Timing couldn't be worse... or better??

To tell you the truth, he hated his job. He was thinking of quitting (which does not provide you the great severance package he got!) and going back to school anyways, but never really looked into programs or followed up on that. In addition, I applied for my dream job in Ottawa in December, and I almost didn't because I didn't want him to have to start over again and look for a job if we did end up moving.
Now we are both seeing this as a "sign" that big changes may be in the works. I will be interviewing for the job in early February, and already know that my chances of landing it are very good. All my family lives there, as do many of his closest friends, plus we want to raise our future kids in a completely bilingual environment, so have been talking about moving to Ottawa on and off since the start of our relationship. So I guess, all in all, great timing! But still a bit of a shock (see, mixed feelings, sigh...).
He's so cute: we're in the midst of home-renos and now he's all keen to become Mr. Fix-It AND make sure dinner is waiting for me when I get home :-)
I just have to get used to the idea that for the time being (and maybe a few years if he does indeed go back to school), we will be a single salary couple. At this point, the most important thing is that we have each other and we'll get through no matter what! Also, we have an amazing wedding to look forward to, and now that he has free time during the day, he's already started helping out with planning :-)
Thanks for letting me vent, no one knows yet (friends or family)...
