Within a week of Shaun's company announcing a major reorganization (which will include an unspecified number of lay-offs in Boise), I learn that an Anthropologie store will be opening 12 blocks from our house.
Our family has lived in three states and one foreign country in the past seven years, and I'm usually up for adventure by the time it becomes a necessity. But, for the first time, I don't feel ready to move on. We're only starting to get settled. And we did move to Boise on purpose. I'm hoping the Big Plan is not going to require us to hightail it out of here quite yet.
It would be nice if we knew WHEN we will know. Some people will be let go right away, but the whole process may take up to a year. My first thought was that living day to day with so much uncertainty would be egregiously stressful. Then I realized that this is the true state we are living in all the time. It is good to be reminded (cliched schmaltzy conclusion alert!) that we never know what the next day will bring, only that God will walk through it with us.
