This Happy Day

Fellow bloggers, I invite you to say hello to the brand new Octavia the swimming instructor!

That's right!  I got the job!  I was basically grinning this whole afternoon.  This is a wonderful position and everyone seemed so friendly while I was there, and I feel so lucky to be getting this job, but you know what else I'm excited about?

  • I won't have to worry about rent.  
  • Cullen and I won't have to stress out about internet and electricity bills.
  • I can apply for foodstamps so we can get more than $160 a month.
  • We can spend money on healthier food and more produce even though it's more expensive
  • When we run out of food money, we won't have to eat macaroni or breakfast food for the rest of the month.
  • If I want some inexpensive article of clothing or if Cullen needs something, we can buy it.
  • I will finally be opening my own bank account and hopefully be completely independent of my mother.
  • (I can get thai food and qdoba burritos more often!)
  • And many, many more perks of having an income that I'll probably think of when I try to fall asleep tonight.

I'm so excited about this!  My final interview (with the manager) was today and I start training at some point this week.

It's been a pretty happy day.
