After 3-1/2 Years of Unemployment, Husband Just Got Hired! Happy V-Day, Indeed! [View all]

Last edited Thu Feb 14, 2013, 04:08 PM - Edit history (4)

Oh. My. God. I'm in tears right now. One of the companies my husband has been doing occasional contracts for called him in to tell him they're hiring him as of March 1. I'm in shock and blissful disbelief! We've struggled for so long I can't remember how it feels to just be able to have a good night's sleep. Anyway, I just wanted to share our good news with DU. What a GREAT V-Day!

Update: And I've been given a whole mess of Valentines by several DUers??? I'm literally speechless and we all know what a rarity that is. LOL! OMG. Thank you!
