Happy Boxing Day!

Mom and Matt are here and we are all feeling fat and sassy.  Chrsitmas dinner last night was delicious (we were guests at Francis’s parents’ house) and the wine flowed like water.

I hope you are all well and happy, and I sure wish I could give you all hugs in person.

Remember the phone interview I mentioned that was happening on my birthday?

Well, the phone interview went well and I was asked to come in for an evaluation day.  My activities on Friday consisted of six hours’ worth of computerized tests to determine my skills, a team exercise, and a formal interview.  It was actually quite fun, if not a little long, and I enjoyed myself.

And this morning they called to offer me a position!  I’ll be working at a call center, helping people determine their insurance coverage and assisting them with claims.  Same company that Francis works for, actually.

It doesn’t pay very much and will be pretty boring, but hey it’s a JOB.  After six months of looking, I ain’t complaining.  And I don’t have much of a commute at all: ten minutes of walking!

I still have something I want to investigate: my friend Laura’s company will be hiring someone to cover a maternity leave.  Administrative work, but my AutoCAD skills might be an asset and land me the job.  We’ll see if that pans out, but if it doesn’t, I’ll be starting February 13th at the call center.

Thanks for all your positive thoughts, everyone!
