Hey, look, I know things are a mess. I took a hiatus from blogging and decided to switch up my design before returning. Please be patient, because if you can wait out the mess it means REGULAR POSTING WILL RETURN SOON! :D

New Beginnings

Well, things are finally falling into place. Adam got a job today with a construction company in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Because of his experience he's getting $16 and hour starting with time and a half for hours worked over 44 each week. He'll also be getting paid for driving time to get to the construction sites. And there is definite potential to move up and become a team leader (which could net him $24 an hour). And of all the random coincidences...the owner of the business who offered him the job is a member of the Church! Adam will be working long days...but that means he'll be getting 6 or more hours of overtime a week! And if he decides to take and classes to get carpentry certification the company will pay half the cost!

Now we just have to find an apartment. We've made a bunch of inquiries today. The most expensive apartment we've "looked" at is $800 a month (which includes utilities). And even if I can't find a job (highly unlikely by the way) we can actually afford that on Adam's income alone. But I'm hoping the 600-something and 700-something apartments will suit our needs (all of these are two bedrooms). It's a little nerve wracking picking a place we can't look at first but if worse comes to worse we can always move when our lease is up. Medicine Hat seems like a really nice town and I'm looking forward to this move immensely.

Paperwork is going to cost us a fortune ($1040 to get a permanent resident card) but it looks like everything should work out just fine. Apparently I can get Alberta health insurance before I even get a worker's permit or the permanent resident card! Things are looking quite nice right now. God's really taking care of us lately.
