That moment, when you dont think your week could get any better..and then it does? It happened!
Wednesday morning, I was at my sisters house, discussing cake pops with a friend whos making them for Gavins birthday party. My phone did the alert for a new email and I clicked on it while talking with her. As soon as I saw the subject, my heart was racing.
I started to fan my face and tears welled in my eyes. I clicked on the email and read, Congratulations. I see his start date of February 19th. I start jumping up and down and screaming..telling her how this is the email we have been waiting for. I couldnt believe it. Tom was at home, sleeping and I wanted to run home and tell him ASAP. I let the kids finish playing and then we headed back home. I put Gavin in his CPD romper and walked into the bedroom. I had my camera on my phone going..Tom rolled over and I said. "Gavin wanted to dress like Daddy today." Tom replied with, "he looks cute" and started talking to G. I said, "Babe. You start February 19th!"..he was still half asleep, but so thrilled.
My husband was offered his dream job. Its still not real. A Chicago Police Officer. What an honor!
I am so proud of him. The hiring process has been stressful and draining for our entire family. Its been month after month of uncertainty in our future. I am relived that we can finally move forward and plan everything out!
That being said, everything will be turned upside down the next few months. He has to reside in the city on the first day of the academy. He will be living with his friend John, who is also in the academy and started a few months ago. That means Ill be a single mother of 2 young boys, while pregnant, for an undecided amount of time. Our current lease is up May 1, but we may try to get out of it a bit earlier so we can live together again. Its going to be tough, especially until I start to feel better. Ill need to start packing, donating and organizing. Tom helps SO much when he is home that itll be a huge change.
Then theres the insurance issue. We are insured on day 1, but Im not sure what the coverage is like or what docs we could use. Im not sure if I should keep my OB who I love and travel into the suburbs for the many appointments and then be an hour away from the hospital. I dread switching pediatricians. One thing at a time, I have to keep reminding myself of that.
But, really. Monday, we saw 2 perfect heartbeats in our twins and Wednesday Tom gets offered his dream job. We are walking around with goofy grins and swelling bellies. :0)
