Alright, folks… here’s the deal.
I’ve been working part time at a place for a while. Twenty hours a week. It’s been extra income and a chance for this mama to get out of the house. It has also been a good opportunity for me to get used to functioning in society again after my cancer treatment. However, once the husband lost his job, it became apparent that twenty hours a week wasn’t going to cut it. We need things like money to pay our mortgage, buy food, and health insurance. It was made known to me that a position was opening up at my place of employment which would be full time, a substantial pay raise, a set schedule and all the fun things that go along with that. I went for it, not really expecting to get it, but figuring that I really love where I work, and if I don’t try for it, then I’ll never know if I could have gotten it.
I interviewed with seven other people, all of whom worked at the place longer than me.
Saturday (yesterday), I was called into the HR office and was offered the position. I didn’t expect it, and I will admit that I teared up a bit because we need this so bad right now. Anyway, all of this is boiling down to the fact that I am starting my new job tomorrow (Monday). I start work at five in the morning, which is going to upend my sleep schedule for a while. It will also undoubtably effect my website until I adjust.
Fair warning. I hope to keep things rolling on here, but who knows if it will end up working out that way. Until I get used to my new job and new schedule and all that, things here might be less frequent than they were before.
Congratulations!! Way to be awesome!
Congrats on the new job! I’m glad you get to stay at a place you already enjoy, even if that start time is a major pain in the butt.
Yeah, the start time is painful, but by the time I’m awake enough to know what I’m doing, I only have two hours left in my shift… which is nice.
Congrats! I hope it works out well for you and that the adjustment period is short. It sounds like 2014 is getting a good start!
I hope it keeps getting better!
Congratulations! Great way to start 2014!
Thanks! It’s exactly what we need right now….
That is wonderful news, congratulations!!! Great to hear positive things to start the new year. Best wishes in getting settled into the new job.
