Yes, just like that, I had a change of heart this morning. I got to looking at my many closets of “office” clothes and shoes and realized I’m not ready to part with all of them!!! How could I empty out my closets, selling what I could on eBay, garage sale-ing the rest…donating what I couldn’t sell???
Back-up, give it some more serious thought…let’s face it, I’ve worked in the legal field too long to not carry on an argument with myself and end up doing a complete turn-around in my decision making process.
Couple all that with the fact that the damned attorney that offered me for the “firm” job offer of last week, still wants me. He called this morning while I was out sipping my coffee on the patio in the cool, morning breeze…the job offer was still on the table and he wanted to know where I stood on it…and if I was going to take it, when did I want to start.
After listening to the voicemail, I took a moment…took a deep breath and called him back…accepted the job and told him I would like to start on Monday, August 30th. Done deal, he was thrilled, I was in a bit of shock as the decision came from left field…then I called the house cleaning company and thanked the gal for taking the time to interview me and put it all out there for me, but I didn’t feel like it was time for me to make that change…financially, I’m not there yet.
And that my friends, is the end of my spinning and whirling…a definite ending date to my “unemployment” vacation of sorts. I have declared my decision and I’m sticking to it.
I feel disappointed, but relieved…the reality of how much my unemployment benefit each week comes to had me very well aware of how much I could be making and how much I wouldn’t be making if I went in another direction…for the time being, it is the right decision for where I’m at in my life.
Now, I can get my ass in gear, enjoy the last few days of my “vacation” and head into the office environment come Monday morning!!!
Maybe, just maybe I’ll start getting my “mojo” back…I’ve got a session scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday) late-morning, so that will be fun…maybe I’ll schedule a couple of more sessions before having to resolve to the after 5:00 schedule of play-times.
It’s time to get out and get my yard work done…I can’t pass up being outside with this delightful northerly breeze blowing to keep me from getting too hot…
So, the voice of reason came over me in the form of my clothes and shoe fetish taking a stand and making me aware of all that I would be wasting…yep, I’m crazy!!!! (Aren’t we all??????)
