On Friday, after 6 very long years of going to school part time, working full time and helping me raise our 5 kids, my husband finished his Bachelor's degree in Accounting! I am so proud of him! I am so glad he is done lol!
Thursday, was our 11 year anniversary. Using that as an excuse to go out to our favorite Open Mic night jam, ( my husband is a musician for those of you who don't know and plays in a local rock band. That is however not his full time job lol) I threw him a surprise party! It was wonderful and he was truly surprised. We are definitely blessed with a lot of great friends who came out to celebrate with us!
Although he is now done with school he will be putting off looking for a new job for a few months. He does have a really good job right now but he works alot of really crappy hours and never has weekends off unless he takes vacation days. We have decided it would be best if he waits until May to start looking as this is when Kid # 2 graduates high school and also when the payment for child support will stop. Financially, switching jobs could mean a pay cut for us. We plan to spend the first part of 2012 preparing for that. I will be posting soon about my 2012 goals and where we stand with our debt pay off :)
My husband is living proof that anyone can go back to school! He did not even start going until he was 40 year old. He stuck with it this whole time and I am so proud of him!
Hope everyone has a great week! Hard to believe Christmas is only a week away!
