Itís fine. Iím fine. Everything is fine.

So, DH got a ďpromotionĒ this summer. His promotion turned out to be double the work, double the hours, triple the headaches, and no increase in pay. Long story short, heís been working 80 hours a week since the last week of August.

Heís not getting to see DS. He leaves at 6:30am, 10-15 minutes after DS wakes up, and many nights doesnít get home until after 8pm when DS is in bed. Or if by some miracle he does make it home by 6pm, heís inevitably called back to campus to deal with an issue 30 minutes later. Itís really starting to affect DS.

Then thereís DHís stress levels surrounding being asked to do 3 full time jobs simultaneously. He always wants to do his job to the best of his ability and itís physically impossible for him to do it. Heís called put of class to deal with behavior issues, called off the practice field to deal with kids giving other teachers a hard time, etc etc. Heís constantly stressed that heís letting someone down (his kids, me, DS). Iím seriously concerned for his health.

Long story short, I told him a month ago to start looking for another job.

Today, he was offered and accepted a new job. Honestly, itís the type of job heís always wanted. Iím so happy for him...and relieved.

Now we have to find a house, buy a house, pack our house, and move in 3 weeks.

Nevermind telling our autistic child the home heís lived in since he was 18 months old is no longer going to be his home.

Itís fine. Iím fine. Everything is fine.
