After a four and a half year hiatus, my wife got her job back with the good old Umbrella Corporation and will be coming back to work here in Raccoon City again! Yeah!
I am stoked beyond all repair. Even though she is doing a pretty good thing with her online scrapbooking stuff, it will be great to have that extra paycheck coming in every two weeks. And I'll get to drop that $300.00 a month I was paying to keep her on my insurance.
And even more than just the money, it was something that she really wanted to do and it was making her sad and angry when things weren't happening. But she worked her butt off and got it done and was very very happy when she passed the physical and they said she could come back.
I was so happy I could have toted her off and married her all over again.
Anyway, that's my great news for the day. She gets to come back next week for "job shadowing" which is supposed to show the new hires what working in a prison is all about. But she already knows all of that so i guess she'll just be hanging out getting reacquainted with old friends.
The week after that she starts the Academy again. Since it's been over a year she has to go through all six (?) weeks of that all over again. Most of those classes are going to be exactly the same as they were the first time, nine years ago. Wheee...
I don't envy her that.
But hey! My baby's back at work! Whoo hoo!
On a lighter note (grin), Saturday is going to be National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day, World Tuberculosis Day and the National Day of Unplugging.
What?!? Unplug what? I don't think so....
