Bring on the Alarm Clock!

Say hello to the Hamilton alarm clock. I have had it pretty much as long as I can remember - clear back into pre-teen days when I shared a room with my sister. It's a great alarm clock - sturdy, reliable, dependable.
The thing is... it hasn't gotten much use for the past 4 years. When Jason left Goldman Sachs and went to work for himself, he could just get up when he wanted & get to work. Then, for the past year with Jason being out of work, we obviously haven't had much use for it. Truth is, it's been a great 4-year run of no annoying beeps or music to wake us up. We've woken up to light streaming through our blinds or the birds chirping sweetly outside our window. (OK - who am I kidding? We actually have 3 alarm clocks & their names are McKinley, Ireland & Kezia).
So what's my point?
BRING ON THE ALARM CLOCK! JASON GOT A JOB!
With who? Wells Fargo.
Where? Park City
When? He starts his training on April 5th, which will last 6-8 weeks

So... we have basically gone from zero to whiplash at our household! We are currently working to get our home in shape to put on the market. Who knows how long it will take to sell. We plan to give it a few months & then look for renters.

We feel very blessed & humbled by this opportunity. The way it came about, the interview, everything was truly not a coincidence. We feel He has guided our way. Thank you to EVERYone who has offered prayers on our behalf.
We are eagerly looking forward to this new adventure!

That is good news!!!! All except the alarm clock! and the thought of you guys moving. Are you sure you aren't just trying to get out of your calling? I did that once.

I'm excited for you and your family. I hope all the transitions go smoothly.

That is so awesome! YAY! I bet you feel so grateful. Although the alarm is so not fun. Chad's goes off every morning at 4:45 AM. Yikes. At this point I don't even hear it. I am so happy for your cute family but sad that you will be leaving us!

We never became super close, but I love the spirit you and jason bring to this ward. Truly. I was so excited to have u lead lincoln and all the kids. I appreciate your example. At least we have a few months of you!

Gardners Glad Tidings said...

I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU!! (and yes, I just did a dance as I said that!) That trial, of joblessness if all-encompassing, and humbling (We just went through it.) And I so grateful that you got your miracle, there is no one more deserving then you guys.

Does this mean you will be moving back to the PC hood? How jealous am I?

The alarm clock so had it coming!

Love you guys!
