When we moved to Ohio 6 months ago we knew it would be temporary. Jed would write his dissertation, we'd apply for teaching jobs and we'd go where the job offers took us. Then Jed heard about a teaching position in China. He applied. I decided not to worry about it. Then he got an interview. I figured I still didn't need to worry about it. They offered him a job (but we didn't get the notice until two weeks after the initial offer was extended due to the school typing Jed's name wrong in his email address). We had to decide fast. And the decision... we're moving to China! For two years, starting this August we'll be living in Beijing, the capital of China. According to Buddy, one of the Pros of this move is that Beijing is like the New York City of China. Unfortunately that just makes me more nervous. I teeter totter between panic and excitement then remember we have nearly 6 months to figure it all out. It'll definitely be an adventure, right?! :)
