The End is Near(er)

I learned yesterday that a person we interviewed last week for my former boss’ position has accepted it!

You know what this means?

I can QUIT!!

Three months ago, I was one tired & sad lady. While we are not totally out of the woods financially or career-wise for Jeff, we are out in a clearing, blinking our eyes in the bright sunshine of possibilities. He has been working nearly full-time at the school from which he just graduated. It covers the “behind” as we await better offers.

There will be someone responsible for the department I now manage. I can walk away (with the encouragement of my husband & father) most likely at the end of next month without remorse. If not sooner, if God opens some better opportunities.

I’ve never been happier in the face of unemployment. πŸ˜‰

    I hope you don’t get too bored if you are home 100% – since you don’t have kids yet.
    Good luck

    Thanks everyone!

    Karen- With my giant stash of fabric and yarn, I doubt the “B” word will cross my lips. πŸ™‚ I also hope to do some volunteer work.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
