but it is all a bitter sweet answer to our prayers! we have been having such financial issues that even with the 20+ hours of overtime we're struggling. but in a good way! we are finally getting all our back bills paid and catching up. it feels good.
His working hours have been a sore point for us in the past-- well, because, he has his college classes on top of his working hours, too-- but I am finally learning to come to terms with it. After years. I have spoken to him about our priorities though, to make sure I didn't marry a workaholic! He isn't though.

Hmmm, dreaming of an LDS natural parenting commune . . . :
