Displaced Yankee Chick in Texas

This blog chronicles my life as a displaced Yankee chick in Texas. I'm from the NY/NJ/PA area and quit my job 1.5 years ago to move to TX with DH and become a SAHM to our 3 kids (2 DDs and 1 DS). **Please note that names have been changed to protect the innocent.**

Reasons to be happy

I'm so happy I could burst! These are some of the reasons I'm so happy:

We're going on a family vacation in a few months and it should be wonderful.
It looks like I'm going to be hired full time at my job.
We didn't owe money after our recent escrow analysis -- a first!
A good friend of mine has a wonderful secret.
We'll be attending a family reunion in a few weeks.
DH may finally get to take the Guy's Weekend Trip he's talked about for years.
It looks like we'll be doing a bit of traveling this summer -- to celebrate our anniversary and to celebrate DH's cousin's wedding and to meet a new member of the family.
Two babies were born into our family late last year; both girls are healthy.

And, as usual, something always seeems to temper the good. My dad is apparently being forced to retire earlier than he had planned. I'm sure everything will work out fine, but he only found out about it earlier today and is understandably angry.

sounds like things are going well!

I hate the early retirement. Will he look for something else to do? My MIL said my FIL will be a door greeter at Wal-mart after he retires so she won't kill him. LOL.
