re-arranging our mornings

now that hubby is back to work our morning routine has changed. he used to get up and feed the critters while i showered and got dressed for work. now he leaves earlier than i do and he needs to shower first. we get up a bit earlier and he gets in the shower and dresses while i feed the critters and pack our lunches. then he makes his coffe and i shower and get ready for work. we even have a few minutes to sit and talk or watch the news before we leave. i am loving mornings again. it was so hard to get up and go to work while he was at home all day. this is so much better.

1 week

so hubby started the week of a heatwave here in the good ole delaware valley. extreme heat and humidity and lots of work including overtime the first week. one day getting home at 10 of 7 and the other getting in at 6pm. we are both tired and ready for the weekend. beer is in my car and work is almost done. see you monday

he started

hubby started work on monday. i am so happy and relieved. no more worries about paying the mortgage. no more walking a fine line every month and barely paying the bills. come july hubby is back to paying the electric bill and groceries and at least 1 other bill. not sure which one but an extra one. once that starts i go into pay all the credit cards off mode. i have a plan and hopefully things will go smoothly and we will have even more savings in case this happens again.

waiting on pins and needles

hubby got a job. 2-1/2 years of not working is coming to an end. all he needs now is a start date. that is the toughest thing right now i want to celebrate but i am afraid until he starts his first day of work. then the last of the weight holding me down in fear will finally leave. i can't wait to be free. to not pay every bill and worry about having money for groceries and gas. to be able to pay off my credit cards not just the minimum. to go to the store and buy something without needing it to be the cheapest price i can find and stocking up when i see good sales with coupon deals. just to loosen my budget and breathe again. maybe even go out to dinner. so for now i wait sitting on pins and needles trying to find the last of my patience.
