Talking Good news!

First of all, it seems like a lot of us are hitting the jackpot without actually playing the lottery lately! Yay!

Now, my news!...

Dh gets two weeks of vacation every year (next year he will get 3 weeks because he'sbeen there x-number of years) BUT he had a trip already planned with a friend of his (they've been planning for YEARS and finally got the opportunity to go and couldn't pass it up!) SO he used his two weeks of vacay for this week and next week for the trip. THAT was going to suck because then we wouldn't be able to take a family vacation unless he took an RTO (requested time off) which he would not get paid ANYthing for, including unemployment...

Last week dh called and asked if he'd be able to take a voluntary lay-off (he gets unemployment for this) and they denied him becasue of the way the scheduleing worked out...

WELL... dh left his cell phone home bc we do not have an over-seas plan (he went to Israel and Egypt) and work called and left a message. He told me I could check his messages while he's gone but I didn't have to if I didn't want to.

I figured if work is calling it's probably important (that and I'm nosey
 
) so I checked the message and...
HE GOT THE VOLUNTARY!!! Only for this week (so far) but better than nothing... So now he will get a week of unemployment and a week of vacay pay... AND we will be able to take a 9-10 day vacation this summer and he'll still get paid!!! :cloud9:

I can't wait to tell dh tomorrow when I call him!!!

That is wonderful news, family time is so important and being paid while enjoying that time makes it even better!

That is a really nice "bonus" for sure. I hope DH is having a great trip and will be happy with the good news upon his return.

I've called dh a few times now and he was happy with this news! Seems like he's having a good time! They are VERY busy during the day but then have nothing to do at night but sit in the hotel! I can't wait to see the pics he's been taking!
