Omg Omg Omg I'm freaking out here! *UPDATE in red*

So about 3 or so months ago my husband was contacted by Honeywell for a possible position in DC or Hawaii. He talked to the guys on the phone, and when they didn't call him back he called them a couple weeks later. They then said that they filled the position in Hawaii, and they had a more qualified candidate for the job in DC. No big deal, really. The job would have been a nice improvement in lifestyle for us, but we would be fine. Since then he decided NOT re-enlist, another plan we had. So we've accepted the fact that for the next few years we would be both working part time, attending school and he would continue in the Air Reserves.

Well he just called me to say that Honeywell has called him AGAIN and offered a job in Connecticut, or Rhode Island if he preferred.  I'm freaking out because...well I don't know why. I'm just in shock. He told them he would like to finish out the semester, unless the pay was substantial enough.  I can't believe it. This would be an AMAZING opportunity for him, as he wants to be an electrical engineer.  I'm so so so glad he didn't re-enlist!

***Got a text as I'm writing this, does anyone live in or near Newport, RI? How is it?***

 

 

********* 10/29-He got a formal offer yesterday for a position as an Associate Engineer. We're moving to New London, CT! I'm excited, and scared and nervous all at the same time.************

Congratulations! But if you move, what about your schooling? Maybe you could transfer. That's great!
