Well my DH just got a new job. He is very excited but I am still unsure about it, though it is a very reputable and solid company. I like to find a good place and stick with it. He on the other hand is always looking for a place that has higher pay. This one I think is also going to come at a higher cost to the kids, me, and him (later on when he realizes what he missed). I understand where he is coming from, we want to get some bills paid off but still is it worth it? He currently is a beer salesman and does work long days but his new job (start September 27th) will be as a truck driver (did this before delivering beer) and he will be away from home a 2-5 days/nights a week. Pay is based on the loaded mile. That leaves me to take care of everything at our hobby farm plus work full time, all the kid appointments, games, school meetings, and dance performances. I am afraid he is going to miss so much, our son is in the 7th grade and playing tackle football (dont offer it at his school until 7th grade) as a wide receiver. Our daughter is in the 6th grade and this is the last year she will be in the Just For Kix program at her school (only go to 6th there then they move to the High School dance team). This new place is also an hour and twenty minutes away (50 minutes farther than his current job), I guess that isnt to bad when he is GONE the whole time and not driving back and forth. I am having a hard time being excited for him, I will of course support him moving on to this new job. Am I being overly sensitive about this whole thing?
