It Looks Like My Husband Has a New Job!

Wow. The Lord is so good, peeps. It looks like Mr. R managed to score a very good job in this crazy economy! It is not a done deal yet, but Mr. R's current company is aware that he is looking for another job, which is a bit scary. They can cut him off at any time if they wanted to be cruel. This new job is located in Daytona Beach, about 30 minutes northeast of where we live. Unfortunately, it is not local driving - yet. It seems that Mr. R would be driving between Daytona Beach and Winston-Salem, NC, which is the main headquarters for this company. So he would be gone every other day, instead of weeks at a time. Although we were initially aiming for Mr. R to be home every single night, we figured this was an excellent compromise for our particular situation. Also, the promise of a regular weekly paycheck (instead of the sporadic windfalls we get about once a month now) in an amount that was higher than we expected sealed the deal. In fact, the average weekly pay for this company was about $200 per week higher than the minimum standard we had set for him. So overall, we are happy with this deal. I'm also particularly happy because I'm the one who mentioned this company to him, and suggested that he drive to Daytona to fill out an application. So YAY, my interfering finally worked out! HOORAY!!!!!
Let's see, what else is going on. Nana is coming over to pick up Missy this morning, they are going to the beach. That means I will just have boys today. Tiger has his saxophone lesson today at 4pm. I have a department meeting at the hospital at 10am tomorrow and just realized Missy won't be home to babysit the boys. Oh well, Tiger is big enough now to watch himself and Bucket. It is kind of nice when they get old enough to care for themselves for a few hours.
Oh, and we rescued three feral kittens over the weekend. They are about 4 weeks old and cute as can be. Mean as heck though!
