It's amazing the things that can happen in a week

Thursday, September 30, 2010

So... I haven't been here often. I've luckily been able to post my food & exercise(not much, I add)
I have perfectly good reason as to why I've been absent lately.....
I got offered a new job!!!! Yes, that means I will no longer have to work 45-50 hours a week. That means I won't have to drive 12 hours a week to and from work! Now.. i certainly will miss the people there. I love them all so much... we were like a family. But it's time for me to start something anew. I will be working at the Office Max right by my house. I'm excited because 1. I love office supplies! 2.Not a long drive 3.A LOT LESS STRESS.
I will have 20 extra hours a week..... TWENTY! I could workout 2 hours a day and STILL HAVE MORE TIME A WEEK!
Let me say... I cannot tell you how excited I am.
I haven't put in my two weeks yet. I have my drug test on Monday and I think I will give my notice then. As of right now... I'm working and working and working..... AND WORKING. I'm trying to get all my things in order. I know things won't be easy for the ladies in the office when I leave, but I'm working really hard to make it as easy as possible.
Now, the only thing about Office Max... I will start out at Part Time status. Up to 39 hours, but not elligable for benefits. Well... would you like to know what that means?
It means that when Bryan starts his job on the 11th... he will then be able to get benefits by Nov 1st. And the union pays for family insurance. So, how can we get that taken care of?
This is just totally insane. We are still going to have our large ceremony next October, but we are going to have a very small ceremony on 10.10.10(hopefully... gotta make some calls) Our parents and best man and maid of honor will be there. And it will be official.
I cannot believe it.
One job application, one phone call, one job interview..... has completely changed my life.

This might not be the exact way I expected it to go, but it's going to be the best... I'm so excited about this journey!!

    OH MYLANTA!!! Girl, I am SO excited for you! I know there's probably a lot of stress right now with all these changes, but that is certainly accompanied by overwhelming excitement!
    I'm so glad things are coming together--it's funny how God's timing is so perfect, even when we never expected things to turn out that way. :)
