Michael has a job! He will be adjunct teaching at Utica College for the Fall Semester for two classes. He also has his name in at MVCC and SUNY IT for two other positions so we are hopeful that at least one of them will pick him up to teach as well. Right now he only has classes M,W,F.
So life is interesting as we try to figure out the particulars… Michael will stay with his parents, since he will not be making even as much as he did on unemployment. We also learned the help we are receiving (medical, food, etc) would count renting of our house as income. So we will be a split household when he teaches, although the girls and I might go down every once in a while and stay with him with his parents.
But it feels right. It doesn’t make me feel anxious. It’s a resume builder and with any luck they will pick up him up for the spring semester too. He’ll be looking for full time employment for the fall as they usually start to appear after Thanksgiving time. We laugh that it would be funny since we keep trying thinking we are leaving the North Country if one of the colleges up here ultimately ended up hiring him. 🙂 We will see what is in God’s plan.
So yeah, things will be a little interesting. There are days I’m concerned about being here and taking care of the kids on my own and trying to get anything done. But it’s going to work out.
I added another
page to the site this week outlining all the baby needs that we have. It’s not much but we are making a few changes this time around (explanations on that page) so we do need some things that we haven’t needed before. For all of those asking me what do you need, how can we help, that’s the place to go to.
Thanks for all the prayers, I’ll ask that you continue them as we prepare for being a split household, the baby’s arrival and the future.
With Blessings, Becky
