So, my husband has been thinking for awhile that he might like to get a new job or career. He has worked for his brother for the last like 14 years or close to it. He likes it, he just knows he won't be moving up any farther than he has already, Shop Foreman. He has been thinking about becoming an electrician for a little while now. One of his friends is an electrician and just got back from a job he finished up in Missouri. He and Kelley talked about if Kelley would be interested in traveling for work. There is a job coming up after the first of the year in Louisiana. Kelley, my husband, said he wouldn't rule it out, but he would have to think about it and talk to me of course. From what it sounds like at the moment it would be like an $8/hr raise plus overtime and per diem. He will find out more info this week; how long, hours, etc.
I can't say I am all for it, but it would be nice to get caught up on stuff and pay other off. He is worried that our 20 month old would forget him. I don't think he would, I'm thinking it would be for 3-4 months. I told him we'd have to add picture messaging to our cell plan. I know he is ready for a change, and I do believe we'd be fine if he did this. When I was little and until I was about 17, my dad traveled alot for work, so I am used to it in a way. But we have been married for almost 13 years, working same hours practically, and always spend time together. So it would be a change. I told him my mom raised my sister and I while dad was away at work. This didn't help him too much since he knows my parents divorced some due to the traveling and trust issues. I told him that I believe we have a stronger marriage than my parents did to begin with, so I am not worried about , esp. since we trust each other.
Sorry so long, just had to get it out. I'll update on it as I find out more.
