Oh, the places you’ll go!

At Brian’s Interim Manager (IM) graduation ceremony they shared some wise words from a well-known doctor  — Dr. Seuss, that is. The book Oh, the Places You’ll Go! seems to be fitting for our IM adventure. Here’s a few exerts..

Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You’ll be on your way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers
who soar to high heights.

Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way. 

Our mountain was literally waiting at our first assignment — Huntsville, Alabama. We are staying by the lovely Monte Sano mountain on the outskirts of town.

We moved on Sunday and things haven’t slowed down yet. After living in 700 sq feet in Brumby, our 3-bedroom apartment feels SO spacious. Never has (or will be!) moving in been so easy – with a furnished apartment there was no heavy lifting, the bed was made, and clean towels awaited. I could get used to this! 🙂

It’s not all fun and games, as Brian has a demanding work schedule. And at some point, maybe I’ll let him update you on that arena. But for now, I can blog about my domain — family activities and the keeping the home.

We’re making a list of fun things we’d like to do (as Brian’s busy work schedule permits!). Here’s a few:

– play disc golf at Monte Sano State Park
– visit the US Space and Rocket Center
– go to Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro
– hike the 1 mile trail from our apartment complex up the mountain
– eat at one of the many authentic German restaurants in the area

Been to Huntsville before? Let us know what to add to our list!

  1. A guy ran into me in huntsvie. he was distracted by a chicken wing which he finished eating before puling over to the shoulder of the road. Womp.

    • Not cool. If it was Chick-fil-A I might be able to understand…

  2. Just now catching up on your blog. I had no idea about all of your big life changes. Praying for you guys as you kick off your adventure 🙂 Maybe we can come visit some weekend, now that y’all are closer!
