Aaron got a new job!

With the threat if impending layoffs in the air, he just happened to fall into an opportunity that we think is perfect for him! He has been working as an engineer for about five and a half years and he was doing an hour and a half (each way) commute two to three times a week. The prospects for advancement were also looking bleak so he had actually started looking for job opportunities outside of his company. We were both praying frequently about what he should do, where we should live, etc. Because of our situation with Tyler, I could never get comfortable with moving out of the area, but the chances of something turning up locally seemed to be slim to none.

Then out of the blue, his manager mentioned a new program they are implementing that he thought Aaron would be a good candidate for. It was a technical sales support position that included a work from home arrangement. In a whirlwind 3 days or so, Aaron applied, interviewed, was offered the position and accepted. We are excited about the potential!

Now we have quickly realized that with all of our bedrooms full, no extra "living" rooms, both of us working from home, and a new baby on the way, we are officially out of space. So the preparations have begun to put our house on the market. We got lots of "fixer ups" to do, so we're hoping to leisurely take care of those and put it on the market in early 2007. Let the fun begin!
