Big News...I've Been Keeping A Secret

Okay, many of you went through the whole interview process with me for my new job back in August.

What I failed to mention was - the job was temporary through the beginning of 2006.

I was in denial. I admit it. The money was so much better. The hours, too. I just didn't want to admit that it could end and I would, once again, go back to the drudgery of part-time and low pay.

I have been working my ass of in this department and I think that they like me and would have liked to have kept me, but the person I replaced is definately coming back from maternity leave.

I started to panic around November 15th.

Awesomely enough, my temporary boss gave me permission to go ahead and interview for any job openings - with the express purpose of getting me a similar job and reducing any time that I had to spend at my old position.

Thank God.

I interviewed for a HR position that actually fit my personality and pay grade needs a few weeks ago. Then, I made it to the second interview.

This weekend I had a dream that I got the job but forgot to ask what the pay would be. I have been worried about this because the range for the new job is starts slightly lower than where I am now. In my dream, when I finally asked about pay, I was told that I would get paid $2.00 an hour.

Nightmare city.

Guess what? I got the job! I found out yesterday!

And never fear - I actually get a raise when I transfer over....

Whoopee! Smile!

Merry Christmas to me!

So you forgot to mention the temp part, huh? Isn't it always in the details?

I guess it's a sign of growing up, if not maturity, when all you want for christmas is a better job :)
