Yesterday Marcus started work. Wahoo! That's right ladies and gentlemen. My husband is a workin' man now. A few months ago he was hired as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Kaiser Permamente, to start in September. This week he's doing all the orientation stuff, but the fun part is that a pay check will come with his name on it again. What a great feeling!
3 Cheers for Marcus!
I, also, have started working again. Last school year I was tutoring and that was good extra money. I say "extra," but let's be honest, nothing we earned was extra. All went to good use for basic bills. And, I've started up again, this school year already busier than last. I'm excited, but I also worry about juggling it all. I'm still trying to figure out if it's a blessing, or if I need to scale back. I guess we'll see how it goes and how much it will effect my family. It's hard, though, when you know you need the money for this or that. We recently bought 2 cars (post to come on that one), we still have to pay the insurance on one and the tax on the other, I want to get Samantha in this intensive therapy in Utah, and then all the other living life stuff. Well, we'll see.
For now, I remain grateful. Grateful for work and grateful for a place to live. I hope I remain grateful when Marcus gets home at 8pm and I've had to cook, clean up, gets kids ready for bed, get kids in bed...ya know, living like grown-ups again. It'll be a change, that's for sure, but I'm excited.
Again, 3 cheers for Marcus!
