Here comes the
good bittersweet news….I was offered a job at the company I applied and interviewed! Today I put in my official notice of resignation at my current job which was very difficult. I am very excited for my new job though so that helped me get through. My start date is in 2 weeks! Last week I wrote about the book Next-Day Job Interview: Prepare Tonight and Get the Job Tomorrow and how great I think the book is. The book was very helpful in every aspect up to getting the job, but said nothing about how to quit your current one. It was very stressful and I ended up googling how to write a letter of resignation. It all turned out fine and everyone is very happy for me and my new opportunity! I am really going to miss all of my coworkers and the company but this is a really good opportunity to move forward with my career.
After work things got even better. My mom, aunt, and cousin, Sarah (who is newly engaged) went wedding dress shopping! She found the PERFECT most beautiful dress for her and when she rang the bell for good luck we all cried! It was such an awesome, emotional experience that I never want to forget! I am soo happy for her We went to dinner after and had a really nice time. Now we are all stuffed and happy.
The boys all go together and played paintball this afternoon. I will have to ask Craig about the details when he wakes up. He has to leave for work tonight at 9pm so he will be up soon. All I know is that they had a good time and I think Craig only got hit once, he is so sneaky! LOL
