Girls, girls, girls!
There has been quite a lot happening in the last one week.
The good news first. For no matter what the uncertainties, change is always good. Especially when you have been longing, yearning, praying for it with all your heart for the last one year almost.
I have landed a new job.
But the going's not all good. For every pro, there seem to be a con.
Pro -Its in the same function- sales.
Con- But its in a whole new, emerging field. Now- when it emerges fully it could either be for better or for worse. Being eternally optimistic, I choose to believe the former.
Pro- Its dealing with the same people I have been interacting with,
Con- But from a different address. A whole world away from the current one. We were almost thinking of shifting houses, to be honest. But we've decided to wait and watch...
Pro- There's only going to be a skeletal sales force in my company. Just one other person.
Con- There's only going to be a skeletal sales force. Just me and this significant other, in an office peopled with a large team of another business within the same organisation. Now this other person HAS to be someone I get along with. HAS to, HAS to, HAS to!
I am not normally skeptical about my abilities to gel with others, but my experience in my last (current for this one week more) organisation has left me respecting the ability of colleagues to make your life miserable.
Pro- There's obviously more money.
Con- With more responsibilities too, which will gradually come my way, never mind that I have requested to handle just B'lore for the time being. While I am kind of looking forward to that too, I sincerely hope that by then, my home will be in a better state of management that it currently is. By that I mean the good old maid, nanny, playmate for Sonny boy of course.
I thought Saturdays were a working day and was hugely depressed even in the middle of the euphoria at landing a good job, finally.
BUT- yesterday, when negotiating with my boss-to-be on my joining date, I found out that Sat's are off here too. I could have hugged him at that moment. But since I couldn't, I hugged the good Lord tight, tight,TIGHT in my mind. Like my husband says, now that she knows she has the weekends off, she's willing even to commute to the moon and back on the week days.
Now all that remains is to get started and keep going. Forward, enthusiastically, happily.
Please, send Up a good word for me, all of you girls out there. I know you all will, thank you for the same, but still....
Now some other news- my Mom's got her cataract operation fixed for next week. So I'm off for the weekend. I may be off the whole of next week too. Please send up a prayer for her too. I don't expect anything to go wrong, especially as she's had her other eye done, and there were absolutely no problems then. But still.... Thank you for that too, girls.
So, for now, its happy holidays for me, for a week.
Meanie hubby persists in needling me- no internet for a week, what will you DOOO???
I know what I'll DOOOO.... I'll miss all of YOUUUU!
