All Good Things Must Come to an End

Well, once again, I've been MIA on my blog.  Big surprise.  But I have an excuse!

I GOT A JOB!!!!

I start tomorrow.  The last 2 weeks have been really, really busy!  I interviewed last Thursday (18th) and got called back that afternoon to come for a second interview this past Friday.  I met the lady who's retiring and I met with the management team again.  They told me not to worry if I didn't hear from them for a few days.  Well, at 5PM the recruiter called and offered me the job starting tomorrow!  The only downside is that I am on probation with their temp agency for 30 days.  But, I can live with that.

I've been stitching.  Mainly Halloween goodies.  I did finish Lizzie*Kate's Halloween. I will take pic when the sun comes back out.

Well, for those affected by Irene, you've been in my prayers.  I hope that all of you are safe and sustained little or no damage.  Here, we've got flooding. 

So, wish me luck tomorrow cause it's the start of a Good Thing!

Stop by again,

Blessings,

Joanie

Yay! Congratulations! No problem on the probation/temp thing, I'm sure; I notice in the last few years that companies seem to do tons more to protect themselves. Isn't it a bittersweet feeling to go back, though? I was so happy to get a job after being out for a while, but then I was so sorry that I'd miss my stitching, my pets, my exercise routine...

Great news! Best of luck in your new position. Sometimes I wish for a lull in work but then I would probably miss it. I still find time to stitch but my cleaning skills have gone downhill LOL!

Joanie - first I am glad to hear you and your family are safe from Irene - such devastation in the NE - thankfully she skirted the NE FL coast and we hardly even got any rain. Second - CONGRATULATIONS! on your new job YGG - I know you will do a great job. Good luck on the first week and that 30 days will go so quickly
