Whistle While You Work

Oh yes. ERIC GOT THE JOB! Woo hoo! I know some of you are going, "What job?" Well, some backstory. Eric was involuntarily discharged from the Navy on June 15th. So, he was unemployed following that.

Well, the night before, he did a phone interview with AK Steel. The phone interview went VERY well, and the man asked Eric to come in for a face-to-face interview. This was done about a week after we got here to Ohio. Well, since then we've been waiting to hear back from them. Today was the day! They called with an offer and he accepted! We'll get hardcopy of their offer tomorrow in email, but it's a GOOD ONE! Yay!

It's going to suck for Eric since the job is an hour and half from here. But, due to other issues I'm not getting into right now, he's going to half to commute for a while. Anyway, he'll be the Shift Manager for Casting. It's rotating shift work, which sucks. But, they offer medical from DAY ONE! Dental/Vision after 30. We're so flipping excited. We had set a base line on what the lowest we were willing to accept was and they offered well above that. So we're good to go! Yay. He has a few medical appointments there to finalize the hiring process, but that should go well and he should start working soon.

I'm going to miss having him around all the time, but him having something to do is great!
