I've been busting to share the news since I got the offer a week ago, but I had to tell the boss at my part-time gig first. It's officially official - offer is signed, sealed and delivered to my brand new company.

Six months after I found out I was losing my job, four months since I've actually been unemployed, hundreds of resumes, dozens of cover letter revisions, one ridiculously lame job fair and only two interviews, I am finally back in the full-time game. And you want to hear the funny part? I didn't even apply for the job!

That's right, they found me. Called me out of the blue to ask if I was interested in a job. Everyone keeps asking how they got my resume, but to be honest, I really don't care. I like to think God just dropped this job from the sky straight into my lap. And let's just say, He made it worth the wait.

I honestly didn't realize just how much I was missing my old job until I got into the interview and started talking 'business' again. It was like a little piece of me came alive inside. I walked out of that interview (2.5 hours, ya'll!) happier than I've been in months - I felt all lit up inside!

The job is in Purchasing but in a totally different industry than I was in before. It's a little daunting to think about learning a whole new industry, but I love a good challenge and this one will definitely be a doozy. They were actually very interested in me because I come from a different industry - the VP told me he expects me to 'shake things up' in a big way. How's that for a little motivation right out of the gate?

So now I'm wrapping up my last few days at the part-time job, plotting how to get the most out of my last few days as a Lady of Leisure and preparing to start a whole new adventure. One that I hope will be worth the wait.

That is FANTASTIC!! Sometimes, the best opportunities really do just land in your lap. :-)

Do lots of fun stuff on your last few days of freedom - the movies, mani/pedi, and lots of shopping!
