Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

curve ball

freaking out over finances in the wee early hours a month ago I applied for a full time job at a prestigious university in the area. Can we guess where this is?

I have been trying to become a Buckeye since I started working at CPS, so for 6 years I have been applying for jobs and nothing ever happens and I thought this would follow suit.

The reason for the freak out, this new job isn't working out. The pay isn't great, the hours kind of bite and all of that I can deal with but the physical exhaustion is simply to much. I work a day and I am off my feet for 3, last weekend was the worst so far and husband actually told me to quit. I had to have him bring me my real tennis shoes not the work ones and I could barely walk myself out to his car, when I got there I was a blubbering mess because I was in so much pain.

Classes have finally started to pick up and I was feeling less guilty about leaving my job, thing were looking up. 

Then husband had a "talk" with me.

The talk went something like this:

Husband:We are getting by but barely

Me: feeling guilty

Husband:You need to find steadier work

Me: feeling more guilty

Husband: until then you need you ask your mom for more money

Me: dying a little more inside


I get a text from bestie and  she informed me that I made the short list. The short list for the job that on a whim I applied for, the full time job that on a whim I applied for.

I. was/am. nervous.ecstatic.praying. every. other. second. to.get. this. job.  I think the periods after every word really get the point across.

This opportunity would be amazing for me not only for helping us financially but I would be in at a university that has a medical center that if I stayed there I could transfer to after I graduated from school. AND not to mention I could continue my education for FREE.


The problem....

its full time and I would have to completely change my school schedule and be a quarter more behind than I already am.

I talked it over with husband and he always tells me in the end it is up to me and I think I know what I am going to do.

If I get called in for an interview and get offered the job, I am going to take it. It took me 6 years to get in to OSU and I am not going to pass up the opportunity.

I looked in to it and all the classes I am taking right now are offered in the evening and on weekends, so I am covered there, the only issue will arise when I start the actual surgical tech program but that could be another 2 years before that happens.

This comes at such a hopeful time because husband has a second interview with a company in a couple of weeks.

Please ladies, throw a prayer or some good jewjew our way.
