Finally I have a job

I got the call today...I start tomorrow. I am so excited. I have been unemployed for 6 months. After what seems like a million resumes sent and a about a dozen interviews I finally landed the job I wanted. I had been offered a couple previously but they just were not what I was looking for. I wanted a job that I knew I could grow in and that was in the field I had experience in. I am going to be learning some new things and it is not going to be easy. Not only will I be in online college but I will be studying for work to pass a test. The starting pay is great and I will have benefits starting from day one. I had the interview about three weeks ago right at the time I was going to take a job with another company. I was confident in the interview. They told me a couple of days later I was their #1 candidate, I just had to wait for HR to call me and than getting the background check etc. I am excited but nervous at the same time. I guess it is always that way with a new job, Not really knowing what to expect and not sure how the people are. I hope Troy is up to running the kids around. I think he will do what it takes to help me because I can say the last six months as sucked. I am so sick of worrying how we are going to make all the bills and we were not able to do anything fun with the kids this summer.

Well I am off. Need to try and get myself on a better sleep schedule. 2 am is just not going to cut it anymore.

Also any of you smart people out there. As you can see I am not the worlds best writer. I would say I suck. I have a huge essay to write for school. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. My topic is why I think it is better to buy a home vs. renting. Give me your thoughts while your at it. Thanks:)

Oh one more thing. I rocked the kitchen today. I made apple oatmeal cinnamon cookies , applecrisp and stuffed peppers. We planted a apple tree five or six years ago and this was the first year it produced anything worth while. Did not want to see any of them go to waste. I still have about 10 more so it looks like I will be making more cookies this weekend. I am going to look for something a little differnt than I already did.
The peppers also came from the garden and wow did they come out yummy. I told Troy that was all my domestication for the year lol. Night all

xxoo S

Congrads on your job. My husband has been in HR for many years. I know the weird dance they have to do before they hire someone.

A nice free way to learn about writing is to sign up with Ezine Articles. Your articles may get turned down for a bit but they give you free training and it's great!

I home schooled my son and he did really well in his SATs and in college too. I always taught him to "tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them and then tell them what you told them".

That's a pretty tough topic in this economy. Although buying a house right now can be much cheaper with all that's going on. There are lots of foreclosures and great deals out there.

Well, good luck and happy blogging!
