Will you accept

So we got our bid list for our second assignment on Monday. We have about a month to research all seventeen of the posts and then rank them as a high, medium, low fit for our family. With two school age kids (eek, Clarissa is starting Kindergarten next year!), that is the most important thing to us.

That being said, I feel a bit like the Bachelor (or Bachelorette depending on the season) (yes, I know it is a horrible show to be drawn into......).

As we read a post report and watch a video, you start to fall in love with that post (just like the bachelor does on a date). You begin imagining your future at that post.

Then, just like a new date card being delivered, you begin researching another post and you fall in love with that post too.

How can I be in love with more than one post?!?!?!

But you have to be careful, because ultimately we don't decide (the CDO does), so you don't want to get your heart shattered if our rose doesn't get accepted......

Coming up later during the most dramatic bidding season ever, the sleepless nights awaiting the email with our next post, how do the kids react, the phone call to tell our parents where to book their next plane ticket too, planning the move to the most romantic location in the world, you will not want to miss it!


  1. Ah, yes decisions decisions and then wait, wait and wait

  2. Getting that bid list is one of my favorite parts of the FS. For a few short weeks, the world is our oyster, and we could literally go ANYWHERE. It's so exciting! Good luck!
