Let's catch up

Well I didn't do so hot on the blogging front in October, did I? To be honest, since we have been back from vacation I just have not been "myself". In the last week my life has received some surprises. Last Monday, I received a phone call from my second job I work in the winter. Also, the same place my husband and I met. Thinking it was regarding my second job I called back immediately, never expecting what came next. They were calling to offer me a position in management full time. I was speechless, I had not even put in a resume (they were so impressed by my hard work on the weekends that they approached me for the position). We met on Wednesday and discussed what they were going to offer. One thing you must understand is that I currently work in downtown Cleveland which is about a 45-60 minute drive from my house. This position would be 15-20 minutes away from my house.

Thursday morning I go to my job as usual and get pulled into the office. My manager then offers me a position in the Akron office which is 15-20 minutes from my house. The catch, they can't promise that it is permanent being that we are going through a merger with another company. This was such a hard decision. I have been putting out resumes since I graduated last August, but have not even received a phone call. For this to happen it was unbelievable, but was going to take a big decision from my heart. Since my one broker (boss) had left in August I was truly unhappy. Since we were TTC, I decided to put off putting any more resumes out in the work force not wanting to have to start a new job and get screwed out of maternity leave.

My husband and I talked it over and over. We would both be working at the same employer full time if I took the position, I wanted him to be okay with that. Well yesterday morning I put my two weeks notice in at my current job, it was a hard thing to do but will only be the best for my future. With the position I accepted, it will be a huge stepping stone for our family in the future. I prayed to God about it a lot over the weekend, hoping he would guide me in the right direction. I am so happy to have that stress behind me, and am really excited to start my new position. My last day will be the 13th which is also my birthday.

So now that you are caught up with my life, I hope to make a effort to blog daily as I go onto this new experience in the up coming weeks. This weekend is going to be very crazy. We have my best friend's son's 1st birthday party and a surprise 50th for my father. So it will be nice to have a little relaxation this weekend! Hope everyone has had a great start this week!
