Ahem…An Announcement, Please:


He got the call this morning, and will start on July 10. He was offered near the bottom of the pay range, but it’s still more than he makes now, and the job will have regular raises, unlike the job he has now, which has offered no raises.

He’s already turned in his resignation letter, and we are both overjoyed at the prospect of having a little more money each month, as well as a job for him that doesn’t leave him depressed. And it’s good timing, too: yesterday we had to take one of our cats to the emergency vet (he should be fine, but the bill hurts), and our dishwasher started spewing forth sudsy water onto the kitchen floor when we ran it yesterday. Plus I still have no A/C in my car.

That is all for now. I will be back later with a post about the conversation I had with another mom this weekend about the fact that my daughter is abnormally large.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS AARON! This is awesome for you guys! Money is always great but being happy…that is always better than money any day…the money is just a perk of being happy I say!

  2. Woo-hoo! See, I told you karma would eventually come back with the good stuff. :-)

    Congrats! Hope the kitty is okay.

  3. Awesome! I’m soooo glad.

  4. Congratulations to Aaron!! What a great start to the week.

  5. YAY for Aaron! Congratulations to you both!!!

  6. Congrats on the new job! I would love for that to happen for my husband. He really hates his job! Go out and celebrate!

  7. Yay!!!!! We knew it all along, of course, but it’s great to get the confirmation. Exactly the same scenario at my house: hubby got the job, and the money is starting lower than we had hoped, but still good and it can only get better.

    Oh, and did I mention? Yay!!!!!

  8. HOORAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Congratulations!!!

    Looking forward to your next post – I’m already laughing. I think I can relate: Sweet Pea has always been so tall with a large head, etc. that since before she was a year old people have consistently thought she was a year older than she was.

  9. Congrats, that’s awesome news!

    Looking forward to the next post.

    My girl is huge–13 months and 27 pounds!

  10. Yipppppeeeee!

    I am glad it worked out for you both! State jobs are cushy too.

    BTW–It is so weird that you want to come join our supper club, because we were going to ask you! Four of us read your blog regularly. I hope it doesn’t feel as if we are stalking you! LOL. I think the next one is Wednesday, July 19th. We haven’t decided a time or place, but it will be in the C-bus area.

  11. Mommy off the Record says:

    Yay!! *cheering wildly in your corner*

    I am so happy for you guys! Be sure to get out and celebrate. This is big stuff.

    HOOOORAY! So pleased for you. Just a few more bucks makes a big difference, doesn’t it?

    So very happy for you.

    ps- Emmie is in the 97th percentile for height. 97!


    With regards to your dishwasher et al, isn’t it crazy that when it rains it pours? Jeez…

    And what is the deal with that conversation about your daughter? Abnormally large? Hmm…

  14. Yay Aaron! I’m so happy for all of you. I know what it’s like to have a husband that is unhappy with his job. I can’t wait until The Hubby can make the Big Switch!

  15. YAY Aaron!!

    Will wait on pins and needles for the
    next conversation……..

  16. The Flip Flop Mamma! says:

    Yay for you guys!!!!I’m hoping I will have news of this sort in a couple months…shhh…I can’t post about it (people at hubs job read my blog.)

  17. Congrates to Aaron and Whopeee to you all for the extra $$$

  18. HOOOOO-ray!
