Finally...

Well, after much waiting and keeping quiet, I can finally announce that I got a new job!! I no longer have to talk about toilet paper and paper towels everyday or look down everytime I walk in a building to see what kind of mats they get. That's right, my days at Cintas are over forever after Friday!

I got a pharmaceutical sales job and I am just so excited about it! It is with an awesome company with amazing benefits!

How did this happen? Well, I returned to work and walked into a bad situation that I just didn't know if I could deal with and a situation that I DEFINITELY did NOT want to deal with. I did LOTS of praying (and so did many of you) and tried to be very optimistic about my situating because I knew God was not going to throw anything my way that He didn't think I could handle. Well, I worked and did my appointments and recruiters started calling. Long story, short, I went to an interview and got an offer I could not refuse. God ALWAYS has a plan. It was the answer to my prayers for many reasons. Don't get me wrong, I know that I am going to be working my butt off, but it will all be worth it. I will actually be appreciated as an employee. No overnights! My territory is small with the most time in my car will be an hour. I am SO excited!! YAY!!!

My last day at Cintas will be this Friday and I am taking next week off then I will be starting my new job on March 26th. I will be doing home study for two weeks and then I will go away to training in New Orleans for three weeks. The three weeks will be the hardest because I won't get to see Tatum and Antonio everyday. However, they will fly me home the second weekend which happens to be my birthday weekend! Then I have to go back for one more week and I will be home. It will all be worth it in the end. I know that Antonio is going to take great care of Tatum. He is already an AWESOME help and they will be fine. It is me that I am worried about. I already plan to do lots more scrapbooking next week in my free time so that I can take my book with all of Tatum's pictures in it with me to training. I also told Antonio that he better send me picture messages on the phone so I could see Tatum. I am just scared that Tatum is going to start sitting up or something while I am gone and I am going to miss one of her BIG firsts.

Anyway, that's my big news! When I returned to work I felt like i was going through a Quarter Life Crisis and now I feel like I just landed my DREAM JOB at 25! What a roller coaster these past few weeks have been!
