I am so excited to finally be able to make a post about Andrews new career move! If anyone didn't know, Andrew got laid off from his job of over 9 years due to corporate outsourcing. He got the summer off but couldn't really enjoy it as much as he would of liked because the future was always on his mind. He was applying to different positions at different companies that he normally wouldn't have the chance to try...! After many interviews, tests, and everything else that went with it....He got the position of our dreams, he will be driving for Port Authority Transit....the big city buses in Pittsburgh. We couldn't of dreamed of anything better. We are so excited, he starts his training September 22nd and will be on his own at the end of November.
This job has so many perks and has opened so many doors for us. Andrew officially made me withdraw from school (didn't take too much convincing) and just to concentrate on our kids and family....I will not even have to think about getting a job, he wants me to just be the best mommy that I can be and to continue doing my dream job of being a stay at home mom! ....do I hear more baby cries in our future.....hehe. We are also starting to take buying a house more seriously. We have started to make a "must have" list and a list that we can give or take on....even though buying a house will have to be another year or year and half we really want to keep a look out on areas and prices/size and things like that. Buying a house is going to be a long hard process for us because Andrew and I are very picky and know what we want, we don't want to settle for anything we don't deserve.
I am just so excited, the hours and stuff are going to be a big change for us, he will probably get the crappy hours and have to work weekends and holidays, but we look at it as more money in our pockets, we can always celebrate holidays later or on different days...right? It is all about family anyway!
Sorry, I just had to share my joy with the world, this is a huge change for our family and I just want to shout it from the top of the world!
