"The secret for success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes." Benjamin Disraeli
On December 1st my husband started a new adventure. He COMPLETELY changed career paths. It was a scary and exciting time for both of us.
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may already know my husband is an optician (he dispenses contact lenses and glasses). He has worked for a few optical companies since getting his license (you have to be licensed in NYS) and had worked for 8yrs at his last location.
So instead of being an optician, he is now a Jr. Developer for a company out of Tennessee. Yep, couldn't be any more different than being an optician. Over the last 8 months, there were lots of late nights and weekends, his friend (who works for the same company) taught my husband computer coding. I could not be more proud of my husband & grateful to his best friend since childhood for teaching him. Jeff worked really hard and he picked it up quickly. Because the company is out of Tennessee, Jeff gets to telecommute every day. It has been an adjustment on all of us having him home every day. This job has been such a blessing, I have not seen Jeff this happy in a while. He is beaming every day when he goes to work...in the basement. :D
Here's to a New Year and new adventures!
