2 Income Family {Again}

.
It's finally happened....Rusty is now employed!

I know, exciting isn't it? Oh...well it is for me. It's taken a lot of applications, interviews and {unwanted} rejections but it's happened and I couldn't be happier. It may not be everyone's type of 'ideal job', it's retail but I'm sure Rusty would tell you it's 'manly' retail ha-ha, and it's a pay check none the less.
.
He's heading to the location today to sign all the tax papers & find out more on his schedule (I'm sure he'll get the crappy hours because sh*t rolls downhill but whatevs).

I feel like a weight has been lifted, I'm no longer the only one bringing money to the table and I have high hopes that we'll finally be able to save something (I'll take $50 a month as long as we can save it) towards a future home. It's not bad being a renter but I'd like to know that if I don't like something about the house I can change it, because it's mine.

So yeah, today is a great day & I feel like my insides are throwing a little party...if nothing else goes right today at least we know that we're going to be somewhat OK financially and I no longer have to stress about not having enough money to make my car payment or that our phones might be disconnected.

I know this great feeling isn't going to last forever, I'll probably go back to bitching about everything something soon but for now I'm going to enjoy this feeling for as long as I can :)

Happy Thursday!

Its so tough when one person has to carry the weight on thier shoulders (its tough on BOTH people!) and I know its such a relief that now there is a little breathing room! Even if its not a "dream job" it doesn't matter- work is so hard to come by these days so congrats! and you never know, every opportunity is just that, an opportunity- it can always lead to some great things!
