I got a job! Actually, I got THREE of them! Too funny--I had THREE job offers yesterday. I had an interview yesterday morning--the school had actually called my friend Virginia who already HAS a job, so she gave them my name. Within two and a half hours, they called me and offered the job! Two hours later, the school where I interviewed on Tuesday called to offer me a position, and an hour after that, the school where I interviewed on Monday called!
I accepted the first offer--and at first, I was taken aback by the second and third offers. However, I thought about it, prayed on it, and I feel pretty secure in my choice. I instantly liked the English department chair and think we'll become fast friends. This school is about 40 minutes away, and I'll definitely commute for the first few months. I may look for another place to live, but having pets can make that search a difficult one, so we'll see.
I went out to lunch with Dorothy and her grandchildren--and she treated to celebrate my new job. We went to Ichiban, which is a Japanese grill. I had the teriyaki chicken with extra carrots rather than rice, which is just too filling! I've had to show my card there in order to get the extra carrots--and the last time I was there, I had to show my ID along with the card! And of course, I only ate about half my lunch--the rest is in the refrigerator for lunch today!
I was supposed to see my doctor for my annual post-surgical check, but I had to cancel because I wasn't feeling well. (I don't think it was lunch but it may have been the cherries I ate Wednesday night--they were delicious but fresh fruit sometimes gets me!) I've rescheduled for Tuesday, so we'll have an "official" total for how much I've lost in a year! I think it's around 122 pounds!
