I took my son to the barn with me this afternoon. My daughter is old enough to stay home by herself for a few hours and she doesn't like going to the barn. My son loves it.
We groomed both of the horses and played in the arena for awhile while Phoebe had her turn-out. As you can see, she's unsure about what's going on here, and would rather just turn her back and pretend she's not paying attention.
The developer called yesterday early evening. He'd had some investors in town, and they were a bit of a handful. That's my experience with the finance industry as well. Party hard...and then harder.
Anyway, we're meeting next week. That's the plan at least. I have mixed feelings. No doubts that this is what I'm going to do, but a sincere desire to see into the future and know how it's going to turn out. Unfortunately, all I can go on is my gut; which tells me that this is the right path to take.
Although I didn't like it at first, staying a temp at my company has really smoothed the way as far as introducing the idea to them that it's time to move along. If I were a full employee with benefits and the salary the position deserves, it would be more likely to lead to hard feelings. But given that they haven't offered me a full-time employee contract, they'll find it easier to swallow. They could have had me, but they dallied, and someone else swooped in.
Thank God. Once I learned my tasks, I struggle every day so stay motivated and positive. I'm very much looking forward to leaving 40 hours of paperwork a week for something where there's always a new problem to solve, path to forge, decision to make. This is going to be fun!
I'm looking forward to working with the developer. He's a serious, driven guy. He's also quite personable. I'll enjoy my interactions with him. I have a feeling he'll be a demanding client, but nothing I can't handle. My work product and my work ethic are excellent. I pick things up quickly, and in fact, am happiest when I'm challenged to learn new things and find new ways of doing things.
I have a feeling this job will lead to places I've never been before, and I'm nervous and excited at the same time. I'm spending the weekend relaxing into a new mindset. One that tells me I'm worthy of good fortune. A fun job, work that utilizes my skills and experience, and is financially successful as well. There's a lot of room to grow in this role, and I think I'm in the right place, at the right time, for me, and what I need now.
