...had a VERY busy first day back at work, but I managed to slog through the mound of stuff that piled up on my desk while I was away and am very proud of the achievement!
...was thrilled to find a full size desk in my new cubicle! I had been expecting a mid-sized desk at best and there I was staring at my shiny new desk with so much space that I didn't know what to do with it all!
...drum roll please...found out this afternoon that I got my FULL TIME PERMANENT JOB!!! I am over the moon and can't quite believe it yet, the reality of it is going to take a while to settle in I think, but WOW what a great early birthday present to finally achieve one of my long-time goals :o) Nothing like a dream come true every now and then! Thank you so much to all of you who have been saying prayers and sending positive thoughts my way through all of this, it really has meant the world to me :o)
...spread the good news around as fast as I could. I called my Sweetheart first and left him a message, then I called my mom, then my grandma, then my dad, then my friend who cares for my animals while I'm away, then put it on Facebook and then told my other grandma when she called me and now I'm waiting for my Sweetheart to connect to Skype so we can celebrate together long distance :o)
