Still Waiting

February 21st, 2015 at 04:51 am

No news on the job yet. I spoke to my friend on Thursday, who said she would make sure her husband (the middle man for the job) gave me an update by Friday afternoon so I wouldn't be left hanging all weekend. I didn't hear anything. I will send a quick email Monday afternoon if I don't have an update by then.

In the meantime, I am going to finish the pre-licensure course and take the test by Monday. I just hope the money and time invested in it was worth it. I have a (bad)habit of being a worrywart and tend to think negatively when I am left hanging. I am trying to stay positive and keep in mind I was sought out; I didn't go looking for this position. Of course, now that I know all about it; I want the job! Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Holding My Own

As far as finances, they aren't bad, but not a lot of progress has been made. The minimum debt payments are being paid and I am trying to save at least $26.50 a week (this is equivalent to the 52 week challenge evened out). Each time I try to make a long term plan for the year something changes.

The latest is a possible major life change. An old teacher friend of mine lives in the Florida panhandle. Her husband's condo management company is looking for a manager and they thought of me. They think this would be a great fit for me. I sent my resume and he likes it and is meeting with his boss this week. It's serious enough that they thought I should start the pre-licensure course (refundable if hired). The pay is around 65 k with full benefits. I would go down asap and hubby and son would stay here until our apartment lease is up at the end of July. It also allows my son to finish the school year. I should know more by early next week.

I hated living in south Florida for four years, but I do like the panhandle area and think I could handle it this time around.
