It all started when we met. 2 weeks after our first date, we began planning a wedding. Since there's clearly no need for a long engagement, we were married 6 months after we got engaged. 6 months later, we found out I was pregnant. Towards the end of my pregnancy, we decided Jason should go back to school (immediately, of course), which meant moving when Micah was only 5 weeks old. When we moved to our current house in 2003, it was b/c Jason was called to a church in July of that year and we had to move fairly quickly. Jason actually signed a contract on our home before I ever had a chance to see it.
Fast forward 5 years and here we are on the brink of another move, Jason going back to school (for his Masters this time), finding new jobs, selling a house, finding a house, and all the other stuff that happens when you relocate. But the kicker is that this is not something we've been planning for the last 6 months or so. That is SO not how we roll. Oh no- this brilliant idea started all of 3 weeks ago. That's right, my friends. 3 weeks ago, Jason had a conversation with a friend that set this whole plan in motion. In 3 weeks' time (one of which we were out of town) Jason applied to seminary, I applied for jobs in the area, Jason got accepted to seminary, I set up an interview for a job, and Jason has some job leads of his own. All of this so we can bust-a-move in time for school to start in the fall. Not fall 2009, which would be what a normal person might be considering. Fall 2008. As in, a few short weeks from now. WEEKS!!!! And with 3 children. We must be out of our ever-lovin' minds.
