Some time off...

Wow, so much has happened since I posted last. My last day at work was the 29th. Saying goodbye to everyone was harder than I thought it would be, but I am still very sure it was the right decision to make.

And things actually came through in the new job department. I was afraid it would take forever to find a new job that I wanted, but it worked out just right. I was off all week last week and had a chance to get some work done around the house and catch up on everything a bit. The week before I had been offered a position with an adoption agency but just wasn't sure I liked everything about the job. It was contract work and would be a lot of driving. I had almost decided to take it, then I had one interview which I totally spaz'd on with an adolescent residential facility (substance abuse/mental health). They lost me in the interview when they asked if I had any training restraining children. Woah... too direct care for me. Honestly, I got so nervous after that, I don't know why. But they offered me that position, amazingly enough.
Then I had an interview with an agency I had applied for quite a while before. It's with a non-profit health care clinic here in Norman and it's 8-5 and no overtime. I was so excited, but I knew they were interviewing a lot of applicants. They called last Thursday and said I got the job and could I start Monday! I am really excited, it's exactly what I've wanted to do. And no more commuting. Yeah!
