Aaron's New Job!!!!!!


Praise the Lord, Aaron has joined the land of the working. And to make things better, he loves his job. He is the Marketing Manager/Business Recruiter for the Corvallis Benton Chamber Coalition. What a mouth full. I am not 100% sure exactly what his job is but I know he is now a budding politician jumping head first into the local political frenzy. I never knew Aaron was that kind of guy but hey, there are probably a lot of things I an yet to learn about him. Seems like we are constantly learning new things about each other. Just today he learned that one of my favorite foods are chili cheese dogs. I did not say I eat them anymore but they are one of my favorite things. Too much baby fat still to lose. Back to the job. It is a full time position, great benefits and he gets to golf on the company dollar. What could be better? Oh yeah, he gets to talk to people all day long, eat great food at all his business lunches and we get to go to fancy dinner events that we otherwise could not or would not afford. If you want to know more about it you will have to ask him. You can find out a little bit more about the chamber on their web site. Who knows where his political aspirations will lead? I love my hubby and am so proud of him for his determination and trust in God through his 2 years of unemployment.
So, you might ask, how am I adjusting? I thought about asking Aaron to quit his job after the first week. Just kidding. It was a very hard week though. The kids are really missing daddy and so is mommy. He has been my helper since Lucy was born and I never realized how much I depended on him in everyday things. I will survive. Lots of people do but it makes me feel special that I got to have him home with me for 2 years.

Atta girl! I love your positive spin. Such a radical change for your family. But so much good will come from it! Every day we praise God for this wonderful answer to our many prayers. People from our church & my Bible study are still praising God for this answer!

i love chili cheese dogs too!!! anyways, about aaron's job i am still so happy for you guys. when i heard he was hired and it was a job that he really wanted i was reminded of Matthew 7:9-11

Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

God is good and it's so cool to see how he has provided for your family.

The mention of chili cheese dogs got my mouth watering, too. We are kindred spirits of diet, sister! Yet, the anguish of wearing those "baby pounds" longer than I need to keeps my self restraint in place. Blast!

Excellent!!!

Praise God. In this economy, to have landed a job like that is just great.

As for political ambitions ... can you say Mayor of Adair Village??? Huh? Huh? What do you think?

As for chilli cheese dogs, I'm sure mom remembers. It was one of my regular after-school 'snacks.' Bun. Hot dog. Can of chili. Shredded cheddar. Microwave.

I am getting hungry for one as we speak. Come on Janine, just be normal. I know you want one. Yummy, Yummy, farty tummy.

Jon, Aaron almost ran for Mayor for Mayor of Adair. He probably would have if it was not for me saying he needed a job first. He would love to be in a position like that someday. Who knows where this will lead him.
