Life changes...major ones?!

How do YOU deal with life changes? What about the major ones?

There are some major changes happening in my life right now. I'm not surprised as it was in the plan, however, it was expected for it all to happen in June....NOT in April. So, I'm a bit anxious about it all.

Back in Oct. 2011 we took a family trip to Boise, ID to visit some family of mine. No special occasion, just something to do to get out of town.

While we were there, a little bug was planted. It came about for us to move there. We had discussed ways for us to become more financially stable, something to help us be able to do more and provide more for our children and ourselves.

I've always wanted to do nails, since I can remember in high school it was something I wanted to do. I wasn't able to right after high school because of financial reasons. So I didn't do it. I never went to school for anything and never really had an "important" job. I just did customer service positions because they were what I had experience with.

Well, an opportunity we couldn't pass up came along. It was decided I would go to school to become an Esthetician at first and then go to become a nail technician. With the support from my aunt Gwen we decided August was when we would be moving. Then while looking at Oliver Finley's site and their schedule, it was switched to June. 

We started getting things in place to make it a smooth transition as possible. I mean you have to remember we have two small children... 2 years and 4 years old. So starting early is definitely better than not and having a plan of attack is even better! haha

Everything seemed to be falling into place nicely since January. Getting our house on the market was a smooth transition really thank you to our Realtor Neil. I definitely recommend him, no doubt about it. If you're in Oregon, look him up! He's on top of everything and keeps you up to date!

With the house falling into place, we were just waiting for June for me to go to Boise with the kids for a couple weeks before school to get them used to the changes. We were also waiting to see what was going to be happening with my husband's job as he had looked into a different position with the company he's with.

Seemed as though all was going and it would all fall into place for June and then BAM!!! We learned today that the call center he is at is CLOSING! Yes, the entire center is closing as of June 22nd. We were totally caught off guard.

We talked about it. I talked with my aunt as she's the one the kids and I are staying with and the one watching the kids and of course she has her own life and business to take care of as well. It was decided that while it may be stressful and a bit to get done in a short 3 week period it is best to start school sooner than later.

I know that some of you reading this are thinking (IF you're still reading, haha), "You have this weekend and next week, plus 2 weeks in April.". NOT REALLY! I'm leaving to John Day for the night and then I'm off to Boise Saturday until Wednesday. At which point when I return I'm off to a Vault Denim party. Thursday I'm doing another Vault Denim party. Friday for the most part is a day of "rest" however, I have a doctor's appoint. Saturday is filled with an event for Vault Denim.

After that then my schedule is less busy, but at the same time it isn't now because I'm having to get our house in order and ready to be all packed up and ready for the date we need to move everything out of the house. If you have children, especially younger ones, you know how difficult things are with them around as they're always wanting to know what you're doing.

So really I have 2 weeks to get it all together and make sure it is at a place that I can trust my husband to get it completed. He does NOT pack like I do at all. Its scary! haha

If you have read to this point, THANK YOU! If you have tips/tricks/advice on how to keep things as organized as possible and as stress free as it can be with the given situation, PLEASE do share! I'd love to hear it!
