Sometimes, Things Just Work

I've had a good day today.

Yesterday was my last day at the HVAC place. The owner did find a new office manage and I was able to get her trained, which even with three days of training, I feel like I was able to give her more than I got myself. I laid awake last night, wondering if I'd made a huge mistake by quitting a job, when I didn't have a full time job to go immediately to. With only being able to get one day a week at the arts and crafts store, even with my husband's blessing to quit and save my sanity, I wasn't sure this was a good idea. Hindsight is 20/20, as the saying goes.

I got up this morning, nervous still. I was trying to be positive, because I had two interviews scheduled for today. One was in the morning with a non-profit, and the other was in the afternoon with a staffing company that's hiring for some other business.

The morning interview was at 9 AM, and it's for another office manager position. I was there for about 50 minutes, and they told me they were only doing 3 interviews total. After I'd been home for about an hour, my phone rang. It was the non-profit calling me back already with an offer to start on Monday. They are even letting me take time off in April to go back home for my mom's service (she had wanted us to wait until we could be all together, be feeling better about things, and do it in the spring when the weather would be nicer).

At my age (I'm 39 going on 7), I've finally realized I can have my dream jobs but they probably won't come through for me. I have to be realistic and get what I can and make the best of it. And t be happy to have it. Someone is always going to have it way worse than I am, and to someone out there, I live in the lap of luxury.

They liked me after only 50 minutes and a resume. And because they want me to start on Monday, it's like a birthday gift from my mom. Her birthday was St. Patrick's Day. Why do I feel like she's looking out for me?
