Sometimes I think that this site is just one big sappy dedication to my husband. I’m sure there are plenty of readers out there—especially my Facebook friends who only see me share love-related links on my anniversary—who scroll past all the Married at 22 posts and think, “you’re in love, we get it.”
And what of it?
Spoiler alert: today’s post is following suit, true to that in-love theme. This post is one big brag, so buckle in or hit eject now.
I Must Gush
There are many reasons I adore Chad, but lately I’ve been in my feels for something brand new. This man, who is already the primary breadwinner of the household (sigh, engineering is more of a monetary endeavor than freelancing and PR combined, sadly), recently got a second job.
Life update alert. Now, on Saturdays and Mondays, Chad is working shifts at our local liquor store, manning the register, stocking the products, and looking cute as hell as he does it.
He’s bumped up from working 40 hours a week to 50 (on average), and I’m so proud of him I could cry. He was already my hard-working husband, and he’s just raised the stakes more for the two of us.
As you likely know, I’ve been side-gigging as a freelance writer since college, hoping to earn any extra cash. Lately, we’ve been saving toward a house. As our financial goals have deadlines looming, we’re looking for any opportunities to earn more income.
Thus, second jobs for all.
All in All
I just want to brag about Chad. He deserves it. I know second-jobs are not uncommon among the millennial crowd (damn this student debt crisis), but I couldn’t be more honored to have such a hard working, loving spouse who would do anything for his family.
I don’t know many engineers with master degrees who would be excited about going to their first job in retail after a long day at the office. That’s just the kind of guy Chad is, and I am so lucky to have him in my corner.
I love ya honey, and I’m so happy we’re in this together.
