Big Changes

Well....now it's official and I can post about it. My tenure at ConocoPhillips is over. I loved working there, it was a great company--with even better people that I worked with, but I couldn't stand the thought of going back full time. I have found a CPA firm (very small, just one guy) that wanted someone flexible. It truly was God's hand working in our lives. I prayed about it from the moment she was born, I didn't think I would ever want to be a stay at home mom, but something came over me, and it's all I could think about. We couldn't afford for me to stay home with no income, but I didn't have to go back full time. I have always had my resume on monster.com (which is how I got on at Conoco, actually), but I always delete the emails about jobs. One day in late August, I just happened to read one of the emails, which are usually just headhunters. However, I saw an add that looked like a real company. I checked out what they were looking for, and it was a flexible CPA. So, I emailed Bill my resume. He emailed me back the next morning and asked for me to call. I talked to him that afternoon and went in the next morning and interviewed. He had talked to my references by that the next morning and offered me the job!!!! I actually also found great child care. One of my dear friends from church, who has a 22 month old, was looking to make some part time income, and I just happened to ask her about it at the right moment I think. She has been watching Cara for a few weeks, and it's been great. My boss is so flexible, he says she can come in with me whenever I need her to, which she did the first day, and this past Tuesday when Sterling was sick. I really am blessed, couldn't have asked for a better deal!

PS, one of Eric's band kids hit his truck today in the parking lot!!!! Goodness, one more thing to do!
