Job Seeker Blog #9
Because, at last, I have a job, at least for a while. I got offered the ALE position I interviewed for yesterday. They didn't even do the second interview, just called and said did I still want it. Since no one else has begged me to show up and certainly not at that rate of pay, I said, "Sure." I've already got all my paperwork faxed in, and will start on March 2, just before my dad's visit, which is sort of a bummer. But, he'll be glad I have at least 9 months of work!
I do hope a permanent position comes along, but this is something I know how to do and isn't terribly stressful. I am truly relieved, because, folks, I about lost it yesterday. The clutch went out on Tuba Boy's new car, and the thought of having yet another large expense that my dwindling savings would have to cover, plus a whole lot of obligations I was not able to work out to a good compromise, plus the worst sinus headache in recent memory...alll that just about made me go BOOM.
I sure am glad I can write a happier post. I really appreciate how Lee has helped me through this. It's been hard. And he installed those wooden blinds nicely, too.
