Here is an update as we approach the wedding. We are now 10 days out from the wedding and Eric is moving up here on Saturday.
Eric flew up here on Friday to go job hunting Mon-Wed. He had one interview set up for a sign company down south on the Kansas side Monday morning. This is someone that he just found the company online and the owner of the company he is at now had emailed them about Eric. They didn't have an opening or anything that we knew of. Well last Monday the guy called Eric at work and was asking for some information about signs, pretending to be a customer. Then at the end of the conversation the guy said well actually I own a sign company in Kansas, and I was just wanting to see how your customer service was.
Eric met with the owner and his wife Monday morning. The appointment went really well and the guy is interested in expanding his company a bit. He told Eric he would like to talk things over with his wife and then he'll be in contact. This is going to be a great opportunity for Eric. He will get to do what he loves which is design and he will also be the production manager. I'm so proud of him!
God is amazing! That is all I can say. This morning after Eric got home from dropping me off at school, he sat down at the computer to research a few places to call. He was going to try and set up some appointments for next week. Right when he reached to push the power button on the computer his phone rang and it was the guy from Monday. He asked Eric if he could meet him at 12 today. Eric drove down there and the guy offered him the job! WOOHOO!!! He starts March 1st which is the Monday after we get back from the honeymoon.
This job is on the Kansas side down south and about a 45 minute commute without traffic from where I currently live. He would have to leave at least an hour early with rush hour, so we discussed the possibility of moving somewhere half way between his work and my school. We had been looking online and weren't sure about it. We went today after his appointment and looked at 3 places maybe; this is after Eric had looked at 2 this morning. We were somewhat discouraged but decided to drive out to one more place.
On the way out there; it was further from the highway than we wanted and I was about to say lets just forget about it and you can go look next week while you're here. Well then we pull up to the apartments. It's right off another main highway so the commute won't be bad for either of us. They are super nice! We're only getting a one bedroom to help save money, but the layout makes it feel so much bigger!
We will now be calling Lenexa, Kansas our new home! It is off 435 and 87th for those of you from Kansas City that read this.
Another fun thing we did while he was here is open joint bank accounts! It's getting so close until I become Mrs. Adcock. :)
