It’s time to share the good news. I got a new job!
Losing one’s job is a process. Managing unemployment is a process. Searching for a new job is a process. Even getting hired is a process! The verbal offer came a little over a week ago, then the letter, then the pre-employment screening, then the background check. After ALL OF THAT — I think I’ve made it to the ‘excitement’ phase!
Peter and I will be moving to Maryland. The next phase of our journey will begin — relocation!
I’m so excited to be joining a wonderful firm, with great people who are really excited to have me joining them. Peter and I will use May to do some scouting for housing, find our new “home” (although it might be a temporary home, then our final one — we will see). And then we have a beach trip planned in early June around a wedding — all before I start my new job in later June.
Thank you to everyone who helped me through this journey so far. You helped in SOOO man ways — offered me advice, comfort, positivity and … (sometimes) a shoulder to cry on when I needed it. This process was ALL everyone said it would be. Surprising. Scary at times. Relaxing. Nerve-wrecking. And Exciting.
I feel like I’m nose pressed against a fence…..with one foot on the planks about to hoist myself over to the other side. I can’t wait to see what’s over there! I will be sure to let you know! Love you guys! #ChooseHappiness365 (181/365)
Ciao for now…Diane
