My Big News

I have a new job! Okay, a promotion within my current company, but a new department and a big raise!

I interviewed four times and signed my offer letter today. I will be the Associate Proposal Writer and the company's only proposal writer.

The pay isn't as awesome as I want, but all greed aside, I am so content with it. I have been out of the workforce for a long time and really haven't used my degree until now. The pay is right where it should be.

I am really proud of myself and I am not afraid to say it. In the past two years i started as a stay at home mom, I left my home in AZ, got divorced, quit my job, moved in with my parents, started a temp job, was hired full time (bottom on the food chain) and am now going to be writing and managing proposals and RFPs for fortune 100 and 500 companies. my company is also willing to pay for me to get some design training to work with marketing.

All the while, I have stayed true to who I am and what I believe. I am surviving as a single mom and feel like surviving may turn to thriving soon.

I will be able to spill the rest in another month or so. Nothing to do with my job though.

I am so thankful for the path I am on and for the blessings that have come from God.

To top it all off, my sister may have an awesome new job soon too. She should know soon!!!

Thank you to everyone for your support and encouragement.

I really really want to tell you

But, tomorrow is the BIG day. You only have a few days left of waiting (I hope only a few).

My sister has just as big of a day for the same reason. It is kinda of, okay, REALLY a big coincidence.

Are you excited yet?

Not as much as I am!!!

Oh, and I am NOT pregnant. I did not buy a house. Or a car.

I wish...

...I could tell you what has been going on, but nothing is final and I don't want to jinx it. Oh, but some things are SO big!!!! That's why I have been avoiding you all. I just want to spill, but I'll give you some hints:

1. I just signed some very important papers tonight.
2. A career change may be coming
3. My list felt naked with only two hints

So, that's it. Nothing more from me tonight.

Oh, except it's my son's 6th birthday!!! AND I had a parent-teacher conference and he is "brilliant." (her words :). If only he'd stop tattling on other kids...
