Why Hello There

Behind the scenes around here we have been scrambling to secure a future.  Mr Renn's residency goes through the end of June and then we need somewhere else to go.
This puts Mr Renn and I in an interesting predicament.  We have to make big decisions.  together.  That requires an awful lot of effective communicating (which requires staying awake through conversations).  I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one with a spouse who struggles on this point.
But there are some boys who are relying upon us to take care of them and provide them with a life where they can thrive.

And that's not a responsibility we're apt to take lightly.  So the search is on, in earnest.  Somehow or other we are going to choose between good and hard, and good and hard, and better and hard.  That will involve prayer, fasting, and frequent temple attendance.  (Huge perk to living in Utah - frequent temple attendance is possible).  Any other tips for making life-altering decisions as a couple?

I can completely relate on the spouse-sleeping-through-conversations front as well as the job hunting front. We do pretty much the same things you are. Fasting, prayer, temple attendance, and we (and by "we" I mean "me") make lists to keep all the options straight and the pros and cons of each one.

Nothing is irreversible. If you make a decision, and later it turns out to not make you as happy as you had hoped, you can always make a change. Everything happens for a reason.

And plan on losing money. It always happens. I'm not bitter about that--just realistic. Fortunately you are coming into the part of life where it won't make as big a difference as it has in the past. Yay for a paycheck!!
