Shane has a job! It's a temporary, summer research position at the University. But it's gainful employment! Being unemployed and bored has certainly worn him down in the last few months. We're going out with friends to celebrate tonight at our favorite local Thai restaurant. Yum.
This does not mean, however, that I'm taking us off our budget. I think it's as important as ever, especially since this is only a temporary position. I hope there's another position, or more money for this one, at the end of the summer but I'm going to plan for another long stretch of unemployment. Just in case.
