Exciting news that I've forgotten to share is that I have gotten an awesome new job offer!!
I'm still eagerly awaiting news of the Dream Job, although at this point, I'm seriously doubting they'll ever get back to me. With this new opportunity though, I'll be far less crushed when it inevitably doesn't happen.
It's going to be very hard work, and somewhere around sixty hours a week, but I'll be raking in enough money that Hubbs and I will no longer have to struggle, and stress, and freak out about how we're going to pay our bills the next month.
We'll actually be able to pay off ALL of our debts, with the exception of student loans, and let's face it, people wind up paying those off till they're around forty anyway.
The other nice part, is that if I don't get the Dream Job, this job will wind up paying far more, but doesn't have the same longevity that the Dream Job would. Who knows, maybe we'll stick around and but a house here. Even if we could buy three in the Dream Job location for the price of one here. That part kind of sucks. There are some nice townhouses and condos and such here, but it's such a huge amount of money for just a small two bedroom, two bathroom place barely larger than our apartment now.
We did have our hearts set on leaving here for good come the new year, but it's looking more and more likely that isn't going to happen. Oh well, life apparently has different plans for us than we did. We are extremely happy though that this time, life's plans were far better than our own for once. =)
