Jeff is in orientation for his new job today. We had expected him to get about three 12-hour shifts in a two-week period, and maybe he could pick up some extra hours along the way. It didn't sound like much, but it was more than he is currently making at Domino's.
Well, he just called to tell me that they are going to train him in CICU (cardiac ICU) and MICU (medical ICU) - and he will get three shifts a week! The pay is great, and I am ecstatic. Three shifts are manageable for him, even in school. Plus he'll be working nights, so he'll actually see us more than he would have otherwise.
You can't imagine how much pressure this will take off of me. I'm finally going to get a break and not have to be the main breadwinner for the family. Plus he's going to have benefits, which will allow me to back off my hours when school starts in the fall. There's no need for me to quit, but I am looking forward to slowing the pace a little so I can focus more on my studies.
God is good!!
