My fella got a job! Sort of! LOL!
Many of those of you who've been following my blog know that my fella has been out of work since last December. It has been really tough, as you can imagine. I have a very good job and my pay covers all of our bills, but without the fella's contribution we haven't had money for extras like, oh you know, health insurance and money to replace the long list of things that have broken down in the last year like the second car, the vacuum cleaner, the microwave, the hot tub, my daughter's DVD player, etc. There was no money for vacation. I had to buy my daughter's winter coat at the Goodwill. You get the idea. It hasn't been fun.
So I am very happy to report that he found a part-time job on a trial basis. So if everything works out, he'll be working 20-30 hours a week after he trains for one day this week and one day next. The job pays once a month so we won't have any money until February (except a very small check around 1/1).
So yeah! I am a little hesitant to get too excited. There are lots of things that could still go wrong and since it is a trial basis they might not like him after the first couple of days, but if everything works out, things will be getting better very soon!
