Happiness all around

Do you suppose that I am the only one who straightens and faces a store's display when I'm stuck in line behind someone at the register who is taking forever??

I've noticed that when I'm distracted by something, I can be as patient a sleeping baby

When I'm not...well, let's just say that I'm not the most patient person in the world

Normally I have Hubby to distract me, but we were in a hurry and so he stayed in the car

I noticed myself getting impatient so I started looking around, trying to distract myself

And then my hand just automatically gravitated towards their display of hand soap that was right next to me 

I didn't get to finish because they finished shortly after I started, which annoyed me, but at least it looked better than it did when I started

They should have paid me

We have some exciting news in the Muckleroy house

They told Hubby they were getting rid of his shift the beginning of June

Mostly both of the companies are making pretty dumb decisions (in my opinion) and instead of hiring and training more people, they are just getting rid of his shift all together

So the branch in Florida will be the only night shift...lucky them, they're going to have a huge work load

So last week...on Tuesday, I think, he was told that he would be starting his new shift the very next week!!

He got to change 1 weeksish early!!

And then he emailed them back, telling his boss that the typical 1st shift schedule (5:30-2:00) wouldn't work for us because we only have one car and I would have no way to get to work

The response he got?

No problem, work 8:30-5:00

Saweet!!

That means we pretty much have the same schedule, I just start at 8:00 instead

SOOO nice

He asked (well, really told) them if he could have Monday off so he could have one more day to adjust to the change in schedule

They were understanding about it and obviously said yes, but the awesome thing about that is he got paid holiday because of Memorial Day

So he won't have to use his sick days, and his paycheck won't take a hit

I'm a big fan of that

We also just bought a new fridge

Which we are BOTH a big fan of

I'll post a picture of it..next time

It's a nice fridge

We're not sure what to do with all of the room we suddenly have

It's like going from a one bedroom apartment with 8 kids to a 6 bedroom house with 2 kids

Pretty much epicly amazing

So, life is good

We have a new fridge, Hubby has a new schedule...the only thing I can ask for is a day off

Which will be coming soon, I hope

Now if anyone wants to send us some care packages so we can fill our fridge, we would totally let you

And our fridge would love you forever

Hubby and I are going to go to bed now

Together

For the third night in a row!!

Just awesome

I'm glad to hear so many great things are happening for you both :)
Congrats on the much better work arrangement for hubby and of course the new fridge. Weve had a fridge with no handle for over 6 months now because my landlord isn't the greatest.

That's a lot of good news. Congrats on the work schedule situation, new fridge, going to bed together, and a good start with redesigning the soap display. They're probably waiting for you to come back to finish the job.

I'm sending a Jell-o snack pack of pudding to put in your fridge for when I come over for dinner parties and charades.

A new schedule and a new fridge all in the same week. That is just too exciting for words.
