That means my Hubby is home.
It's our first day of the 20% pay cut, and I told him he could sleep in.
He deserves it.
He is completely awesome. For the last 12 years since I stopped working, he's gotten up, taken the kids to school, and has gone to work to make our lives what they are. And they are full. All the kids have extra-curricular activities thanks to dad. They all have special toys, electronics, and take cool vacations thanks to dad's amazing work ethic.
He deserves to sleep in today.
He's also applied for another job. In town. A step-up, a managerial position.
While he may not be 100% qualified, one door is partially ajar and another has opened and offered itself.
We aren't holding our breath. It may not be exactly what we want, but in this economy you really can't be too choosy.
I love the strength and positive attitude my husband has. I envy it. He doesn't give up.
I'm still in denial.
Plus, I went to the school district and they are not taking substitute applications, it's bad for everyone in education right now, I know that. I still take it personally and sulked about it all day yesterday.
Possibly in the fall I can apply.
I have to admit it. I don't want to work just anywhere. I know money is money and it's very selfish on my part, but it's true. I want to do what I love. Or at least what I could like a little. Right now things aren't terrible, just bad. Things can change though, for better or worse and I'm not ready to don the McDonald's uniform. There I said it.
----Update 8:37 am, and he's up and playing poker with K. He just told me he's happy to spend the day with us. I married a saint.
