In what has been a stressful week. I didn't get to blog yesterday but we had some good news...hubby took that job he interviewed for. They actually called him a day early for it. They DO know that if his old job recalls him, he'll be going back to that job. This job is for a small contracting company. Hubby will be on salary rather then hourly. He'll be a Project Manager/Engineer for them. It's about $1000 less a month and there are NO bennies at all (no medical, retirement, vacation, etc). We can survive on the salary (combined with my paycheck). But it's going to be tight.
And I'll be losing a bit of my pay if/when I have to pick up medical for us though my job. Hubby was paying like $80 a month fro great medical...I'll be paying $260 a month for so so medical.
But at least we'll be covered.
As to what's up at his old job...still the same. The Union is working on getting recalls done for the union members. It's just a waiting game right now. Hubby talked to his old boss today but I don't know yet what was said. Hubby is at his new job, getting everything set up. Oh and he told them he'd be gone for two weeks for the Hawaii trip. Since the new job has no vacation..it's a good thing his still getting his salary from the old job.
But all the stress has NOT help with my eating. I over did it again last night..this time with popcorn with butter on it. So I was up 4 pounds this morning. I'm so hoping it's from the salty popcorn! Dinner wasn't bad calorie wise. And I did get my 60 mins in the gym done yesterday and today. Tonight I'll do a Xbox work out. I did one on Monday too. I'm trying for 3 Xbox workouts a week.
We love our new phones. I'm still trying to get everything setup on them.
Talked to my daughter, seems my grandson is having some problems. He's not talking to her so grandma will be calling him on Fri to talk to him. Maybe he'll open up to me.
I'm off on Friday..it's a Holiday for me (company wide). I have a Dr appt in the morning for the bug bite (or whatever it is) on my boob. It's almost all gone..but I'll get it checked since I have the appt.
OK...that's about all I have today. Happy Hump Day everyone!!
