Much like when women don't want to announce their pregnancies until they're out of the first trimester, (no, I'm not pregnant), we were pretty sure Kurt got his awesome new job, but I didn't want to say anything until it was official.
So, it's official!
He gets to buckle his briefcase purse thing and walk down the hill to the train and ride it for free into the city where he'll spend the day in a beautiful and historic building at the one of the most prestigious universities in the country. From now on, that's how he'll spend his life.
Not to mention that our girls can go to college for free, if they get good enough grades to get in.
Not to mention it's a little bit more money for our family.
Not to mention that his place of business will never be in trouble, business will never be ailing. He will get raises every year, like a person should.
Not to mention that my husband never has to account for another piece of plywood, ever again.
I've only spoken to him on the phone, I haven't seen him yet.. but I can guarantee that he's going to be smiling a prrrretty cute and proud of himself smile when he walks in the door.
I asked what we should do to celebrate and he said, "Make my favorite dinner and get a delicious desert and everybody should be chanting 'Dad-dy! Dad-dy!'"
It's true that his favorite dinner is veggie chicken nuggets and tater tots. It's his special day, so we'll let this fact slide.
So, after months of stressing out about our job and money and stability situation, it's all over. I can stop getting sick every two weeks, now, okay immune system? If you want to shower Kurt with congratulations, you can find him here.
