It's Official...New Job!

Well, now that I've told my boss, I can tell the rest of the world. haha Good thing I told him this morning because word was on the street by afternoon. Guess that's how it goes in a small town!

I have accepted a position in the office at Best Metal Finishing in Osgood. It's a fairly small plant. You can look 'em up on the web if you're interested. The sister company is Ohio Rod in Versailles. Both are owned by Elgin Fasteners.

I'm excited about the new job opportunity. I love the hours, just wish I had 5 days and not 4! I'm going to keep working at the golf course on Fridays for now (and still do payroll/billing/work scheduling) to help make up the small pay difference. The good news is that I also have insurance now! And 2 weeks paid vacation! :) I think I'm going to like working at Best Metal. I know a few people who work there in the shop and I know the general manager's family pretty well (just not him). haha

And so another journey begins!

Weight Loss Update #8

Last night we weighed in before our big guest event...and I lost 0.4 pounds. haha Not much, but hey, it's still a loss! :p

I am also on the final week of the C25K program. I haven't decided if I'm going to do this one over before moving up or go ahead and move to the 10K program. I have super proud of myself for running each week and for actually being able to do it! ha I never thought I'd last this long and now I don't want to quit!! :)

From Good to Bad to Worst

The day started off with so much promise.....

The weather has been absolutely perfect. Sun is shining. Cooler temps with a nice breeze.

Then I see status updates from 2 of my cousins and my heart sinks as I already know what I'll hear when I pick up the phone...but I dial mom at work. She tells me the news I feared. My great-uncle, Cletus, passed away this morning. That takes me to sad face #1. Mom tells me to text Jenna and let her know. I know Jen is out enjoying a leisurely breakfast this morning due to later work time and her apartment being renovated. She of course calls and that's when the reality hits me a little more and I have a good cry. Ugh.

I was really hoping to hear from the interview lady at a job I had applied for....I interviewed Sunday night (yes, that's how badly she wanted to meet me!). Went to the hospital and did a pee test on Monday night after work for their pre-employment drug screening. Not 20 minutes after I had tweeted about waiting to hear from her with great anticipation....I got the ding email. It was so impersonal. Sad face #2. Another call to mom. More tears.

This day really sucks.
