My baby's got a job!

My Studly Hubby's got a job! Unfortunately, it doesn't pay real money, but it does pay in experience and networking access. He is working for a gaming company as an "Animation Intern" while they are between game productions. If they get the next gig, which they think they will and they think will be soon, they will be hiring animators and actually paying them so hopefully he'll get some access to that and then I can start spending all his money.

Meanwhile, he is going in every day and trying to get used to the terrible commute that is indigenous to the west coast. The place he works at is only 5 miles away yet it is a good hour drive due to heavy traffic. Most of the people there work from 10am - 7pm to try to avoid traffic so he's been also experimenting with later hours, which is totally weird. It's only about an hour and a half later than what we're used to but it's totally throwing my game off (I try to match his hours since my hours are flexible). I'm hungry at weird times, I desperately want to take a nap right after lunch, and I can hardly wait to get out at night and head home. Oh wait, that's my usual pattern.
