DH back at work

April 23rd, 2007 at 02:34 pm

My DH started a new career as an insurance adjuster about 1 1/2 years ago.
He spent a year in Florida working the cleanup insurance claims left over from Hurricane Wilma. He finally got to come home Dec. 8, 2006. Then he enjoyed four months at home doing honey do's, and working on projects in our home and yard that he had been wanting to do.
We were living off of the money he made last year (Although I work too).
He called his company and told them he was ready to be deployed again and they sent him to New Hampshire over the weekend.
We live in Texas so this was a very long trip for him in his pickup.
He went to work the storms that they have had up there in the past few weekds.
He makes excellent money doing this kind of work, but I sure do miss him when he's gone.
I can't quit my job and go with him because we need the health insurance we get through my job.
While he was in south Florida last year I did get to go and be with him several times and it was like a nice vacation for us together in an exotic place we had never visited before.
So maybe I will get to go and visit in the northeast united states too. I have always wanted to go.
So while it is difficult for both of us bding apart, maybe we will get to do some things we had only dreamed of before.
I am the financial planner in the family and DH just trusts me to do it all.
This forum and website have been immensely helpful to me.
I continue to learn a lot and it keeps me committed.

    My DH has seriously thought about becoming a claims adjuster. He's a little over 50 years old, though, and isn't sure that he isn't too old. I think he'd be great at it, though!

    That's one way to keep a marriage exciting! Also I understand the insurance thing. DH and I are both self-employed and purchase our own. It costs us $550.00 a month and that is with $2500.00 deductibles.
