New Kid on the Job
Randy officially started working at his new job today! Last Thursday he worked his last 2 hours for Crown Electric, the company he has been with since his first day as an apprentice. He was ready for a change and got an opportunity to go to Robinson, IL and work at the Marathon Oil Refinery, which will be totally different then what he was doing at Crown, instead of commercial stuff it will be industrial stuff. He got a long weekend out of the deal and went in yesterday for orientation and started actually working today. He is going to be working 6 days a week, 10 hours a day through December and then a few weeks of 7 days a week, 12 hour days somewhere in between. It's going to be a lot different, especially since IL. is an hour behind us, which means he'll go into work late AND get home late. It will definitely be an adjustment for us all, but we both feel this is what's best for our family right now and hopefully things will work out and Randy may stay on down there for the long run. Here's to a good first day on the new job!!!
