Mr. Universe got a job offer!!!!

That’s right folks, we won’t be jobless and homeless and starving in a month. Yay! He will be teaching at a middle school not too far from where we will be living, so it’s a nice commute. He will only be teaching band (no guitar, strings, choir, general music, or music appreciation!!). There are some really good numbers to the bands already, so he’s pretty excited. Oh, and the best part (besides that he is employed, of course!!) is because it’s middle school, he will not have marching band. Because we are moving and I’m having the baby, I will not have marching band. This will be wierd!! No Friday nights taken up. We actually have every Saturday in October free. No marching band camp. No extra rehearsals after school. No pep band (no basketball band, either!!). I will actually SEE my husband. I won’t be the band widow. It’s gonna be so wierd!! I think we’ll both miss marching band, but it will be nice to take a year off. Then next year, we’re both hoping to get on with some high schools in the area, and it’ll be back to no family life each fall.

Okay, I wrote more than I was going to, but I knew that everyone has been praying for us and thinking of us and worrying for us. Thank you all for the support and prayers! We are very happy right now. Yay!!
