It's like when Pinocchio became a real boy

I'm reading: It's like when Pinocchio became a real boyTweet this!

Finally, after years of hoping and trying and waiting, DH has a "real" job. Starting today he's a full-time, permanent* employee at the place he's been contracting. He now gets paid holidays, vacation days, insurance benefits, and a couple of commuter-free work at home days. We're all breathing a deep sigh of relief and doing our happy dance (click; it's cute and will make you happy, too).

I'm off to celebrate with a trip to the ENT! Later this week, I'm off to the dentist and then I'm scheduling an afternoon with the dermatologist, cause I know how to party it up like nobody's business.

*Discussion for another day: what does it even mean to be a permanent employee in today's job market?

Congrats1 Be sure to use those insurance benefis to the ma. Too many people don't appreciate their insurance benefits until they don't have insurance any more.
