Seriously at this point you guys know I'm not a patient person.
My mother can attest to this, as I'm sure some of my friends, and I KNOW D would say that I'm many things... patient not one of them. Considering I asked him to marry me multiple times and bought the wedding dress before he ever asked me to marry him... (I knew he was a sure thing!)
Anyways the point of all this is that I'd love to fast forward and have the results and say either WOOHOO or BOO HISS... You've got to be kidding etc. I thought about calling and begging and asking if it was possible to move the appointment up and then my mom came home and announced "I'm going to go with you and D to church Wednesday night." First this made me speechless because my mom hasn't stepped foot into church for at least 8-10 months. The minister said something that ticked her off... don't ask - I'm not sure. You'd have to know my mom to know this was a monumental thing for her to say it to us. So when D heard this he looks at me and goes... we can't reschedule, we just have to take what we've got and hope for the best.
If you imagined my smile of torture you'd be about right. So no on the reschedule... D felt it was more important to go to church and count our blessings... and to hopefully get my mom less angered at the minister. With us gone she's going to need adult interaction.
So did I tell everyone that my husband agreed to this new position without asking about wages, benefits, probationary period, etc. Seriously... he said yes and didn't have a CLUE how much he'd be getting paid per hour... If you can imagine me wanting to strangle him you'd be right. Those are big things to ask... how about - does your benefits include infertility coverage because my wife really wants that included... Oh and it'd be nice if her doctor was a participating provider both the RE and the OB/Gyn who's her family doc.
Nope he didn't call back and ask those questions...He called and found out that they're in negotiations right now with their contract and the chief gave him some figures which ended up that he'll most likely be taking a pay cut. On the bright side benefits start on the first day he works... so that's good. No clue WHAT those benefits are, but at least they start when he does. Always having to find the bright side... I guess the best part of all this is that in 3 weeks D will be waiting for me whenever I come home in the morning... and that makes whatever the pay cut is worth while...
