…because I’m SO happy. This is a GOOD emotional post. I honestly can’t contain all my excitement. I had to share the amazing news with you all.
My amazing, hard-driven Fiance found out today that he was accepted into the plumbers and pipefitters union!!! This was his second year of trying and he got a letter in June saying he was on the waiting list. He would only be accepted if a spot open. He figured he had no shot in hell and was going to try again next year.
We just spent $500 of our wedding money to sign him up for a CNA class so he could find a job doing something. He has been laid off since January (literally laid off right after he proposed). We’ve been struggling to make ends meet. August 4th is when I was offered a FT position at the hospital I’m at. Now this?! God, I am in shock still!! He just went to the school to ask if he can get somewhat of a refund since class just started this Monday. -crossing my fingers-
We’ve been going through so much more than I’ve posted on here. It’s been a real stuggle, but I can say for once (as of lately), that something or someone is looking down on us!
Okay. Now I can breathe and try to take a nap before my shift starts tonight.

That’s such a relief! Don’t forget that things come in threes, so besides your full time job, and his getting into the union, there is more good stuff headed your way!

Congrats! It can be depressing and heartwrenching to be out of work. And getting into a union is fantastic for him! Better pay guaranteed!
