An opportunity recently presented itself and, as often happens with opportunities; it was something that I could not resist. This particular opportunity came in the form of a job with a local community resource establishment and, despite being completely unqualified for the position; I am super-stoked about taking it.
My job duties will enable me to collaborate with other community entities and with people whom I like and respect and, it will challenge me. I think the challenge is what attracted me the most, actually.
Of course, I'll continue to keep the books at the hardware store, which, I realize, will require me to juggle my time and schedule a bit, but; I have no doubt that I can do it. The kids are somewhat less stoked about the idea but that has more to do with the perception of a sudden scarcity of home-baked cookies than with almost anything else, and, for the record; there will still be cookies, children.
Hugh is being very supportive of the change, no doubt due to the sweet benefits package that comes with the job, and, I'm feeling very zen about the fact that life as I have known it for the past four years is about to change. Again.
Of course, this is all dependent upon me passing the strident background check required by the organization (Spoiler: I don't think I'll have any problem) as well as the required drug testing (Flying colors) and health screening. If all goes well, I will start sometime in the next two weeks.
I am equal parts excited and terrified; I believe that is what they call living.
