Woot! Woot! Cha Cha Cha

The waiting is over.

The wondering is over.

Ahhhhhh...... Big sigh of relief....

Brilliant, wonderful, kick ass Papa Echo found a great job as a management consultant for an Australian company. His first project will be in Canada and will last for about a year. They will fly him home on the weekends.

While it will be a HUGE adjustment to not have him here all the time, there are many great benefits that I am choosing to focus on...

  1. A paycheck!!!
  2. The company will fly him not only home, but anywhere that has a lesser than or equal to airfare. Therefore... wherever the kids and I go, he will just fly there. Let's say, for example, I had a friend that the kids and I went to visit. He would fly there and then back to work. It would work really well, if I had someone to stay with... hint, hint, hint.
  3. The kids are excited to get passports because of course we have to go visit him in Canada this summer.
  4. Did I mention, I'm excited about the paycheck?
I did have to change things around with my new job. I will no longer be working full time at the nursing home. I will be a "relief worker" which means that just before the schedule comes out, I can call and fill in whatever shifts are left. I'm not sure how much I will be able to fill in, but it's nice to have that option still out there.

Way to go Papa Echo!!!

Can I hear a Woot! Woot!

Congratulations!! Good luck with your solo parenting, I know you'll do a great job. And that's wonderful that you don't have to flat out quit your job.

Also, I hear Maryland is nice. And has many airports nearby.

P.S. Australia too? How awesome if you had to use those passports to go visit the corporate office!
