So… I got that job. Downside: I am earning the same salary I made back in 1997 – woo hoo. Upside: I really like my boss, the people, the job and the company. I guess that’s just the way the cookie crumbles in a modern-day depression.
I had been out of work for the past 18 months, and I do need a job, so it feels great to finally be employed. But it’s bittersweet, because gone are the endless days of home renovation projects, baking, photography, blogging and hanging with my boys.
I start my work day late enough that I am still able to take my [precious] Morning Walks with the dogs, but I will once again have to figure out how to balance work with my passions.
