Hello hello to everyone!!! Its been a full month since I last posted. A month filled with sadness, regret, anticipation, elation and so many more emotions...a mentally exhausting month. :) However...........I have some wonderful news to share!! Here's the scoop:
First and foremost, I want to thank you all for the support you've given me and the kind words of encouragement, when I lost my job. It meant SO much! Love and hugs to each and every one of you ♥ ♥ ♥
Sooo, a lot has happened to me over the last week and a half. I'll *try* to give you the condensed version :)))
3/25 - a good friend, who also happens to be my old boss, called to wish me a belated HB and found out that I was being laid off. She said, "oh thats a shame...we just filled your old position last week". Huh. Interesting.
3/26 - she calls me first thing in the morning to tell me that somehow...overnight, the girl they'd hired was not going to be working out after all. WHAT???!!!! My old position was open again. ~CRAZY~!!! She then proceeded to tell me that she missed me and wanted me to come back; that I would be absolutely perfect for the job, and to go online and fill out the application and send it in. WHOA. Over that weekend (28-29)...I did. :D I finished up my resume (which at that point I still hadn't finished) and did the app. Submitted it and prayed it went thru ok, and I remembered everything....ugh - so nervous
3/31 - I received a call from the headquarters of the company telling me they'd like me to come in for an interview on 4/2. HEEEEEE!!!! I was so excited!! Doesn't this sound like..meant to be? It was amazing how it all just fell into place!!!
4/2 - I had a "testing" interview at the HQ at 8:00am, followed by the 'in person' interview at a different location at 10:45am. Girls...I was freakin SO nervous!! lol During the testing phase, I felt like I was on that show..."Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?" LOLOL!!!! They tested my math skills! Dee dee dee!!!!!! :D Anyway, the testing and interview seemed to go well; although I was nervous, I felt good about everything when I left. And I looked awesome!! LOL I was rockin a new outfit! Heck yeah!! :D
4/3 - since I was officially unemployed, I had the day off Friday. I was waiting all day with the house phone and my cell phone by my side. Why? I don't know...they told me it would be no more than a week before I'd hear anything. Plus, they're known for being slow. ---- 5:45pm rolls around and my old boss calls me. "Have you heard anything?" She was just excited..., I said, "No...too soon I think". We hung up and not 5 minutes later the HQ calls and offers me the job. OMG OMG OMG!!!!! AHAHAHAHA!!!! I was totally in shock. Not only was it just one day since my interview (and they told me they had other applicants to interview *rolls eyes*), but they ding dang waited until 5:50pm on a Friday to call me?? INSANE!!! lol Looks like I will be starting on 4/13 - an entire week off!! Yay!!
So...needless to say I had an awesome Friday!!! lol :))))))))))) And thanks again to everyone for all the support ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ kiss kiss, love love, hug hug!!
