Like, remember the part where I told you our income woes were solved and the hubs had a jobby job? Yeah. Not so much anymore.
Turns out, the new job expected the world of him. They expected to be his world, which, when you have more important things in your life, you just can't do. Even if he lived in some other world where he was willing to make a job his number one priority in life, it would at least be a job that provided some benefit in exchange for such devotion.
This job had meager benefits at best, a horribly sad amount of vacation time, and pay that, while fine for a job, was not enough to justify never seeing his family.
He tried his best to stick it out and still take care of the more important things in life. So, after three weeks, they let him go. Amiably, in a "it's us, not you" kind of way.
But still, it smarts a little.
We are good though. Positive that when you put the important things in life first, life will ultimately be good.
Beans and rice never tasted so good.
