In just three weeks Mr. & Mrs. Smith will pack up and begin the journey to our new home, Tempe, Arizona. A moving company from Georgia will come early Friday morning and load up everything. All we have to do is make sure it's packed! I've been collecting many boxes from work and our second bedroom is filling up...needless to say, I haven't done any packing yet. Jordan's parents will come down with Josiah in his truck on moving day. Josiah and Annie are buying our washer and dryer from us, so he will take that back with him and Curt and Karen will help us drive our cars to Arizona. Google maps says it's 1377 miles, 21 hours and 34 minutes. I just hope we get there by Sunday!
My last day of work at Truman is June 12th...nine more days and counting! Jordan is busy studying away almost every hour of every day, preparing for his board exams. They are both in Des Moines, June 13th and 18th. We have a hotel room for both nights before the test. They start at 8am and Jordan said they will last almost until 4pm. I plan to visit my friends Jenalee and Tracy (and maybe even hit up the TJ Maxx). Jordan's rotations begin July 1st and his first one will be in family medicine at a clinic in Mesa. I know he is anxious to do well on the boards and begin his rotations-no more studying!
I do not have a job lined up in Arizona yet. I have applied to seven different jobs and have heard nothing, other than automatic e-mails stating the position is filled. Looking back on the different ways the Lord has provided for me in my life and the journey following Jordan with his medical career, I just know he will continue to deliver the things we need in while moving to Arizona.
Last but not least, I cannot wait to live near my sister Kelsi and her husband Nick. They live in Gilbert, which is only 25 miles away from our place in Tempe! They are expecting their first baby in October, and I am so looking forward to being an aunt, as well as planning a cute shower in August or September for her.
