Brian's Job

So, Brian has accepted a job with NorthWest Cosmetics Lab in Idaho Falls, ID. It will be a full-time job and though Brian is not quite sure about the other details (benefits, exact salary, exact job responsibilities, etc.), he is certain that the job will pertain to his major as our friend, Mark Sunderland, who graduated with the same major that Brian has, is the one who got Brian this job. Brian is very excited and I... I have mixed feelings.
For one, I am very glad that Brian will have a full-time job considering I will be ending my full-time job soon. Also, Brian has plenty of time for a full-time job once this school semester ends because he will only be taking 6 credits in the Fall and we are not getting any Pell grant :) But, I was hoping we would get out of Idaho and so getting this job tells me that there is a good chance we will be in Idaho next summer. But, Brian will be actively looking for employment all over the United States and so I am very hopeful this is just a transition time.
With the job being in Idaho and Brian taking only 2 courses this fall with only 1 of those actually on campus, I have begun to think about the possibility of moving to Idaho Falls. Yes, we did just move in April but it makes sense to be closer to the place you go to more often where for this full-time job would be Idaho Falls. Plus, after August 15th, I will no longer be travelling to St. Anthony. So, it makes sense. We'll keep you posted.
So, I just want to say congratulations to my Brian for finding a full-time job that will support his family! He should start the job in mid-July after the summer semester ends.

Congratulations Brian!

And you not like Idaho anymore??

It's not that I don't like Idaho. It's that I don't like winters in Idaho. Also, there are so many great and fun activities you can do outdoors, but they require money! I miss being closer to big cities and you can't balme me for wanting milder winters!

Hi Brian & Meagan! I just happened across your blog and noticed you're looking at Idaho Falls for a place to live. I've been a Realtor here for 8 years now and it's a great time to buy so there may be some positive news about coming here! Also, congrats on graduation, your pregnancy and your new job Brian! Let me know if I can do anything for you!
