good news (finally!)

April 21st, 2015 at 02:48 pm


Yes, that deserves all caps and three exclamation points. Not only did I just accept a position at a great place, my salary is right where I wanted it (read: much higher than I've made at former jobs), and it really seems to be a great fit. The people were genuinely nice, it ties into one of my college majors a bit, and I think I'll get to use most of my skills. Plus it's a brand new position, so I'll be building it from the ground up. I start in a couple of weeks.

I'm seriously thrilled. I can't wait! It doesn't seem real!

Tonight I'm looking at a duplex that's available May 1. It seems pretty perfect. There is a lot of interest in it, so we'll see... but if I want it and get it, I'll be moving ASAP. The actual act of moving is not something I look forward to, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Things finally feel like they are moving forward!

Now I need to buy a few key work clothing pieces and to lose these 10 pounds of stress weight I've gained in the last six months. All in due time. I think I'll have the opportunity to walk a lot more at my new job, and they have an in-house gym!

    Congratulations as the successful candidate for the job, what wonderful news worthy of all the emphasis you care to give.
    Is the duplex a rental? What is the square footage? Why is that preferred to an apartment? What costs and added work/responsibility are added to rent? What transportation options to work? What services are on your regular route?

    Moving is hard work, no way to sugar coat. Is it your plan to hire a truck and crew of two? I hope you'll take the time to write a list of all the things that need to be done in advance of a move. Necessary to avoid the nasty bumps that plague every move.

    ccf, ceejay, and petunia - Thanks!! I'm super excited.

    snafu - thanks! and no worries. I am a list-maker. I brought a clipboard with questions to my rental viewing. I have moved several times in the last 15 years, so I am prepared.
