And just like that....

...it's over. Well for now. Right after I post my saddest, most brutally depressing post ever. How ironic.

It has happened so fast, I have not even gotten used to the idea yet.

I’ve been offered a temporary, three month position doing work for a large physician practice management organization (that is what my background is). They wanted me to start immediately. And so I will. :)

It has been so long and so hard, I am having a hard time getting excited or even feeling happy. I am relieved. It is a reprieve. If they like me, the assignment could be extended.

Oh my goodness. I feel as though I can breathe again. Although it is going to take so much work to clean up the mess this debacle has left behind. But I can only take on one thing at a time.

Thank you everyone for your good wishes and prayers and encouragement. Thank you to my family and my parish family and my friends, especially Christine and Cathy, who stuck by me and endlessly offered support and love and hope.

I have so much to be grateful for.

I’M WORKING AGAIN!!!!!!!!

Oh Marie, I am just so very, very happy for you!!!

I don't know what this says about me....but when I read the title of your most recent post...my heart skipped a beat and I thought, "now what?" I am delighted to find out it is HAPPY news!

I can't wait to hear more about the job.

I'm doing a little happy dance for you. You were due some good luck and I'm sure hoping this is the start of good things for you.

I'm positively thrilled for you....

GOOD LUCK my friend........

Marie said...

Thanks everyone, Jessica, Patti, Joe and Janet!!!!!

It seems like the job is relatively uncomplicated. It is weird though being a worker bee after being the boss for so many years.

But you know what? That is just what I need, no pressure, no meetings, no listening to the CEO blow a gasket over some minor, stupid thing. Just come in, do my work and go home. And the compensation is decent.

So all around this is good. Good, good, good. GOOD!!!!!! :)

I've been reading back through your posts.. I'm truly sorry to hear that you have been having such a difficult time but very pleased that at least in the employment stakes you seem to be getting yourself back on track. What a relief! You know, it seems those prayers paid off....

Marie said...

Oh Jane, they did indeed!

I'm sure all will be well with the surgery. I'm anxiously waiting first reports from the new job.
