I interviewed for another job, one which would have been permanent rather than consulting, and it confirmed my decision in accepting the first. What gets even funnier on the job front is that another company has been courting me for a third position! Considering where it is, I was tempted to automatically say no, as my drive would go from 15 minutes to over an hour. But an over 50% increase in pay and this company's name on my resume. . .hmmm??? Got to wonder.
My dad came over one afternoon and we headed down to a local orchard to get freshly picked apples, and pies, and goodies to take to relatives DH and I were going to be visiting. The pies were yummy and we're still working our way through the bag of apples I bought.
DH, Jack and I headed down to Tennessee to visit my aunt and uncle for my uncle's 77th birthday. I think if we didn't bring our dog we might just be turned away at the door! Jack and my uncle just adore each other. My cousin came up from SC for the weekend and we were able to spend a relaxing and enjoyable time just chatting and catching up. My aunt so reminds me of my mom that it's alway hard when we leave. But, we have their visit in the spring to look forward to.
Speaking of the job, it's going well so far. I started last Tuesday and am slowly getting the hang of how they do things there. It seems that they work at a much slower pace than what I have in the past, and that's a welcome relief. I have time to learn the business and do things correctly.
In between all of that, I've been learning to use my crock pot again. I've made some really yummy meals, and one not so good one. I finished up some sewing I was doing for Christmas. Yep, you read that right. For Christmas. When I showed DH the finished stockings his response was "Who stole my wife? She never gets things done this far in advance!"
So, two weeks later and there's just no time to wait.
