JJ's got night practice all week, and travelling ALL weekend, so we can't formally celebrate until next weekend, so we broke into his giant Yuengling tonight when he got home.
Florida gets 1 point for having Yuengling. Something we couldn't get in Indiana!
So let's see... the job! The company is a plywood and cabinet company. I'll be doing all of the accounting, bookkeeping type stuff, plus some HR work. I'll get my own office!!! with an attached bathroom!!! I've been talking to the owner's wife because she's in HR and recruiting, and she's so nice, and the owner, her husband, is great. Best part - their son works for them, and he has a chocolate lab named Lily, who I met today, and who is also a regular at the office! YAY!
I am SO happy to have this job for so many reasons. Not only so we can BUY A HOUSE, but also because I absolutely need a schedule. I need to plan things. I need to work all day, come home and make dinner, work out, watch TV and relax. Then my weekends are long runs, food shopping and errands, church, and friend time. I'm so happy. So so so happy!
So I have 5 days of unemployment left. I'm going to meet with the food blogger magazine people this week, and maybe do a little new job clothes shopping, but mostly get moving on the house search!
Thank you all for your best wishes and positive thinking. It really means so much to me!
Next up for Ash - scoping out some 5k's for October to get me back in race mode. Then some longer races hopefully around Jan/Feb to get me ready for the 15k in March.
Can you believe it's already September?!?!?! I'm so happy, I NEED for the weather to cool down...
