Soaking in the Summer Heat

Well, it has been a while since I posted.  There is still no news of a specific destination.  I have been busy traveling the highways, visiting old friends, spending time with family, and of course eating great food!   Life has been moving pretty fast in many ways, and yet it is my patience that I am having to employ as I wait for a phone call or a sign of the next step, place, adventure.   Today; being the ever practical and prepared person I am, the list of the ten potential cities for future residence if I do not receive a DODEA placement is being narrowed.  I spent much of the day doing research on Teaching License requirements, apartment pricing/ cost of living estimates, and looking at employment opportunities that are available in these potential communities.  While there is still a month left in the notification period, I am working very hard to be prepared to follow through with plan B or C by the end of August if I do not hear anything.  Amazingly, there is no worry- at least from me- as I believe that this is the right path to travel, and the path will become clear when it is supposed to.  So until then, I will enjoy spending time with loved ones and soaking in the Kansas summer heat!
