Like I said a bit ago SO has a start date. What’s even better is that he’s not getting the position he was given. He was going to be a floater at first picking up hours that needed filled at multiple locations. Turns out a new employee never showed up and he’s getting that spot. It has set hours that are prefect for him. He’ll have no issue spending time with the kids. It’s also at the location that we wanted him to be at working with the people he wanted. Come to find out his direct boss is the practically his best friend. I really like this guy and think we owe him a lot considering how much he helped SO out after he and BM first split.
I also had an interview yesterday that went really well. Pretty much promised the job pending my background check and drug test which will both come back clean. I’m over qualified but that’s what I wanted. It’s a complete change from what I’ve been doing. I’ll work one on one with one client, no more massive groups where I feel hopeless and frustrated. I’m really happy at how it’s turn out. Hours that are much better suited for me also and plenty of options for picking up over time. Only down side is it’s a MAJOR pay cut.
SO and I are talking and getting a good idea of what our new cost of living will be. There are a lot of decreases but yes still a lot of unknowns. I think we can handle the pay cut but if need be there is a possibility of me taking a position like the one I’m in now I just really don’t want to do it. I don’t want to continue what I’m doing if there is any way out. I was speaking to my mother and she agrees with me. If we can afford it this will very likely help with my overall mental health. I’ve gotten very cynical and depressed with my current work environment. It feels hopeless and pointless. This new job allows me to use the education I got in the way I wanted.
