  • 3rd shift at walmart, lol. It pays the bills. He was going to go into the Air Force, but they dropped him from the DEP program because of some new rules about tattoos (he has one on his arm, wasn't a problem when he went to enlist, but they ended up changing their minds). He used to be a manager of a Dominos, but he quit to pursue the AF thing, so right now he's just working what he can until he figures out what he really wants to do. He hasn't been doing it that long (a year), and they keep telling him they want him to move up, especially with his management experience, so maybe it'll be worth him sticking it out... But he's exploring his other options at the same time.

    I'm waiting until we don't have young children in the house - then I want to finish my degree and go into social work. :)
