How much more can one girl take?

So, about the only thing left on those top five stressors lists that hasn't happened to me is divorce/separation. And the separation part will happen, just not the way that implies.

Remember back in the wintertime when the hub had an offer from Atlanta that got really, really messy? We thought we were moving, and then suddenly, not?

All of the ugly knots have been untied, and they want him to start on Sept. 1. He wants to accept.

This is flocked because it mentions work, of course.

*holds you*

So, would this mean living apart for a bit? Would you eventually join him there?

Good news is good! You deserve it. I'm just sorry that it's coming with a sidecar of stress.

Nods. I won't get out of here any sooner than Oct. 1, I imagine. If he takes the boys and gets them settled in school, then I'll be able to close down things here...I think.

It *is* good, just dealing with it will be HARD.

Yikes! That's wonderful news for him, but still SO stressful for your family. :(

Will you be moving down here eventually? And if he needs any Atlanta info, definitely feel free to ask.

Nods -- all of us, eventually. We're going to rent somewhere in maybe lower Roswell, Marietta, etc. Up there somewhat N of 285 and a little west of 400.

I'm sure we'll need your expertise, no doubt about it. At the very least, you can fill us in on the school districts!

It will be nice to be in a city again.

You're right -- bad to get to the good. Much appreciation for the support.

This is apparently what they mean when they say good news can be just as stressful as bad news. I hope this works out for you! Remember to breathe. ::hug::

In other circumstances, I think I'd have us halfway packed and a list of things to do by now, but my brain isn't functioning properly right now, it really isn't.

Breathing. Yes, that's important, isn't it. How is it that we forget something so simple??

It is good news, the coping will come, but yep, that's some serious freak out level stress. ((hugs))

So...I'll see you in December, then, since we'll be driving through Atlanta on the way to Murfreesboro. :)

I know how stressful moving can be, but if he wants to accept, it must be a promotion. And, it's Atlanta. Lots to do in the Atlanta metro area :-)

It's an extremely good opportunity for him, and overall, it will be very good for our family. The timing, however... wow. It could be better.

::hugs:: don't hyperventilate, Chris. It's all going to be okay. Remember to breathe.

It *will* be okay. You're right.

Is hypoventilate just another way of saying suffocate? I find myself doing this non-breathe thing more than fast-fast...

I know you will be fine, but it can get to be a bit too much at first.

Hugs, deep breath and it's going to work out brilliantly.

He did?

NEAT.

It will, I know you're right. It's just hard to see right now.

Yes. You're right, it is.

Thank you, dear.

This is a good thing -- and you know we're here for support.

Oh, I am sooo going to have to go to the Moonlight and Magnolias conference in Atlanta so I can get together with my LJ friends from the area.

I'm so grateful for you guys it's almost scary. The nuclear family is all under seige right now, and so the RL support network is scarily shaky right now. I know I've got friends out here, too, and that does make a difference.

And I hadn't thought of Atlanta being big enough to draw folks from other places, but you're right! Another reason it's a Good Thing.

Sometimes life just seems to want to test us, eh?

Yes, a test. Or a few. Thank you for reminding me, too. That's a perspective on it that could be very useful in the next few weeks...
