Bobby got a job!!!

I should have posted this earlier, but Bobby got a job on Wednesday! He went in to the union hall and was able to get the job he wanted! When he left out that morning he was very excited hoping to get this job that was close to home... Well when he arrived home Wendsday night at around 6:20... he wasn't so excited anymore. He got it, but he hates it! He was in a terrible mood! I was so dissapointed for him. It is not as close to the house as he originally thought. It's close to 45 minutes away! And it's working 6 days a week, 10 hours a day! Don't get me wrong, of course he's excited about the extra money, but I know he hates having to give up his Saturdays! I hate it too! The kids and I are going to really miss him. They have such crazy rules at this place... he's not even allowed to bring his own tools home with him. He has to leave them there at work. They even make him remove his hard hat before he leaves, to make sure he hasn't stuck something under it, and they inspect his lunch box too! They obviously have a bad problem with stealing! How crazy is that! Anyway, as long as he can stick it out... which I know he can, we'll be making a lot more money each paycheck. That's wonderful! The only problem is that this job will be over probably in October or late September... So, we'll be back to the whole out of work thing again!

Thank you everyone for your prayers! It meant so much to me!!!

I'm so glad he found something. Maybe something better will come along when this contract is up!

I was going to e-mail you today to check on you. Praise the Lord for the new job! Hopefully things will work out & it will last longer. I'll pray he falls in love with this new job. :)

Great that he has something for now though. My hubby had a job for about a year that he hated. It was terrible so I feel for you (and him). Start praying now for just the right job when this one is done!

That's fantastic news Courtney. Congratulate Bobby for me and I'll pray that he grows to like his job.

Take care,
