I thought they were going to mail me an offer letter and I could drag it out more; alas, no. They called today with an offer about $2000 more than I asked and a start date of July 7th. I had to say yes because the wheels on Duty’s employment bus are moving S L O W L Y.
1. When Duty does get a job, there’ll be surplus cash and I can then pay down some of my credit cards. I’ve been covering them all now but paying down faster would be nice.
2. I seem to do better when focused outside the house. Perhaps the dog-walking for 2 hours a week wasn’t enough. It remains to be seen.
3. I really do like my friends there and they like me. My phone was ringing off the hook when the news got around the office with people saying they’re happy the Minister of Fun is coming back. It’s always good for my ego.
1. When Duty does get a job, the doggies go back to doggie day care which is a bit spendy. I just don’t feel comfortable with them being in a crate all day. I know people do it but it makes me sad.
2. Dragging my ass out the door every day is gonna be a pain. Driving back home across that dag bridge every day in the summer (and especially on Friday!) is going to suck.
3. Less time to grow PI. Feh! Just when I’m getting it rocking!
1. Me! I have no clothes to wear to work! I stopped buying dressy work stuff. Grrr!
So, new adventures await.
Please keep a good thought for Duty. I tried not to show how bummed I was about this but he caught me and is taking it so so hard. I set all this in motion when I had that huge shift and it affected both of us in ways possibly-positive-but-hidden-at-the-moment.
