I want to update you guys on what’s going on over here, as well as apologize for being uncommonly quiet on comments, etc. I guess I never realized how much I rely on being in front of my computer during lunch to get those comments in. I appreciate you guys sticking with me as I get this new schedule figured out.
Monday was online applications for just… hours. And calling in favors for interviews. Gah. Tuesday was interviews and having to swing by my former employer to turn in some paperwork. Wednesday was a fantastic phone interview. Thursday was a follow up interview from Tuesday and a job offer! Then Friday morning brought a SECOND offer from the Wednesday phone interview! I can’t believe it!
I ended up taking the second offer for the Wednesday phone interview. I start this coming Friday.
The new job is a remote position for a company in VA. I’ll be working on accreditation for medical education programs. The best part is that this new company works very closely with… wait for it… RC!! I am SO excited to be working with her again, even if it’s at a distance.
I ended up buying myself a congratulatory present: a Tassimo home brewing system! I’ve been wanting one for years and figured that, since I’ll be working from the house, I’ve have earned the privilege. Hello 35 calorie cappuccinos!
With the amazingly fast turnaround on employment, it looks like we’ll still be moving forward with the upcoming DS cycle. A big prayer for us over the past six months as we considered expanding our family was me to having a work from home job. Neither one of us expected that prayer to be answered in quite this way -with being laid off- but we are beyond thankful. God’s plans continue to be beyond our imagination!
We have seen the Lord work in unexpected, amazing, mind-blowing ways over the past ten days. I am SO thankful that He has this under His control. He is so much better at planning my life than I am!
My God is Greater, My God is Stronger, Lord, You are Higher than Any Other!
