just a quick update…after 2 hours of interviews with 7 different people, i was offered the job. yipee!

BUT….i would have to take an enormous pay cut if i were to accept. and i mean enormous. like 10k less than i have been making. and it’s a 45 minute commute each way.

SO…i am going to turn down the job. hubby is very supportive and told me that i should as well, as i am worth more than they can offer and i would be selling myself short if i accepted. my dad agreed with that as well. i’m very proud of myself for getting this far, though, but do feel bad that i have to turn down the offer. the man i would be working for is so kind and i know i would be helping him out a lot, but there are more cons than pros.

i did have another interview on tuesday for a different firm that is only a 15 minute commute. the folks there said they would be making decisions on wednesday of next week, so we’ll see how that pans out.

thanks to all of you for your support! it really means a lot!

i finally crashed when i got home this afternoon and took a 2 hour nap that felt like 5 minutes. i had set my alarm so i wouldn’t sleep too long and thank god i did or else i’d still be sleeping!

we’re heading out of town tomorrow morning for the cabin where there is no internet or cell access. it will be great. we won’t be back until next thursday. i can’t wait to get away. and it will be much cooler than it has been here. tonight there are even thunder storms. i hope the last a little longer so we can enjoy them as well.

hubby’s folks will be stopping by to take care of the kitties while we’re gone. i’m gonna miss those little buggers so much. maybe i can practice my staring contest skills so i can beat atty next time.

    Have a blast at the cabin!

    It sounds like you’re doing the best thing by turning down the job. And just think – you have all that interview experience to draw on now! =)

    It’s all about striking the right balance. If it didn’t feel right, then it was not to be!
