We were wrong about that, though. The call came on Friday. He's in!
This job is going to change our lives, and that's no joke. First of all, we're done with third shift, probably forever. More importantly, the salary for this job will double our income. DOUBLE.
The possibility of a job like this is the reason we moved down here. I still miss Chicago like hell, but seeing Nate so happy after that phone call made me think that maybe we're in the right place. We'll finally be able to get off the dole, which has been generously administered by Nate's parents since we were married. They have been the most amazing people to take money from... completely unconditional in their giving, never any strings or judgement, only assistance. They are fantastic, for many reasons. We're going to take them out to dinner soon to thank them for everything.
On his new job, Nate would like to add this:
"I really make cake, you can call me Duncan Hines"
Maybe he'll have to change his moniker from Dow Jones to Duncan Hines.
Send him some congratulations, ya'll.
