WAHOO!!! NEW JOB!!!

I am so very, very happy to report that I was offered a great job yesterday with a company that I have wanted to work for since I interned with them in my third year of law school!  They are in the utility industry, are located about 3 miles from where I currently live, are known to be a good company to work for, have a beautiful building, there is a lot of growth potential, and based on the interview, I like the people with whom I will be working. Oh - and the pay is really good too!  There is probably no need to say that I accepted their offer!  I will likely start the first week of January.

Last night, I celebrated in style - with my kids at their winter festival.  I have to say, I couldn't have had a better time at a 5-star restaurant.  I watched/helped them do crafts and play games, have their picture taken with Santa, and have a good time with me and with their friends. Today, despite my plans to sleep in, I woke up excited and figured I might as well be up and get the most out of my day.  I was at our outdoor Saturday Market, in the pouring rain, by about 11:00, and was happily choosing among artwork prints,  jewelry, pottery and more as I searched for Chirstmas/Thank You gifts for those that have especially supported me over this past year.  I later found myself warming up at the mall that was on my way home, and found another couple gifts I had been searching for.  (Bonus to all of this - I was on foot - did not have to drive anywhere!)

I was home by 2:30, ordered a pizza, watched a bit of a movie, took a very brief nap, then got up to sort through all the fun gifts that have been purchased for the season.  It has been a really good day, and I am happy to say it is not over, yet.  May still do some web surfing, reading, or even some writing.

I feel very grateful to finally be at the point where I was hired as a result of my legal degree and experience. Finally time to start putting the knowledge and skills to work.
