JD didn't end up putting out the money for training. We both ended up feeling uncomfortable with going into debt for a job that we weren't even sure he would get much flying out of. The work could be good or it could be sparse. Not knowing for sure made it hard to commit to our previous decsion to do the training.
JD now has a job offer for a charter company. He is going to do an interview with them and go from there. The biggest down side is that there are no health benefits and I need the coverage. So I will be applying for a part time job that has benefits. I would rather not work, but if I have to work I would rather it be part time than full. With this new job JD would be making enough that I only need to work part time, praise God.
So here we are on the cusp of another chapter in our life and careers. I will update you again once things are finalized. I am just happy he finally has a job offer that is in the states and pays well enough.
