I was hoping it would not take so long to go from this to this announcement...but I can finally say---
I am EMPLOYED!
I am kinda mixed up emotionally at the moment. Very glad to have a job, excited about the opportunity and the company I will be working for--worried about the fact I haven't worked a nine hour day in over a year. I will have a lot of learning to do and obviously I need to impress, etc.
On top of the normal pressures of starting a new job, we will be dealing with the transitions for the whole family, especially with school starting on Thursday (I start work on Tuesday).
But for right now--we are going to enjoy the long weekend, the ending of summer and some new beginnings!!
