where to start?

hm, should I start with..

I´m ill, I´ve got a rotten cold, smacked me in the face with no warning whatsoever, I hate being ill but still dragged myself into work, of course.

or should I start with…

I did it!!!!! I got the job, got word back today, via e-mail, and I am going over again tomorrow to finalize the details, discuss wage, possible company car (not sure about this, yet)

I have no idea how I managed to pull this one off, I have been told in the past that I can sell myself well but I did not expect this!!

I guess I am taking a gamble here, it´s a much smaller firm, not as high tech, certainly much smaller office but who gives a toss about stuff like this, I don´t, I am just glad that I might be able to have a life besides work again, soon.

Still, I feel for crying when I think about it, stupid I know and probably due to the fact that I have to start all over again, not knowing what I am letting myself in for but I think the biggest worry is having to tell … no, not my boss, … my customer. I´ve established a really good working relationship with these guys and I will miss them – a lot!! (I will miss my colleagues, too, of course but I still get to see them since we are all more or less from the same town)

I dread to think what´s going to happen when I finish working there, not because I am Mrs Perfect, the Best or whatever but because I grew into the workload, I know the guys, the products, the deadlines and the customs ins and outs, my colleagues don´t and despite my efforts and pleas to get them involved, they´ve always taken the attitude of – no need, you´re here. So, soon enough, I won´t be here anymore and I know that this is going to cause one hell of a problem for colleagues and customers alike.

Then again, why should I care?? Sometimes I wonder if I am trying to talk myself out of the new job, that would be suicide more like. I guess I am just scared of the unknown, so to speak 😉


I am your average wife,mother,friend,employee....a bit lost in my world, a bit crazy at times but always good for a laugh - I think ;-)

    Congrats on the new job! That’s great!!


  2. You will do just fine. It’s all so unnerving when we make changes in our lives. Eventually, we fall into a comfortable pattern as we learn the ropes of the changes we’ve made. Good luck!


  3. Wow. My reply showed up as being made on 11/5/2012 at 1:40 am. When, in reality, it is 5/10/12 at 8:41 pm. Hmmm.

    Boo Ya! Yes, separating is a time of grieving. I got laid off, so I find myself still in the pissed off stage. I also happen to be in the worst age bracket for re-hiring, so I’m working on making my own way in something else. Congrats Bunny!
