Guess What?!?!?

God has answered our prayers about me getting a job! Thank y'all for praying with us on this matter -- your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated! :o)

I saw an ad in the Classified section of our Daily Newspaper a couple of weeks ago, and submitted my resume via email. They contacted me within a week to set up the first interview (last Wednesday). I was really nervous! I haven't been to an interview in 7-8 years. :) Anyway, it went great and I told my hubby that I would really be disappointed if I didn't get the job because they seemed like great people to work with/for.

I went to the second interview last Friday, and found out that the job was mine, if I was still interested. Hello? Of course I'm interested! Hahahaha

I am now a Part-Time Medical Receptionist for a local podiatrist.

I started working this Monday, and so far, I'm really enjoying it. Right now, my schedule is all jumbled up since I'm currently "in training" -- when I start my 'regular' hours, they will be:

Mondays and Wednesdays - 8:30am - noon
Fridays - 1:00pm - 5:00pm (or whenever the last patient is done - today we left at 6:00pm)

The only down-side is that I will now have even LESS time to read/blog! :( I still haven't completely caught up with my review books (from the delay of my sister's wedding), but I'm working on 'em. I can't really complain though, since I've been trying to find a job for a couple of years now. It's a true blessing that God has seen fit to answer that particular prayer, and we are very thankful! I'll keep working on getting caught up -- that's the best I can do.

Thank you all again for your thoughts and prayers -- they mean SO much! {{hugs}}

*dancing w/you!* Yay!

Now we'll have to double up on our prayers for you, Renee. :)

I had pretty much accepted the fact that I may never find a job, when God decided to drop this one in my lap unexpectedly. What a blessing!
