GOOD NEWS


My postings, and replying to comments, have been sporadic this last week, mainly because I've been going through an interview process.

To make a very long story much shorter, the picture above says it all!

I got the job!

Same industry as before, better salary, better benefits, different responsibilities better suited to me...it's the job I hoped I could find when I started looking.  Ironically, I was laid off one month ago today.  I am truly blessed that I was able to find something so quickly when I know that so many others have trouble finding anything at all.  Luckily in my industry (insurance), there are usually lots of openings, it's just a matter of finding the right fit, or being in the right place at the right time.

It was a nice, albeit stressful at times, mini vacation I had but now, next Thursday as a matter of fact, I will be starting back to work full time.  I'll get some more pictures at the farm this weekend. It will be nice going out there and not worrying about the job situation. I'll get you all sorts of updates.

    1. You know, it has been nice being "free", and it would be great if I didn't have that worry hanging over my head, like you said, ha. But we're working toward that day when we don't HAVE to work stressful jobs and can do what we want to do. Thank you again!!

  16. Best news, and congratulations! I'm sure it was a stressful me month, which I agree is a good amount of time off between jobs, to catch your breath and regroup. What a relief and way to go with the interview and landing the job, your new company is lucky to have you!
