looks pretty darn good with some great patterns.
Needless to say, it is going to be a busy few months with finishing my thesis, finding a job and moving!
As for knitting news, I'm plugging away at the sleeves to the Lucky Clover and I am going to start the arm decreases tonight! So, I am on my way!
Have a great night everyone and I'll have some pics of houses next post!
Oh yeah, and our AC finally got fixed as well! Thank goodness!
