As I have been blogging the past couple of months, tomorrow is suppose to be my last day with my company...my department has been laid off and I was settled with the fact that my time here was up...
Well apparently God had different plans because I found out Friday (when I was off) that a job offer had been submitted for me within the company...I spoke to the guy 2 weeks ago but hadn't heard from him since so I had NO CLUE that I was really being considered for the job..
In some aspects, I was a little upset that this was going on without my knowledge...what if I had made plans to move out of town or go to school full time, etc.? What if I had already planned/spent my severance package (which I had planned and arranged to pay some stuff off)? A lot of things could have changed since I spoke with him 2 weeks ago and a courtesy call would have been nice.....
BUT, I was told to look at the fact that I wasn't moving and that whatever arrangements I made could be altered....I still have health insurance, steady income, etc. and don't have the stress about looking for new employment...so while I am GLAD and RELIEVED, I am not 1000% giddy....hope that makes sense...lol
On to other topics...it is raining today and probably will be worse when I get off this afternoon...not sure if I am going to class tonight at the gym because I know traffic will be horrible..we'll see...if I don't go, I will do the ole Shred and probably some Spark exercise videos to make up for it...
I am very ready to go home...everyone at work is cleaning out their desks and I can't help but feel sad about them not finding anything with the company...a lot of them have been here less time than I have so their severance won't be as much as mine would have been...I pray that they find something soon so they won't be stressing and having a hard time financially, etc....these are those bittersweet moments that we experience in life, right?
I do know that with my new job, my hours will be 8-5 so I'll have to adjust my gym schedule...it won't be pretty to say the least....oh well....as long as I GO to the gym, right??
Today's model is Mary J. Blige...she is a real style chameleon and I love her for that!!! She has gone through a lot but it has been good watching her grow into the diva she is....we should all learn that life gives us hard patches but we can either be bruised/hurt by them or we can let the abrasiveness buff us up so we can SHINE!!!
