I got the job!
They hired me immediately after the interview. They hugged me.
I am starting in mid January. Three 10 hour days, and 5 hours of paperwork I must do on my days off. Plus a 2 hour meeting on one of my days off.
It’s good. It means we won’t foreclose on our house. So yay. And when I added up the vacation, sick time and holidays, it was 39 days total. That is 8 weeks of paid time off per year, plus full health benefits (for me only, but still), and I make my own schedule, working whenever I want as long as I get the job done.
But holy shit. I am starting a full time job in January. I am so the dad all of a sudden.
