Mission Accomplished.

It all started with an email. 

The hubs got an email in November from Human Resources at HFD. They asked if he could resubmit his information to them. We thought that the hire list that he got on had expired, so this was a HUGE break. So hubs went off to HFD Headquarters the very next day with his papers. A couple of weeks later, he gets another email with a date to come in for an interview. 

We both ended up taking the day off from our jobs that day, both on pins and needles since this was the furthest he'd ever gotten in the hiring process. We got to headquarters SUPER early. I dropped him off and then went to a nearby Jamba Juice to wait it out.
About 20 minutes after I sat down to read The Hunger Games, he called and said the interview was done. He wasn't sure what to think, but they did tell him that nobody would hear anything until mid January--which was at least another month away.

The holidays came and went, which kept our minds off of the whole waiting game. Mid January came and went and still no word.

Then in early February, while I was at work, I got a text message from the hubs: "Call me when you get this." I ran to the break room and called him. He answered and said he got the official call. 

So after almost 8 years of test taking, traveling back and forth from FL to Hawaii and back again, and waiting and waiting... the hubs has finally been hired by the City and County of Honolulu Fire Department! He officially starts training on April 23. We feel so blessed. The congrats have been pouring in and everyone is so excited!
Especially The Moosh.
