DH got the job he wanted!! He is already working the job as a volunteer, but as of last Wednesday he was offered the job paid full-time. He will start either January 3rd or the 16th (but they are pushing for the 3rd).
For the past year he was working as a volunteer at the local courthouse - well everyone there loves him & he loves his job. In October his friend found out there would be an opening in the Self Help Resource Center at the court & he started to volunteer in that office part-time. He picked everything up quickly, took a lot of initiative & it all paid off when they offered him the job (over 140 qualified applicants including 2 other people who already work in that office).
The best part is he didn't tell me right away. I found out when I walked in the door from work - he bought me a Coach purse I really wanted & on the front was a note saying "I got the job" I was sooo happy & surprised (more surprised than his proposal).
Thanks everyone for your support this past year - it meant a lot - it certainly wasn't easy starting off our first year of marriage living off of one income & help from our in-laws, but it finally paid off!
