Josh has a job interview tomorrow and we are keeping our fingers crossed that he gets it. We aren't exactly sure what the pay would be (he will find out tomorrow) but the benefits are amazing and it will give him an opportunity to move up fairly quickly to better/more interesting/better paying jobs and more what he wants to be doing. Everyone please keep us in your prayers that he gets this job if it is the best thing for us (and if it will pay our bills). My fingers are crossed.
On slightly the same topic, I have been doing a lot of thinking about my job (my almost dream job) that we can't afford for me to begin the process of getting...so I am doing everything in my power to get as ready for it as I can, so that when we do have the money, I can jump in with both feet.
This job is, of course, Scuba Diving Instructor. I have to have all of my scuba equipment (and a lot of it before I even start taking the classes) so that is really what I am saving up for...and then of course I have to take the classes and work my way up to instructor (and I also want to do underwater photography)...but it is going to be a while before I can really get the ball rolling.
The Scuba shop that I am probably going to be getting a job with once I am an instructor (and also the place I am going to be doing all of my classes through) has a link with divessi.com to do a lot of online pre-classes. I have been doing those like crazy and I have been researching and reading and anything I can to be completely prepared.
I have also been emailing my instructor that I am going to take at least my first class with to let him know that I am still interested but we don't have the money to do it right now. He has been very understanding (it also helps that my dad knows him and most of the other instructors that work there) and very helpful with any questions I have about anything.
I can't wait to really dive in...haha...and Josh is completely supportive. I can tell that he wishes I could start right now and I know it bothers him that I can't, but he is doing his best. (And for those of you who know...that is high praise coming from me). I feel like, even though things are moving pretty slow right now, everything is finally starting to fall into place.
If Josh gets this job, or any better paying job with a better boss and more stable hours, the stress that is bothering both of us will all float away. And of course it will never completely go away...at least for me...but it will definitely help.
Thanks for all of the prayers and I will definitely update as I can! :)
