Two Shoes Tuesday

Josie of Two Shoes in Texas does a weekly meme called Two Shoes Tuesday.

Here's her simple rules:

There will be TWO word prompts each week... you can use whichever one inspires you! You are not required to include them both. You do not have to include the word in your post, but please use it as your theme. You are welcome to write a post for each prompt word, if you like. Posts unrelated to either word prompt will be deleted from the Mr. Linky list. The two word prompts this week are Change and/or Season.

Hubby and I have had so much change in the past few years that it scares me, wondering what's next. We started in southern CA where we both had good jobs making fairly good money. We had a great life. Then his job transferred us first to Vegas, then Phoenix, then Tucson, and back to Phoenix all within a 5 year period. Crazy!
Next stop was Atlanta to be near one of the kids. I no longer worked, was told I was in stage 4 liver disease and had 2 months or less to live. Had a transplant with lifelong complications. Hubby had an ok job. $10 an hour would not have worked in CA but is good for Atlanta. That job transferred us here- to a tiny town in Arkansas. Right after we moved here- they closed. We had no money to move back and there is no place to work here unless you farm. Hubby was a white collar worker, not a farmer. The government pays me a tiny salary and hubby now works as a cashier at the local store making a quarter above minimum wage. We don't live, we exist.

I am not complaining, we are happy. But change- Please no more change for us unless it's for the better. Neither of us can take much more change.

me in the middle. Phoenix was a happy time.
