We're planning a trip to NOVA next month to secure housing for around August 1. My house has been on the market for about 2 mos. with little activity, so I'm started to get a bit worried. My wife has put in only one application so far for a job, but is getting ready to start in earnest soon. It's hard to know how to time that just right. She's currently self-employed (she's a photographer), so she'll need to find a secure type of job until she can establish her busniess in a market 3000 miles away from where we are now. Oh the joys of a long distance move with a family!
