Our Future: Part 1.

It's taken a while for me to write this post. I've crafted several versions, which all attempt to convey the same information; information about my future as a young adult, and our future as a couple.

John and I made some big decisions these last few weeks, and we are still in the process of making some big decisions in the coming weeks. As a result, our lifestyle will be changing very soon.

Allow me to give you a little background info that is pertinent to the point of this post (which I'll get to soon, I promise).

John and I met six years ago. He was already at least 12 years into his career as a Union Electrician. I was in college to be an English and journalism teacher. He was established in his career and had a small apartment because he recently returned from a stint working in Boston, Chicago, and the Milwaukee area. I was living in a small house I rented with a few other girls.

Our lives were very different. I was looking for stability and a solid teaching job. He was looking for the next adventure as a traveling commercial construction worker.

We met. We dated. We fell in love. We bought a home. We got hitched. We tried the fostering/adoption thing. And here we are.

We're ready to try something new, and a pretty cool opportunity has crossed our path.

After we were dating for a while, John spent some time about 3 years ago working as an electrical supervisor at a nuclear power facility during their annual month-long outage. He also was certified to teach OSHA classes to other Union electricians as well. He really found something he loved to do; something he was passionate about. Additionally, John realized he could make really, really good money in just a few months (working 7 days a week, 12 hours a day) at a nuclear facility, allowing him to take a few weeks (even a month!) off of work after the job was completed. He could also teach OSHA classes a few times a year to make a little extra money, if needed.

Here's where I interject the whole purpose of this post: John has the opportunity to travel the country and work on nuclear power plant outages again. He wants to do it, and I want him to as well. So he's gonna go for it.

Come back tomorrow for Part 2.

Over and out.
