New Job!!

So Whoo Hoo - I start a new job on Monday - yep, I know it's President's Day, but not everyone gets it off. I'm excited. And happy! One of the reasons I've not been posting so much lately is that I quit my job a couple of weeks ago. Felt great - like a huge weight had been lifted off of me. I didn't talk too much about my last job, but it wasn't one where I'd ever really been tremendously happy. But you know, I'm a single mom, and I have to work... So I was really trying to stay positive and busy, and not let panic take over, but I don't do so well with that kind of stress, and also tend to isolate, and not want to talk to people, or really let them know how I am.

I'm pretty impressed with myself though - I ended up getting 5 interviews, out of about 9 resume's that I sent out.

This last interview today pays a lot better, is a lot more flexible and really might be pretty stressful, (sounds like they really need someone to get them all organised). But at the end of the day more money is a great thing. The last job the pay was not very good, and I was getting pretty tired of having to stress most months about getting the landlord his rent check. Not that it was ever to a point where I didn't know how I would manage - but definitely - putting off a lot of things because the rent was coming due.

Not too bad - a hot two weeks out of work, and I'm back in the saddle again. I'm happy, but nervous at the same time. Starting a new job is always stressful. One of the main reasons I stayed at the last place as long as I did. I was there almost two and a half years, and stayed because basically I knew the ropes and could do the job - but was never very happy or fulfilled with it.

Anyway - I just had to share - I'm happy and it's good.

Just a shot of a pretty sunset at the Club, where I live.

LOL, I thought, no more comments for Abi, until I saw that in the previous post are 5 Woo Hoo's and it FINALLY clicked!

Congrats Abi! It stinks to spend so much time at something that's not really doing it for you. I hope your new job is more fulfilling and fun!!

Congrats on the new job. It wasn't until I got a job I loved that I realised how miserable I'd been at the job I only liked. I hope you have amazing success and still have plenty of time to knit and spin!
