My daughter’s dad lives near Philly, about 6 hours away from us. As a result, he misses out on a lot of her life. They don’t even get to talk much because it is very hard to keep a three-year-old interested in a phone conversation for more than 30 seconds, haha. We do have a custody/visitation arrangement, but because of the distance, visitation always involves crazy-long car rides for both of us. He drives a newer car so he hasn’t had many issues with the travel, but all my vehicles have been pre-2000, which, coupled with the frequent long-distance travel, has resulted in me now being on my third vehicle in as many years. Frustrating – and expensive!
Anyway, he just called me to tell me that he has a job interview with a company out here. He’s already had a phone interview and is coming out later this week for a second interview. It’s actually a job that is relevant to his degree, too, so he’s excited about possibly getting to do something he studied and loved. And it’s a company I used to work for and really liked, so I know it will be a good job and work environment with awesome people.
I am really excited at the prospect of him moving out here. Not only will it be wonderful for his relationship with our girl, but maybe my poor car will finally have a rest! lol
I’m feeling good about this and just wanted to share 😀 Fingers crossed!
