The tunnel Ryan and I have been trekking through has a been seemingly long and discouraging. We have been job searching for the last 2 months in Kansas, hoping, praying and crossing our fingers. Waiting, and waiting for some good news. Finally, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Yesterday I got a call about the fitness center in Olathe, only to have news that made me only not want the job even more. I would only be part time, the pay rate was low and there was no massage guarantee-which is the only time I would be paid. I was trying to decide whether it was worth driving over an hour on the chance That I could make $20 that entire day or make $120. It was something I wasn’t going to shut out entirely in case the job Ryan wanted came through.
Well, this morning Ryan had a second interview in Topeka for the job he wanted….and HE GOT IT! My wonderful husband got the job!!! He is no longer ‘between careers’ and the company he is with has lots of income potential and company growth. Phew! What a relief! He should start the end of next week or the Monday after! Its bittersweet, in life you HAVE to have a job to live but I’m not going to lie…I’ve gotten quite used to being around him all the time! 🙂
Now that Ryan has a set job location, I can start really hunting for jobs in that area. It would be silly for me to work clear in Kansas City if he is Topeka. So now I have a better sense of direction. I have been doing really pretty well in Mary Kay, taking family photos & senior photos on the side and have a couple massage clients a week to bring in some, but that’s not near enough to contribute! So, hopefully soon I will finally have a job too, and life will begin to be going in the right direction!! 😀
