Whoa Mama

I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan...

Nearly four months after leaving my job, moving our family, and re-assembling ourselves, I HAVE A JOB!!!!!

I have networked, applied, written letters, sent letters, re-vamped my resume, interviewed, interviewed again, taken temp work, submitted more resumes, left temp work, networked more. I am like many of you and much of America. Following all the advice that Monster has to give, looking every day, applying for positions that range in appropriateness of fit, grateful for the love, support, encouragement of family and friends. We all try to get creative, stay positive, stem frustration, fear, anxiety, while pursuing the equation that will turn over results. To my friends in this pursuit, stay strong!

My husband is my biggest fan and tireless cheerleader!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Scott! Thank you for being my shoulder to lean on, open ear, hand to hold and teaching our sweet boys how to be a good man and friend.

Facebook has been a really great, and unexpected, source of support. Thank you to friends near and far whose kind and positive and funny comments have been a real gift.

The biggest thank you goes out to Joy! Joy taught a fitness class that I attend for several years. We got back in touch on Facebook and have been able to reconnect, get the kids together and even find some adult time to run. Joy casually connected me with an opportunity. And Holy Smoke…that opportunity was successful!!!

I will be the Marketing Manager for an architecture firm. I was offered a part time position doing work that I have experience in and frankly, I’m quite good at. I am thrilled. A part time position that allows me on most days to pick the kids up from school is ideal. There is even potential that this will open up to a full time position. That probably wouldn’t happen before all three monkeys are in one school and same schedule (September). I’ll jump off that bridge when I come to it. In any case
