I need to update everyone on the job situation but first I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers...
So, Josh went yesterday for an interview with the railroad. It was an all day hiring session that he would go to the first part of the day and take tests and whatever the instructors wanted them to do and then they would take a break. After the break, they would come back and the instructors would call the names of the ones who would remain for a one on one interview and if your name wasn't called, you went home. Well, Josh wasn't called for an interview.
However, during the break, he got a call from the lady at the hospital that he had been going to for interviews and such and she offered him the job...which he, of course, accepted. He goes in on Monday for orientation and then we think he will start work next Friday. He will be working Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday every week, ten hour days. He went this week to the bus company that he used to drive for and asked if they would hire him back to work Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays since those were the only days he was off. They said yes and he went to get everything taken care of so we are waiting for everything to come back before he will start driving again...and that could take a few weeks.
There are still a few things that we are waiting on that have been a little stressful, but at least Josh has a job now...well, two jobs. We filed our taxes and we should be getting that money back soon and that will help my stress levels go down a ton...because all of that money will be going back into our savings.
We have been taking Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University and that is going to teach us how to save our money and be smart with the money we will be making and that will make me very happy! Josh won't be able to come with me anymore after this weekend because he will be working, but we will be able to go over it together and I am the one that deals with the money anyway...so I am excited to get rockin' and rollin'!
Thanks again for all of the prayers!!
