Daddy's Home!

Ronnie got home just as we sat down to dinner last night. I was expecting him, but Paige had to idea. She was so excited to see her Daddy. She was glued to him all evening.

He's home until noon on Sunday, when he has to leave to go 4 hours away. We had been counting on him being able to come home every weekend. Now we aren't sure. He'll find out Monday. Technically the operation at the hospital is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. He may work any kind of schedule. I'm still hoping he'll be able to come home on weekends.

We did get some definite good news. Although he has to drive an hour each way to work, he will work Monday through Friday, 9 to 5. That's really good! He won't have to work weekends or holidays. They have a crew for that. Another change is that he won't be working in the cafeteria, but on the patient trays. That involves lots of nutrition training for him this next 3 weeks. There have been some really good jobs over the past few years that he hasn't gotten because he needed more nutrition experience than he had. This could lead to better things later on.

How awesome for him. I know this interim sucks but what a blessing to have such positive things happening on the job front when so many people are fearful of the future. And how fun for Paige to get a nice surprise like that this week especially. I can't wait until Asher gets to that age where Daddy is the one he clings to (at least sometimes), Mommy's getting a litte tired and in need of a little alone time.

I must have missed this! I didn't know he had a new job. How exciting in one way and a bummer that he has to be so far away.

I'm so glad he'll have a "normal" schedule! It's hard when Daddy's gone though; I hope his training goes quickly for you all.
