Fantastic News to Share

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Today at 12:30, I received some of the best news that I have heard in a great long while. My Stepdad received a job offer in Minnesota. He's coming home.

I haven't openly discussed the situation in great detail, but my Stepdad has been working out of state. Ever since August 6th, 2006 Dusty has "visited" or "vacationed" at home for no more than 10 days at a time. His home instead has been an RV and he has worked 12-14 hour days for months in California, Texas, Georgia, Alabama and currently Ohio overseeing refinery turnarounds. The longest job was 6 months, and unfortunately it was getting worse in the way that they jerked him around and backed out on contracts.

You can just imagine what a strain this has been on my parent's marriage. My Mom has run the full gamut of responses in the past 4 years, but most recently was reaching exhaustion. Dusty's been trying to return to Minnesota with a stable job for over a year now, but unfortunately his 35 years of job experience do not equal a Bachelor's degree. There were several opportunities that seemed promising until a candidate arrived touting a degree.

It doesn't matter anymore though!

He's coming home!
