So... here we are, month 4 with basically all extra spending shut down. How's it going? Well, I have to tell you... not so bad really. Am I stressed that there's no job? I'll be honest. a little. But not as bad as you would think.
Why is that? Well... him:
Right now he's the happiest I think I've ever seen him. No job to dread going to - he's not much into the corporate race. I'm one of those fortunate women who has a husband who truly puts family first, before his career. He could care less about status and job titles - he just feels lucky that he gets to take the kids to school with me and hear about their days as soon as we pick them up. And he loves just spending time making memories together as a family. We have lots of late night laughs over backgammon & margaritas, lots of date lunches in the kitchen, a lot of fun together just sitting on the couch. Who's the lucky one here? me.
And, yes, he is still looking for a job (although, let's be honest, there's not really much out there job-wise) but he's also working on creating some new opportunities for himself. It's still in the works, so I don't want to share much now but he is a busy guy getting that geared up.
I saw this quote the other day...
He makes me feel like I won a contest I didn't even know I'd entered.
And I thought immediately of John. I'd be happy eating beans for the rest of my life as long as I got to do it with him.
