Tides are turning!

Ok so in a little over a month's time, DH got a job.. it's a paycheck and he's glad on that front..
Yesterday i had an interview for server position at Olive Garden. It went well, 2nd interview with the GM is Saturday..which i now think is just a formality..but i'm trying HARD to not count my chickens before they're hatched KWIM? But another reason i think things went well, is that i was asked if i'd be available for training that starts monday morning. Hmm.. well i'll have to do a few tricks to arrange school drop offs but yeah.. so 2 days until i find out for sure!
I've also completed a bartender's course and got my certificate. my TIPS training is in 2 weeks. May 14th. If i'm hired on at Olive Garden, i'll see what my schedule is like and if time allows, i'll throw in for a PT gig as a bartender. Though that'll leave me absolutely NO time for art/design.. but it will help me lose weight. ^_^ Last time i was working OOH i got back down to 140lbs! So, i know i can do it..it's just having the right motivation!
DH Also got a call from the biggest Fire Protection company in ME a couple days ago. Wanted to know if he was working, etc. I took the call, told them yes, but when you've been out of work for nearly 2 years you take the first thing that comes up even if it's not your field of choice. The gentleman could understand that pov. ANYWAY, phone conference is friday afternoon, and will proceed from there.
i'll have to put in notice at DSS about our employment soon. i'm waiting until after DH's first check to notify them of his employment.. i'll do the same after my first check to report our income. i'm positive we'll lose benefits ..but really i'm ok with that. if we can survive on our own, then awesome!
So, i think that about sums up the last month of life here..lol!
It FEELS like things are looking up. But i'm not that blindly optimistic. lol.
