Catching up

I feel like I have so many things to post about today! So, thanks in advance for sticking with me!

Marti's job

So, you may recall that several weeks ago, I posted about the stress I was facing with Marti's job. Things have been BAD for a while now financially. It's been a LONG time (almost 2 years) since he's had a steady paycheck. He was selling insurance which is just not an easy way to make a living. Well, I'm happy to report that my dear husband has found a job... and not just ANY job... a job that he really really really wanted. He had to go through several rounds of interviews, but it was worth it in the end. He worked for this company years ago and always said that he regretted leaving. So, we know that this is a good thing.

He's waiting for the results of his drug test to come through, so if they get those today, he can start Monday. I can't even tell you the relief I feel as I type this. The best news of all is that this job is up in the area where we used to live. We moved down here 3 years ago for a job that didn't work out, and we've both been wanting to move back closer to our family. So, he's going to commute for now, but we both hope that everything works out so that we can move back up there in the next year or so! YAY!

Oh my goodness! I can't believe my perpetual calendar was chosen as the hybrid project of the day! I am shocked and THRILLED!
