I just wanted to let everyone know that as of last night I'm in Indiana and will be here until at least August 26th. I'm here to visit friends and family but I'm also here to work.
I will post an update soon on what is going on with Brad and I.
My husband, Brad, has an interview tomorrow (Friday, May 23rd at 2pm) in Hazard, Kentucky. This is a state job and would get him out of the terrible schedule he keeps with sports. He is very very hopeful. We are driving to Prestonburg, KY late tonight after he gets off work and then driving the rest of the way tomorrow. Then we will have to turn around and he will have to go back into the office Friday evening.
My mother, father, brother and sister-in-law are coming in for the weekend and will be here Friday evening.
Thanks to everyone that has and continues to pray for us.
What hasn’t changed is my husband is still looking for a job elsewhere, he is hoping to hear something in the next couple weeks from a company is Hazard, Kentucky. We are still pretty sure we are going to have to move in the near future to have a better future. We continue to appreciate all the prayers.
My sister-in-laws brother, Joe, has been oversees since March and will have to be there approximately 18 months. She has asked me to ask everyone I know to pray for his safety because he is going in and out of some of the more dangerous areas.
Now for my exciting news, I am now an Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay. The company offers so much freedom and great possibilities not to mention I have used the products for 7 years now and continually love them. So after much prayer, my husband and I decided it was the right thing for me to do. You can check out my website at www.marykay.com/kelleydamron and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I am offering free gifts, free shipping and ways to earn free product. And I would be happy to help anyone who doesn’t have a consultant and is concerned about great skin care or would just love some personalized service.
First I would like to thank everyone for all the prayers and well wishes, they are and have been greatly appreciated. I wanted to post, since so much has changed in my life.
A lot of you know that the move to WV has turned into somewhat of a nightmare, but we are making it through it. For those of you who don't know the company my husband took a job with in August, decided to shut down with no warning on January 2. He started another job Feb. 4 taking a huge pay cut and is miserable for the time being. He is looking daily for any job possibilities in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee. Decent paying Sports Editor position or Sport Information Asst. position are just hard to come by, but that is where his experiences are.
We are trying to stay within a 6 hr. max distance from both of our families, because some day we hope to have children and we want them to know there grandparents and aunt/uncle.
I am still unemployed, since the move, but that may be a blessing in disguise. (But that would take more explanation then I have time tonight to give.) I seem to be way over qualified and have made more money then any jobs available in WV and I have had very few people even call me back for an interview. Our families have been a true blessing for us, as well as my sister-in-laws family in helping us out and I’m so thankful for them.
I feel like all I do is ask for prayers, but I would appreciate them once again. Especially for my husband, Brad, he continues to worry and stress about this and thinks that he has ruined my life with all this. Where I tend to be more easy going, I’ve been able to handle it a little better, but being human I still stress from time to time.
So plans have changed a little once again, but I am very excited the move is so near. I gave my notice at IU Southeast on Tuesday and as much as I've wanted to turn in my notice it was still really hard because I have spent the last 7 years of my life growing up while working there.
My last day will be Wednesday, December 5.
I will finish packing and load the cars on Dec. 6.
On the morning of Dec. 7, my parents are going to follow me with some of my stuff to West Virginia.
I will get there just in time for husband's families Christmas party that Saturday evening, which my parents will go to with us and then they will head back to Indiana on Sunday.
I may not have internet right away when I first get there but we will have it soon thereafter. And the job thing is still uncertain, but we do have a possibility of me working in my husband's office temporarily as a secretary.
Thanks to everyone once again for all the continued prayers, this has all been very stressful and hard on both Brad and I.
