two uteri, two mamas pregnant, AGAIN, with baby number two

wow December 21, 2007

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.

    woohooo!!!! big congrats lady! πŸ™‚ loved your comment about being the “dad” btw… i gave birth to our son, but i’m also the primary breadwinner. so many people gave me a semi-hard time about only taking the statutory 6 weeks off + 2 weeks vacation but HELLO we need my salary to pay the bills. at least our son is in my company daycare in the building….
