Our household is abuzz these last few days – buzzing with excitement, that is. It all started when I read an advertisement for a job online. It sounded the perfect job for my husband who is a musician by heart – maintaining a music website. He thought so too and within a few minutes he has sent his application.
Three days ago he was interviewed via Skype and just yesterday he was told he was accepted. To top that, he was given a salary bigger than they previously advertised. I guess they thought he was also the best man for the job 🙂 As of this writing, he has already submitted his resignation and will start working from home in two weeks!
This was a dream that we had, to be able to work from home and have more control of our own time. I can’t believe it’s now turning into a reality. We have vowed that we will take advantage of his new found freedom by focusing more on our health. We will be going out every morning for a daily exercise at the park followed by a leisurely breakfast before he starts his work and before I start homeschooling our eldest. This is what I would call heaven, us doing things together.
One thing that I realized though is our small house is going to be a lot smaller with all of us here all the time. I would really want to search for one of those cool Apartment for Rent in Minneapolis that I saw advertised that would give us more space but since our new house is set to be built by next year I guess it’s more practical to just wait for that. For now, we’re frantically looking for a small space in our house that he can use as his office. His bosses will be in touch with him through Skype and we want to give them the best impression as possible.
