DH met today with his contracting agency. I think they're afraid they'll lose him to another agency, so it appears that they'll pay him through January. That's great news--but they want him to take long-term travel assignments after that. He told them he needs to work locally. Maybe I'm stupid, but I just can't see it working for us if he's gone for weeks at a time. I'm not sure I could swing the single-parent routine. Several of my friends are trying it now with their husbands working hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles away. They've shown me how hard it is, DH is not good by himself, and it would really disrupt our current before-school and evening-class routine. Maybe I'll feel differently if no work appears. I hope we don't have to think seriously about that. Sigh.
