Tomorrow I start my new job. I'm excited but I'm also nervous and kinda sad. My whole life for the past year has been looking after Paul at home and it's going to be weird not doing that anymore. I know I'll still have days off but it's not the same. I've been a little emotional over it here and there the last few days. It comes out when I least expect it though - 2 in the morning while I'm crawling into bed, while taking a walk with Dan and Paul, tonight on the phone with my mom. I just get choked up. I know it's worth it and we need it, though. We'll settle into a whole new routine as a family. I'm also really excited for Dan - he's looking forward to taking on the role of "Stay at Home Dad." I think he'll do a fantastic job!

I should get to bed. 8-5 tomorrow...

I have a new job!!

I start on Monday as the new full time team leader at a clothing store! I'm SO excited! I had been hoping for the assistant manager position but I think I'll get there one day! My manager said that they're hiring me on in this position with hopes that I will be promoted in the future, whether it's at this store or on of the other banner stores of the company.

This really is a blessing. The moment I let things go and started trusting God, I started feeling at peace about it all and He just placed this opportunity in my lap. I am so grateful!

Starting to Make Some Sense

This past week has been a mix of good and bad. I'll start with the bad.

We have been in a heat wave. Oh ya. Fun. With a capital F. *I don't think sarcasm comes through very well in writing* It has been disgustingly hot! Up to 40 degrees with a humidex of 80-95%! Blah! All I can say is thank goodness for central air! ;-)

The good is I've had a job interview! Two, actually. I emailed my resume to three different places last Wednesday and by Friday I got a call for an interview on Sunday. That went really well and they asked me back for a second one that I had yesterday. I'm REALLY hoping I get it! It's full time, salaried and is the same type of work I was doing before my mat leave. It is a MUCH better company to work for, though. Not all the B.S. I dealt with at my former job. Plus, it's enough pay that Dan would be able to stay home with Paul! He is really excited about that.

So, I've been praying and trusting and praying and trusting...and a little more of both. I'll let you know if I get it - I should know by Tuesday!
