The Wife got some news today that will change our lives forever. As many of you know, she was another victim of the economy. The new job search began in earnest just a few weeks ago. We were prepared for anything. Years ago, I made her a promise that regardless of my situation, if her career brought us a change, then I would do whatever was necessary to make sure she could pursue it fully.

When the possibility of this new job popped up, it seemed too good to be true. They still hadn't discussed compensation or title, but I told her to be prepared to accept a salary similar to what she is making now. By my way of thinking, as long as it was at least the same, I'd be willing to leave my current job to let her follow her dream.

I'm not going to spoil her surprise. I imagine she's crafting a post right now. My only question is if I have to salute her now.

This is just unbelievable.
