We are here, we are here, we are here!!

We arrived in California this past Wednesday, braving storms and deserts to get here...haha. Maybe cold deserts, but definitely the storms. There is a mountain pass about two and a half hours outside of Vacaville we had to go through as it was the fastest way. Lucky us, we caught it right in the middle of a snow storm. It had snowed the night before as well and there were "chain checks" for snow chains before we were allowed to go through. So Josh and I were forced to buy 70 dollar chains. yuck. But they ended up being quite useful. We probably would have died without them. Or ended up in a snow bank. No exaggeration. It was a stressful, white knuckle experience. So we were both very grateful for the prayers said before the trip and in our behalf!
Since we've been here, Josh has already started working and on his first day (yesterday) got a sale! I'm so proud of how he is handling his team and teaching them. He is such a great leader, and one of the rookies yesterday even had something to show for it with his own sale on his very first day. As for me, I will start work sometime next week. We're waiting on my drug test results.
Other things: Josh and I both came down with some weird bug when we first got here. Just headache and dizziness/ maybe fever. Who knows? But I think we're getting over it. hopefully...Pippin is getting used to the new apartment. We follow him around everywhere just to make sure he's not going to claim anything in a nasty way. Silly boy.
That's about it! We're not that exciting, but we love our life.
