Looking Forward To This Week...
Actually it's over the next few weeks.  The Cowboys work is opening a new location in the next week weeks.  He will be working closer to home again and his hours will change!  Yea.
I can actually quit work by summer but I am thinking I'll keep working because I really like it and I love the extra money which I get to play with!
The biggest thing is his added income and his hours.  We will get off at 6.  Now he works 5-9.  I work usually 9-2 so it is going to be a blessing for us!
