Hubby Job

I think Steve may have a new job.
We will know for sure on Monday ( he has to take an electronics test)

If you care at all about me, please send good thoughts, or prayers if that is your heart.

I know we aren't the only ones struggling, it has been a bad several years for many.

This isn't just a "job", this one could change our lives.
This could recover us, save us , take us back to where we were before everything fell apart 3 years ago.

I think I could sleep again, knowing that we could pay the power bill, and still buy groceries.
I think I could be confident in my marriage again, my Hubby would be home every night, no more traveling away to work.
And best of all, we'd have insurance again for the first time in 3 years.

I've been so afraid to hope that something good might happen for us , but this time, I think it's going to be okay.
I am letting myself hope.

So if you have a minute, if you want to , think a little happy wish for us.
I'd be ever so grateful for the good thoughts.

Be well!
Be Safe!

Buggah! You just ruined my makeup and it's only 8:30 am! But that's okay, this would be totally worth it.

I've got happy tears happening for you and Zuma. I'll keep everything crossed that I can physically cross and say some prayers and send all the good thoughts I can.

When bad stuff happens its difficult to remember that, just as suddenly as things can go bad, they can just as suddenly look good again. I've told myself that over and over again in the past year.

Today is the one year anniversary of Dave losing his job. It's been a rough week for a number of reasons but this news has made me so happy I can't even explain it. I sincerely hope that everything works out well. Not only for what it will mean for the Bug family but it would also make me happy to have something to celebrate on this day.

*huge hugs and good luck wishes*

Go get 'em Zuma honey!

My Bugaboo,

I have everything crossed and am hoping beyond hope.

And I'm praying that you'll make a good grandmother.

And? I'm wishing that you'll start enjoying the new tab and it's assorted whores.

Love you,

Warm thoughts frm me buggy! I hope he gets the job!!

We have no word yet on the job.
He took the electronics test today and isn't sure how well he did ( he studied, but said it was hard). They said they would let him know in a day or so.
It's such a good job! It would pay so well, it would have benefits!
It's everthing we need.

So while we are waiting to find out, his old boss called to offer him a job, the one he was working at in Florida, only this time it's in Houston. Doesn't sound like it's any more money than before, it's travel again, it's no benefits, it's contract labor which F's up our taxes ( we made next to nothing last year and we OWE money to the IRS.

I'm panicking! I'm freaked! On one hand he needs the work, like yesterday! On the other the good job is there, but it's not for sure.

I'm so scared I'm crying.

Quick! Somebody get me a whore Tab!

The Whore Tabs is the name of my band if I ever have one.

Thank you, Buggy.

Will be ok, babe. There's nothing else it can be, right?

That's it!
I am officially done hoping for anything better.
I can't take the dissapointment anymore.
I should know better than to get my hopes up by now.

If anyone needs me , I'll be in bed, crying.

Oh buggy, I'm sorry! Remember that sometimes things happen for a reason. Maybe a better job will come along soon, or maybe that one wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Keep up hope that SOMETHING good will come out of this. Until you can muster up some hope, we'll do it for you.

Awww Bug. I'm sorry, babe.

There's a stressed out manager up the page a little bit. Maybe he/she is hiring?

(Sorry, just trying to cheer you up a bit)

Oh bugaboo.

Does that mean you heard for sure "no"?

Um, mm is busy killing bugs in her blog. I think you should go take affront at that.

4:23 PM  
Blogger Buggy said...

We heard for sure, the answer was no.

Right now he is in some warehouse making $8.25 an hour.

The old job may still be on the table, but it's in Houston and it pays shit too.

I could cry ( some more)

Blogger Buggy said...

Shit. That sucks ass, Bug. Or it sucks bug asses. Either way,it sucks. I hope something else comes around. Maybe this is just fate. In two weeks you are going to hit the lottery and you'll both be glad he didn't get the job.
