Just Married

Ok,
Time for you to all congratulate me.

My 'Wife' of 3 years tied the knot with me on Friday. So now she is OFFICIALLY my wife.

On Wed. the 13th her and I were lying in bed after i came home from work.
i turned to her and said
You left your job.
My job has just started going through some major changes.
We're running low on our emergency fund.
My car is dying.
Your car is Ill.
My back is acting up.
Our dog needs to see a vet....

Let's get married, it's perfect timing.

When she wouldn't answer i laid there and sang "I'm Henry The 8Th" to her for about an hour before she finally agreed.
We tied the knot on Friday and the Honey Moon was wonderful.

So pat me on the back because i know i have a good one.

Congratulations!!!
Are you gonna post video of the "Hunney Moon"
I'm certain it would go viral immediately.
No really.
I am very Happy for You.
Now you gotta get her to go to the boneyards with you.

Heh, actually there won't be any need to take her to the boneyards.

But I will make sure she gets her hands dirty once we're back on budget to resume the EV.

Her job tarted out on her, she had enough, and after talking it over with me she quit the job. (I'm glad she did)

That same day, I get to work and find out that the contract of the company I work for is canceled - between my company and the last client, i mean. So the company i work for is going under.

The question is - can I find a job to replace the one i have which ends at on Feb 29th?

If I can - and I'm already looking - then we'll be able to recover good enough to resume the EV project after about just 2 or 3 weeks.

If I can't then we'll be going through financial hell very soon.

Like i said - The perfect time to get married.
