So, as Paul Harvey used to say..."And now, for the rest of the story."
A few weeks agao, I went into see the nice lady that handles my IRA. I had some paperwork to fill out, and some of the jargon on there was a bit confusing, so I asked for her help. While I was there, she asked if I would be interested in a part time job. I didn't even think about it, I said yes. She had to talk to the other person working there, and then she said I would start in June sometime.
I left her office wondering what in the world I just did! Did I really just agree to take a part time job without talking to McD about it? I didn't even think things through. This means I can't just do as I please anymore. Shoot! I have to be responsible again!
I went home to ponder over what I had done. By the time McD got home, I had decided that it might not actually happen so I didn't need to be all worked up about it. When I told him about it he was actually pretty happy with my decision.
A week or so went by and I had to take some more paperwork in. Oh my, I looked horrible! I had just ran/walked almost 2 miles, my face was beet red, and I was wearing stinky, sweaty workout clothes. You get the picture, right? So, I walk in, go over the paperwork, and am getting ready to leave and she asks if I can start work on Wednesday.
Again, I don't think. I just said, "Yes!"
I had walked in a customer, and left an employee.
I am happy to say that my new boss is great! She knows I am in the final stages of my battle with breast cancer. She knows that I am going to a church retreat with my Granny this month, and that I go on trips with McD. She is willing to work around all of it.
Today was my third day at work. I only work a few hours, a few days a week and that is perfect for me. I am filled with doubt every morning that I head to the office. It takes a little bit of getting used to getting back in the thick of things. But I am looking forward to learning my new job. It is just doing clerical work, answering the phone, and stuff like that but, it's really all I want right now.
I have to agree with what my boss said the first day we spoke. She said, "I think you were supposed to come in here today."
So, there ya go. Now you know. I'm a working woman again.
