Stand By For An Exciting Announcement...

Who is now a civilian government employee?

THIS GUY!!!!


That's right folks! My husband, who has been a government contractor with very little job security and mediocre benefits for years, who has been working toward securing a permanent government position for over a decade now, finally reached his goal!

This means big things, not the least of which is that Jeremy's job is finally a career. He has job security, great benefits, awesome opportunity for advancement, and can pretty much work anywhere in the world where there is a U.S. government or military installation.

Jeremy wanted to wait until he is sworn in on the 28th before we announced it, but he got a phone call today saying that he passed his drug screening and it is official, so he let me tell the big secret today. YAY!!!!

Can I tell you how proud I am of this guy?
