transitionI guess it’s my turn to say good-bye.  Although I tend to agree with the saying that says there are no ends, just new beginnings. Whenever we come to a new chapter in life, it’s really just a transition, not an end.   When we reach a bend in the road, things change.   We change.  We adapt.  We move on.  We let things go.  We get accustomed to our new life.  Everything we do now was once new.  Sometimes what was once our everyday stops, and then what was new becomes our everyday.  With each transition comes new struggles  – but also new adventures and new blessings.

We are all transitioning as the Oilfield changes.  For some it means new careers.  For others it means sticking with the same and hoping for the best.  I’m one of the ones sticking with the same, at least for now. My Hot Oil Man is still employed and we’re hoping to ride it out.

As one thing stays the same another changes.  It’s not an end, just a transition.

I have enjoyed writing for Real Oilfield Wives and I will miss the support of all the wonderful women here.  So I say good-bye as we let things go and transition into the next beginning. I hope the very best for everyone as they also transition into the next phase of their lives. God Bless!

About jenna

Jenna has been an oilfield wife for over 12 years. Her Hot Oil Man husband started working in the oilfield a few months before they were married. The oilfield has lead them all the way from Northern CO to Alaska, where they've lived in the Matanuska Valley for 4 years. The family consists of their two children; a strong-willed daughter age 10, and a goofy son age 7. And of course what family would be complete without a couple of dogs and rabbits thrown in the mix. Jenna is a stay at home mom who doesn't “stay at home” much, and enjoys gardening, baking, reading, watching movies, four wheeling, hiking, fishing, and LOVES shopping. Since moving to the last frontier they have also started home schooling, which is another adventure all it’s own.

    Hi Jenna!
    I’m goito miss your posts. Yours we always my favorites. I felt like you really “got” what my life was like sometimes. Last week we found out that my husband finally got the axe when his off shore rig was pulled in for indefinite repairs. It’s weird to feel at loose ends after so many years of living hitch to hitch, and wondering what’s next for us. I hope everything is well for all of you in Alaska.

    • I hope things are working out for you! Has your husband found work yet? My husband is still employed and we are OK, although they have cut his hours. Alaska as a whole is struggling economically right now, but we’re hanging on.

      • We are still unemployed and searching. Lots of applications but no jobs. He has applied in Alaska though, so perhaps we’ll become neighbors! With gas prices going up perhaps things will get better!
