I wanted to post this earlier, but I was busy.
I am, as of noon today, officially unemployed.
And I no longer live in Northern Virginia during the week.
Thank God (and I’m not being flip or vulgar…I really mean Praise Be to God for getting me out of there).
Don’t get me wrong. The job was great, good working conditions, loved the work, outstanding co-workers. If the job had been pretty much anywhere else in the world (with a few exceptions) I’d have loved it. Too bad such a good job is wasted on the DC area.
Anyway, I’m pretty sure I’m going to enjoy the new job just as much and I know that none of this was coincidence.
BTW: Have I mentioned that the act of losing my old job…the one I lost back in November…has ultimately resulted in me making about $11k more a year with the only period of actual joblessness being this-coming week…which was planned?
In this employment environment, I just don’t see how that can be attributed to anything other than divine intervention.
Who’da thunk it a few months ago when I couldn’t even get an interview and was starting to seriously consider the ramifications of bankruptcy and foreclosure.
I give all the credit to God.
Not to mention the fact that the job situation worked out perfectly so that I’d have a week off on the very week that it’s important for us to get back to Indiana (for a legal proceeding related to my sister…which I’ll explain later).
Coincidence? I think not.
Anyway, I digress as usual. We’re leaving for Indiana early tomorrow morning so I should have an update on Yolanda’s condition for you in the next few days.
Thanks again to everyone for the prayers.
