New Job!!!

Jason got a new job this week! An offer came from a competitor of his current employer and we couldn't resist. Same job, but with a promotion and a pay raise! Although slightly less hours which makes the pay raise equal our current income...BUT FOR LESS WORK!! Meaning he's HOME more often!! YAY!!!!

To be exact, instead of working for 2 straight weeks and then only having one week off (or less), he'll now work for those two weeks and then have TWO whole weeks home! And there are so many other benefits! Most importantly, he'll be more respected at this new company. Plus he's getting his foot in the door early which provides more opportunity for working his way up in the company down the road.

Initially we didn't think we wanted to change companies. He's spent 2 1/2 years working at his current job and didn't want to start over. We were comfortable. We weren't looking for a change. But we researched and prayed and it has just fallen into place and felt right. Surprise to us! And now we're so excited about the new opportunities headed our way!

And what am I most excited about?? Well, twice as much time with my hot hubby, of course!!! :)
