So Close to Freedom! (Update Post)

So remember my post from a few weeks ago when I was fussing about my husband working from home ever since covid? And it was making me crazy? The link is here if you wanted a refresher…

Well… The update is that his work is making him go back to his physical office starting next week! And they dropped his raise from 20% to 10% due to all the inconvenience he caused.

Holy cow, I am so relieved! I don’t know how much longer I could survive being trapped in the house non-stop with him. To have a break everyday is exactly what I needed. Woohoo!

Now… I just need to wait-out getting the college kid out of the house too. He’s been home ever since covid bc his classes were all online this year. But starting August, he *should be* back on campus full-time instead! I cannot wait!

And my 10yr old daughter has been in school in-person this whole time anyway so she’s been out of house more than all the rest of us combined!

I have a light at the end of my tunnel now. I’m so happy! 🙂

FYI – my husband should’ve taken the 20% raise right off the bat. I hope he’s learned his lesson.

  1. Yay!!!! Also, I’m shook that you have a college-aged son lol you do not look anywhere near what mom of a college-age son might look like Lol

  2. I envy you. I write this comment as my wife stands nearby with her phone meeting on speaker yet she complains that I have TV or music on all day for background noise. Of course she is paid for her work and I am not at this point so I can’t complain

  3. Okay, I’m super duper late to the comment party because your comments weren’t showing up at all on the reader. There was no option to comment. But then I discovered the ability to comment once I clicked on your name! Some blogs allow this and others don’t – WP is a funny thing 😛

    1. Hi Hilary! No worries! When I transferred my blog from WordPress .com to .org, that’s when the issue with comments not showing up in Reader started. I’ve been aware of it and I’ve trouble-shooted for everything and reported to Support and nothing fixes it! It annoys me, and I apologize for any inconvenience it’s caused you. 🙁
