The good, the bad, and the good.

There is quite a bit of news this week. In the good news - Zeb started a new job on Monday. A huge weight was lifted immediately. He's working at a real estate development company that handles all the government housing projects in Baltimore. He, of course, has a lot to learn but he thinks he will enjoy it. Perhaps not start a career enjoy, but definitely make a year or two interesting enjoy. It snowed! It's pretty. Zeb finished his final paper meaning he's pretty much done for the semester!
In the bad news- I lost my job. The restaurant is closing for an extensive remodel until the spring. We have three weeks to either file for unemployment or find new jobs, which is not as easy in this town as it might seem. That pesky weight came back again. You can whip out the prayers if you want.
In the good news- I got a promotion right before I lost my job. All sorts of benefits that would have started in January right as we're now closing. Ironic. But nice to be appreciated. Best of all the Culvers turn six months old on Sunday. And, as the boy texted the other day "It is impossible to be in love and to be poor...and we love each other."

Is that the view from your window? Lovely. Maybe I'll move to Maryland, but then I would need a job there so maybe not.

I have a google account, so now I can comment!

You didn't tell me about the promotion - congratulations!

Melanie said...

Oh, and yeah for six months! - you are not poor indeed.

We're celebrating our vigesimal month of marriage on the 22nd (doesn't that sound nasty? Brian found that word in the dictionary the other day.)

I love it. This has always been our motto as well. Good thing since after being together for over 20 years, we're still poor, but still deeply in love.
