DH is employed!!!!!!
It’s official! After 3 years, 10 months, and 1 day, DH is employed!!! The background check finally was completed and he got the email from HR with his official April 29th start date!
Thanks so much for all of your support over the last few years and everyone’s positive notes and thoughts.
DH was laid off from a huge bank, where he headed the fraud division and reported to the CIO. His new title is Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and he reports to the CEO, which is a huge job. It’s a Netherlands owned financial services company that’s about $5B in global revenues. The salary is half of what he used to make, but still plenty! If we budget carefully and save now, it’s even enough that I could be a SAHM in the future. (currently I have a lucrative management job in insurance)
We told BM1 and BM2 who were both thrilled. They’ve both been supportive and flexible during all of this which has helped . BM2 sent me a really nice text about how happy she is and how thankful she is I was so supportive through all this with DH and the kids, and mentioning how proud she is at how well we all coparent considering where we al started.
I feel like I lost 100lbs since this morning. My head and back hurts less. I just feel light and free! It’s going to be ok! I just wanted to share the news
