WHEW! What a week!!!

Ok, here's the rundown:

  1. Job falls in my lap on Tuesday. Since I had not heard from the company that I *REALLY* wanted to work for, I took this other job. They wanted me to start on Wednesday.
  2. Start on Wednesday and by lunchtime, I realized that I was in WAAAAAAAAAAY over my head!!!! That same afternoon, the company that I interviewed with last Friday offers me the job. I explain to them that since I had never heard anything from them, I had taken another offer because I needed to work. I am so in far over my head that.....
  3. When I go to work on Thursday my heart rate is 127 and I feel an SVT attack coming on really quickly. By 11:00 I realize this job is SOOOOO not for me!!! I explain to the management that I just can't do it and that they would have to find someone else.
  4. I call Teledyne Brown to inquire whether they had filled the position and they had NOT, so they RE-OFFER me the job and immediately begin making arragements for me start on Wednesday Aug 26!!!! I felt like a million pounds was off my shoulders!!!!
  5. Exhaled and enjoyed Friday!!!

Wow ! Congratulations again! I hope this job goes better. I work for attorneys, and I know that I could never do real estate stuff - it's so complicated, and so important that everything be done exactly right - I'd go crazy.

Kristi, your new job sounds great. I'm sorry you had a rough time at the other job, but I know all too well how the mortgage/finance co work is. I don't know that I'd ever go back to it. I hope this new job brings you NO stress. That's all you need right now. Good luck on your first day tomorrow!
