It feels like virtually overnight I’m going from a grad student with a baby girl, to a working mom of a toddler. Yup – you read that right. I accepted a job offer with a start date in October.

With this one change will come a host of others.

We’re Moving! To where I’m not exactly sure yet. The commute to my job is a problem so we’re going to try to find something more in the middle. There’s multiple factors to consider, cost of housing (we’d like to buy again if possible), school systems, etc.

We’re Selling our House! Gulp. We’re in a rowhouse and two other units have just sold or have a sale pending so I’ve been zillow-stalking them to see what the going rate is.

Pooky is going to Day Care! Okay, she already goes to day care, but she will be going full time. I am really apprehensive about this, but she seems to be doing well at her current daycare, so I’m trying not to dwell too much.

The goal is to be situation into our new lives by the start of 2014. Wish us luck!
