EENY MEENY
Yesterday was a horrible day. Instead of listening to my heart and head, I let my boss freak me out and convince me to hold out for more money and my stomach was tied up in knots for hours because of it.

However, all's well that ends well, assuming the contract arrives any minute, which I'm expecting...

I've taken the job with Company A, the permanent position, the one that I've been leaning toward the whole time.* And I'm happy and relieved and sad and resigned and too many damned emotions all tied up at once, what with having the stress level plunge to the basement, and the grief over leaving a job I've loved and liked and hated, and the insecurity and anticipation that goes with starting a new job with new people and new routines and new challenges.

The start date is still in question as I have to sign the contract, talk to my HR and my boss, but I'm hoping that I can start on October 18th. Regardless of my start date, I've been invited to participate in an offsite meeting overnight in Denmark with my new colleages on Tuesday and Wednesday next week. Butterlifes! There you are! Welcome back to my stomach! ow! stop biting!

You can all uncross your various body parts now, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I didn't doubt for a minute that you'd get a job, and I'm just very glad this one worked out for you. It's stressful, but a really good exercise. Now be sure to keep those running shoes tied around your neck! In fact, it's a good time to read that book, Who Moved My Cheese, now that the pressure is off. It IS a good book.

I HAVE read it :) I read it during the summer. It made me roll my eyes, but it WAS a good lesson, even for me, since I had just gone through an experience that caused me to behave like one of the mice (moving to open landscaping) and not necessarily the mouse I would have chosen. :P
