So, good news! Yesterday morning Steve got a call from South Valley Motorsports, the place he was laid off from, and business has picked up a ton, so he's got his job back! Hooray! We're not really thrilled that he's back to square one doing a job that he hates, but at this point I'll take anything. Also, he's decided (with no prodding from me, I swear!) to go back to school... so he doesn't have to stay at South Valley forever.
The bad news? He has no idea what he wants to study. We've pretty much decided that a generic degree from some (any) university isn't the best option for him. A few things we've discussed: something in the IT field, police academy (scares the poo out of me, but he's all for it), HVAC tech degree, CDL, or any other sort of "trade" degree, i.e. plumbing, electrical (cause really, how many out-of-work plumbers do you know?). So, we'll spend the spring and summer deciding exactly what he wants to study, and then come fall semester we're both going back to school. Yeah, I'm going back, too. Guess our dreams of house (and dog, for that matter) ownership will have to wait awhile longer.
Anyway, we're super excited that he's back to work. In other news, my kitchen is still leaky, I'm seriously counting down the days until I get to see the doctor. Stupid body. But other than that, life is good. :)
P.S.- My gray hairs are starting to show again, which means it's time to color my hair. Any suggestions on what color to go?
