Big {Job} News

 

Today my husband starts his new job!

Those who have been following my blog for a couple years will remember that my husband had a job as a treasurer for one of the towns around here.  Well, a few weeks ago he got a new job as accounting supervisor for a big suburb! 

Derek is so smart, and he works so hard to provide for us – I am so blessed to have that man!  I know he’s going to do great in his new position.  We’re so grateful that the Lord provided us this opportunity.

Right now Derek is planning on commuting and we’re just going to stay where we are, unless we decide at a later point that the drive is just getting to be too much (but we’re kind of used to driving all over the place).

One part of the good news for our family is that this new job comes with a new salary, which should allow me to go down to just one day at work!  I talked to my boss about dropping Thursdays, and I think it’s going to work out – she’s just trying to figure out when to make the switch. 

I’ve been getting a little weary of leaving Wyatt two days in a row, because I feel like I hardly get to see him for two days – working one day a week would be about perfect, I think!  I’ll also maybe get to go to MOPS, finally.  All the MOPS groups around here seem to meet on Thursdays.

This new job will also be great because there is a lot more opportunity for advancement than in Derek’s previous job, and he’ll get the supervisory experience, which will look good on his resume.

I know he’s going to be the best accounting supervisor there is, and I am so proud of him!

What exciting news! Congrats Derek. Sounds like a great career move. If you guys end up moving, I hope that means closer to me ;). We might actually get to meet in real life. If you are looking for a MOPs group, my mom teaches during the PM MOPs at your church. She is with the teen MOPs table, but there are a lot of other groups with ladies your age.
