I have the best kind of news.

After two years and four months of a combination of un-/under-employment, my husband unexpectedly landed the job of his dreams.  The exact type of job he wanted when he signed up for that engineering college originally.


Pony doesn't care, as long as I can continue to pay for his treats.  That's the only skin he has in this game, or so he thinks.
This job will have him traveling to a different client site each week, flying out Monday morning and flying back Thursday evening.  On the horse front, this means:

- I get tons of guilt-free barn time - married ladies, you know what I mean.
- I can feel less guilty about spending money on Connor.  The amount of guilt I've carried these past couple of years is indescribable.
- We don't have to move.
- I can continue to derp around at the job I love (that gives me tons of barn time!) instead of pushing myself and taking a high-pressure/higher-paying job in the city that I had been interviewing for.

So happy!

Picture of what happens during fireworks season, just because.
