My husband starts his new job tomorrow. It will be the first time since I have known him that he has a 9-5 job. He's pretty much been an independent contractor this whole time. While that didn't bring us steady income from him all the time, the flexibility it provided was awful nice. I almost kind of wonder if he isn't taking such a structured position to prove a point? Nah. He's not manipulative that way. I guess I know deep down he is doing this - with his own reservations - because he feels like it is the best option for him right now.
I feel like we are poised at the start of something. Of what? How it will all work out I am not sure. Life at my house has not been "easy street" but I have to say that I got really used to all the help he was pitching in over the last four months. Sure, he has always helped some (except for the first year after S was born and he basically checked out) but he's been simply a working-mother's dream these past few months.
