I changed the theme of the blog, and will be tinkering with it a bit over the next few months. Though seriously, who looks at the actual blog and doesn’t use a reader? But, just in case you do read directly on the blog, it’s probably on your cell phone, and the new theme is supposed to be good for mobile screens.
I thought it was time for a change because a big change is coming! (No, there’s not a second bébé on the way, much to the chagrin of the grandparents.)
We are moving to the states! So the blog will go from accounts of my normal life in France to tales of readjusting to life in the states. I’ll be sure to do a few posts on the whole administrative side of the move, as well as a few about all the feels I’m having/will have about the move.
In order to prepare this big move, I’ll be cutting down my work hours in October. So my no spend September is a way to test the waters and see if I can spend much less, since I’ll be bringing in much less. Though since part of moving will involve selling almost all of our belongings, I might end up brining in just as much, if not more.
But I want what I do bring in to fund the move, since for the moment, we don’t have jobs lined up. It’s still a little too soon to send out tons of resumes, so it’s hard to know what kind of response we’ll get. I tend to be optimistic, and hope that at the very least, we’ll have a few interviews lined up once we arrive. We’ll be staying with my parents at first, and my optimism tells me it’ll only be for a few weeks.
For the moment, everything is still in the planning stage, so I might not post a lot about it yet, since nothing is really happening. In about another month or so, things will start to really get going.
I hope you all like the new theme, both visually and content-wise!
