Celebrate

As usual I've had about forty-three PYHO posts half written in my brain for this week. Sharing my frustration, disorganization, confusion among other things. But something happened.

These last six weeks have been a roller coaster of epic proportions. We were struck by lightning and experienced a thunderstorm of emotions. How could it happen again? Hadn't we already been through enough? I didn't expect life to be a walk in the park but it felt like we were getting sucker punched by life at every single turn. I was anxious, losing sleep and freaking the hell out. I started trying to figure out how I could work a second job, spent hours calculating our expenses down to the penny, tried to figure out how we could cut our already bare bones budget. 

I formulated what if plans in my head. I tried desperately to support Big Yankee-to reassure him that this was yet another bump in the road. That someday we would recover from this too. That we'd be able to look back and be thankful one door closed because another was open. Maybe if I said it enough I would believe it myself.

Last week, while I was out of state for a work conference he had an interview. And a second interview. And a third. Today he got a job offer. I am breathing a sigh of relief and gulping down some celebratory wine.

I don't comment a lot, but I read your blog every day. I was so sad for you when I heard what had happened. But now I am breathing a sign of relief for you too. And will toast you with my own glass of wine. I hope you get some smooth sailing from here out.

Congratulations to Big Yankee on the job offer! The hurdles that life puts in our way sometimes seem insurmountable, but often they are not. God bless you all.

Thank you very much. We've been through so much already and I wondered if we would ever get back on our feet again.
