Happy Sunday, all. It has been a busy week. Why is it that time never goes by as fast as it does when you are on staycation? I think I’m going to start writing in a daily journal because these past couple days are a complete blur.
So, not sure if you were around when I posted here . Just jump straight to paragraph 4. Well, drumroll please…..I…GOT…THE…JOB!
At the risk of sounding arrogant, I knew I had it all along. Let me explain. I’m a woman of faith. There have been times in my life when opportunities have just been dropped into my lap without me trying. I recognize them and act accordingly. That, to me, is indication that it is God’s will for my life. It’s like a big broom is sweeping over me and placing me somewhere else. Weird visual, I know.
Are you still with me? Lol! I know not everyone is a believer, but I am, and it’s my blog, so..
Ok, seriously. Here’s what happened. I NEVER go on linked in. I should, but I don’t . One morning I thought I’d saunter over there to justify actually having created a profile a gazillion years ago.
Wouldn’t you know it, that exact morning, I received an email from a former colleague. We hadn’t worked together long, but I took a shine to him because he reminded me of my son. My heart automatically goes into mom mode when I see a bearded young man.
Aaaaaanyway…..he wrote to tell me that his company was looking for experienced people and he thought of me. Would I be interested? I did the typical “I don’t think you can afford me”. No arrogance was intended here. It’s just that I’ve been at my current place of employment for 11 years. It adds up, right?
He reassured me that salary was not a problem and invited me to check it out. The rest, as they say, is history.
Thursday I had to print out my signed letter of acceptance and send it back to my new employer. I have no printer and so I had to stop in at the office at my current job to do that. That’s when it hit me. Wow. I’m probably never going to see most of these people again. Even though I was going batshit crazy with boredom, there’s a certain comfort level with what is familiar.
I got out of there. Fast – before I changed my mind!
I haven’t told my boss yet. There are still six days of vacation that I have to use up. If I don’t take them, they will be paid out and the government will eat away at it by way of taxation. Oh hell no. That being said, I emailed my boss on Thursday, asking if I can extend my vacation. He’s away until tomorrow, so I have not heard back yet. I’m planning on handing in my letter of resignation either Friday or the following Monday.
Wish me luck!
P.S. I have other news to share, but will keep that until tomorrow. I’m worried about something. It involves my beloved prodigal. I’m hoping it’s just me being an over protective, worry wart of a mom. This is one time I hope I’m wrong. Stay tuned.
