I got the job! Just got the phone call. I now have to go through a security background check and get my clearance then I can start. Thinking it will take 2-4 weeks as the government tends to move a little slow! (smiles) I had my interview 6 weeks ago and just received the call today.
Now what ths means for my family...Insurance for one!...plus benefits that are simply amazing. 13 sick days per year and 13 vacation days per year plus 10 paid holidays (yes that is 36 days per year) and it starts on day 1. You accumulate 8 hours per pay period (every 2 weeks). Plus a retirement plan that is quite nice. Best part is not worrying about getting laid off in the winter.
I am so excited I could bust!
Dave is finally slowing up a bit at work, nothing like pushing things to the last day as they usually end their season on the 15th of November.
Tanner is counting his days till he graduates (haha). He has plans on attending Mankato State next fall and will more and likely live with my sister and her husband while attending school. At least we have that much figured out. Mitchell is growing like a weed. We measured him in the garage over the weekend and he has grown 2 inches since June. No wonder I can't keep him in pants (jeans) as he grows out of them overnight. He is going to be tall like his Daddy!
Hope everyone is doing well, snow will be here soon, looking forward to the holidays. I have a great deal of shopping done already as I hate to wait until the last minute!
Take care all!
