Hope

What I planned to do last night after work:
*Yoga
*Read (I have two books I'm trying to finish by the end of the week!)
*Make a good healthy dinner and pack and good lunch for today because I have back to back meetings

What I did instead:
*Laughed, cried, ate cake, and drank champagne because THE MISTER HAS A JOB!!!

He had an interview Friday, and we found out yesterday afternoon and we are so excited! For now it's seasonal (he'll be working for a family-owned gardening business), so he'll find out mid-June if he's getting picked up for the next season, but the owner already told him she's excited about what he has to offer, so hopefully if he works hard (which he will!), he'll get picked up again. He's so excited to be working for a family-owned business (he much prefers that to something big and corporate), and he starts training tomorrow!

I was calling people yesterday and I was overwhelmed by what an amazing support group we have. A dear friend told us to come over because she bought a bottle of champagne awhile ago, specifically for when Ben got a job and we needed to come drink it with her. That gesture alone almost brought me to tears.

So thanks, readers - for your thoughts, prayers, and well wishes. We really appreciate it. I'm off to go daydream about buying some brand-names at the grocery store this weekend.

Happy Tuesday!
