This has been SUCH a good week!
Gorgeous weather all week. Yesterday, we hired a midwife (yay!). Today, my DH got a job offer!!! He's been unemployed for a year and a half, and has had such a long and frustrating job search. And add a new baby on the way on top of it all, and things were looking pretty stressful! But a company interviewed him a week ago today, and already decided to give him a job! We're thrilled! It's going to be a 90-day contract through the recruiting company, and then they'll hire him personally and permanently if they decide they like him well enough (and I don't doubt they will!).
I'm so thrilled!
But at the same time (and I don't doubt pregnancy hormones are playing at least a slight part in this), I'm dealing with some sadness. I've had a whole year and half to have my husband around practically 24/7, helping me with the house, helping me with the kids, keeping an eye on the littles if I need to run an errand.... and now he'll be gone almost all day (especially since it will be about ~1hr commute each way), and I know I'll miss his company, and I'll definitely miss his help. And especially since I'm pregnant, I'll have to push myself not to fall behind on things around the house, or get too lazy to play with my youngest. And it's all happening so fast! They wanted him to start on Monday - in FOUR DAYS! - but he got it pushed to Wednesday so he'd have a little extra time to hunt for a 2nd vehicle (so I'm not stranded at home on top of being lonely!).
Okay, but seriously! I'm still thrilled! It's been SO LONG since we've had a job, and we needed it SO much. DH needed it especially - not working has been such a strain on his self-worth and self-esteem. And it will be so nice knowing we can actually afford this baby, lol!!
