The Wait Game

Last week Hubby applied for a job that pays $6.00 more than he is making now.  It is in Law Enforcement (same field he is working now) and they are hiring a number of people to fill 2 different academies.  He is qualified for the position and I know they will love him.  The stinky part is waiting for the invitation to interview.  Apparently they only have 3 people who process all the applications, and it will take a couple weeks to find out if he will be interviewed.  Hubby assures me that everything will work out fine.  He is confident that he will not only get an interview, but he will also get the job.  I don't want to think about what that extra $6.00 an hour would do for our family.  Because once I start thinking about the possibilities, I will be so depressed if it doesn't work out.  But I can't help it.

An extra $6.00 an hour means that we can actually make ends meet each month.  We won't be struggling to figure out how we are going to pay for groceries or Dr. bills.  We can aggressively get out of debt.  We can think about buying a house.  We can consider having a 3rd baby (I really want to have a boy).  We can build a savings.  We might be able to get a second car.  Sigh.  There is so much we can do with that extra $6.00 an hour!  I really hope we hear from them soon.
