I'll bet some of you thought we were going to stay put here in our newly-purchased home in Cache Valley for a while. I know I did. Well, joke's on you (and me)! We are moving to...
Pennsylvania! As you can see from the map, it's a long way from home. Tyson received a promotion/transfer from his work. We didn't have to take the job, but we decided it is a good step to take for his long-term career. My feelings are a little mixed. I'm excited about the new opportunity, and the adventure, but I'm very sad to move away from all our dear family and friends.
The plant where Tyson will be working is in Souderton, which is in the Philadelphia suburbs about 30 miles northwest of downtown Philadelphia (lower right corner of the map below). Don't worry, that 30 miles takes almost an hour and a half to drive, the way the traffic and roads are out there.
So, this will be a huge move of over 2000 miles, with two kids, two cars, and a houseful of stuff. You'd think we'd give ourselves at least a couple of months to make it happen, right? No way! We're Heatons! That's not how we do things! Tyson accepted the job offer on March 8th, and his first day is April 1st. His last day of work here is March 23. We're still working out the details. There's a possibility the kids and I may stay behind for a few weeks or a few months, or we might try to make it happen all at once.
Job #1 is finding a renter for our house. We just barely bought it, so we don't want to sell it at this time. If anyone knows anyone looking for a nice three bedroom 2.5 bath townhome in Cache Valley, please send them our way!
