Rumpke Still Stinks, but we're movin' on!

A lot has happened since the last posting about my husbands job. He has severed all ties with that company. HIP HIP HOORAY! I have never felt so sure about any decision in my life. They were treating him so terrible and he did not feel right about a lot of the things they were doing. It is funny, he loved his job at one point and he was aways very good at it, although good luck finding anyone with authority to back that up at Rumpke. Even though Chris's back will never be good again, he had to leave. Hopefully he will figure out what NOT to do to keep his health in check. With four small children he does not want to take any unnecessary chances. Life is too short to waste any of it!

Now that our Rumpke nightmare is over, we are moving on. Chris had a 3rd interview on Monday and he will find out tomorrow if he got the job. So, please send up a little prayer for us! We are so excited and we feel that God is leading us to greater things.

Oh, by the way did I mention the job is in Foley, Alabama? YUP, that's right. In case you don't know that is approximately 15 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores. Sometimes life leads you were you never dreamed. Who would have thought we'd be getting ready to move 1 house, 2 parents, 3 dogs, and 4 toddlers 700 miles away. NOT ME! Besides the fact that we are leaving our families behind we are sooooo ready for this move!!!


  1. Very exciting! How cool to live so close to the beach! Hope it works out!
