Alright... This is insane.
On Friday (2 days ago), we were here in California, and my cell phone was in the van. Unbeknownst to me, Andrea Clifford from Natures Way called around 11:00am, telling me that they were done with the 2nd-round interviews and wanted to talk to me concerning the web developer position. I got that message around 4:20. Andrea worked until 3:00, so I missed her. Well.. that wasn't good enough for me. So, I googled her, I found her, and I called her at home. She wasn't there.
I proceeded to call her 3 times. The third time was at 9:00pm, and she was tucking in her kids. She answered the telephone, and I'm sure she thought I was a telemarketer. I told her who I was, and she said she was glad i called.
She then told me a bunch of HR stuff (liike benefits 'n' stuff) and then told me they were offering me the job at the rate I had requested, which is $10,000 more per year than I make now. I just about lost it.
Anyway. I have been thinking about pretty much this all the time I've been here in California.
I just got back from church and after thinking quite a bit about it, and praying about it, I think I'm going to take it. This job is in Springville, just a couple of miles from where we live. It just is almost too good to be true. Especially since about six months ago, this exact same thing happened, but I didn't take the job. Truenorth Academy just brought my salary up. So, if I decide to take this job (which I'm 99% sure I will), I will have had a $23,000.00 raise within six months. Insane. Absolutely insane.
Anyway.... I just thought I'd let ya'll know - because I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to write much more in my journal for a bit. Sorry for the choppy post. I just had to post with the time I have.
Off to mingle with the inlaws!
Oh, one last thing. The thing that makes this decision SO hard, is leaving my current job at Truenorth Academy! I've got some good friends working there with me. It'll be hard leaving them. Yup... it sure will. Ohwell. Life changes.
