Just when I thought it was safe to go into the water! ;)

Thursday, May 24, 2012

:) Okay not really about sharks... but I thought my dilemma with the job offer was over when I respectfully declined the position yesterday. I explained that I am a morning person and that the night hours were going to be too difficult for me ... and I'd be constantly taking something to wake up, something to fall asleep, something to wake up, etc.

Well, to my surprise, they acknowledged that they understood but asked if I would be open for a different time slot... I said sure. They said they'd probably get back to me in the next couple of weeks and so I thought I'd have a few weeks to reconsider the position and get used to the idea of what would be expected of me.

They called back three minutes later!! They said they were having a day long meeting, but that the supervisor who had wanted to hire me would be calling me back with details as soon as the meeting was over, at about 5pm. I got the call at 4:17 pm - they were willing to offer me a day position (Sun-Wed, 12n-10pm) with Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays off. That seems a lot more workable than the 7pm - 7 am schedule!

I was left again to discuss this with family and friends to see if it was right for me. I'm hoping to really pray and be able to decide wholeheartedly that I want the position or I do not, by the end of the holiday weekend. I realize this is not the dream job I've always wanted, but the pay is incredible and maybe I could really learn to feel good about what I'd be doing there...??

Anyway, my knee has been in pain lately and even though I ice it and try and prop it up when I can, it still feels tender. I'm not sure if it's residual from the cardio kickboxing lower body workout or from pushing the lawnmower around the backyard, but it's persistent!

Eating clean has been easier and easier and the last time I weighed myself I was down a few more lbs. bringing me to 16 lbs. lost since April. My husband told me today that he could really feel the difference while hugging me and that's always nice to hear! I am hoping to pick up some more groceries today and will do my best to buy only the healthy foods that keep us within calorie limits and feeling like we're eating good!

Here's wishing everyone a fabulous day and if you're celebrating early - a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend!
