I can't help but think of that song as I type this post.
As many of you know Steve owns his own business.
He also has had a second job for 2 years now as a newspaper delivery boy.
The newspaper job really came to us in October 2007 when our last entrepreneurial adventure had begun. We needed the money and the time frame of the job fit our family.
Well, it fit as much as a 3am job can fit a family.
Steve has been faithfully getting up each morning at 3am for the past 2 years, 7 days a week, delivering 3 different newspapers to over 300 homes, then returning safely home shortly before we all wake up to start our day.
The newspaper business is a failing business, with online news it only makes sense.
It is also a high demand business. Ha! I know, but it is. The paper expects NO misses, well I think they allow Steve 1 paper mistake a week.
So this morning after some crazy events it looks like Steve will be receiving his 2 week notice.
This is fine with us, and when I say fine I actually mean fine, OK, we are at peace.
We have held this job with an open hand, trusting that God brought it to us and that He would/will take it away when the time is right.
Of the two weeks Steve has left he has already bartered for a sub to deliver one of those weeks and of course we actually have to wait until Monday to see if he actually gets his "termination" notice.
He is relieved,
ready for normal sleep patterns.
We will still get to benefit from Christmas tips !$!$
And we fully know things will go on just fine, we may need to tighten the belt a little more and I have some business plans in the works,
*update, Steve got handed his 2 week notice when he walked into work today, Friday Dec 11th, so he actually has 2 weeks from Monday, with 1 week of paid vacation--excited for the future!!
