your hubby/SO do? Where do they work?

DH is a correctional officer at a federal prison. Obviously not what he wants to do for the rest of his life, but the pay is really good and we have good benefits. He is working on his Master's degree, hoping to become a sport's agent; for now he is scouting for college football until he gets his degree.

I am glad to hear you guys are in a good position now. I cannot imagine going through that. I guess we would do the same, work super hard to get back on track, but it has to be hard, especially with a baby.

Cool, Did he have to go to college for a long time?

My hubby is an IT paralegal. He works at a firm called Lanier Ford.


No, he just has his associate degree. He's been doing what he currently does for about a year now. Before he did things like social security, divorces, and etc. I think he really loves what he does now. He was kinda stuck in a rut with his last employer (he had been there for years and they just would not compensate what he deserved) which is why about this time last year he decided to send out his resume which landed him the position he is in now. I'm so proud of him because back in November 2002 he was laid off of a job and it gave him the opportunity to go back to school. Back then the lay off was so devastating to us because Brad had just been born in March, but we stuck it out and we are now so much more better off.

It was definitely tough. Especially on dh because he felt so bad about it. When he hired on there they had pretty much guaranteed that there would be work for a while and then the lay off happened about a year and a half into the job. I think that is why they compensated everyone so well. He considered going into the army after it, but that was a huge decision that I just wasn't comfortable with. Our best friend (who worked there and got laid off too) did join up and it really took a toll on him in the end.
