Good News!

I have wonderful news! I got a job today! As some of you may know I've been searching for a job since I got to Fort Polk in early January. My job searching has finally paid off. The position with the claims office that I interviewed for several weeks ago is now mine. The office called today and asked if I could come in again this afternoon, so I did and the boss talked to me about how the position was going to be a little bit different and was I ok with that.

Basically I'm not going to be doing as much claims work, although I'll still be doing some and some front-office work. It means the pay is a little bit less, but he said after 30 days that pay would increase, so that's something I can live with and it's still more than I've ever made at a job.

I start on Thursday, so I'm will have to update on how my first day at work goes.

I just feel like a big weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Now I can finally pay off some of those pesky bills that are constantly on my mind and also save some money as well as get some things that I would like, such as a new mattress. A full just isn't cutting it for us anymore. We weren't hurting for money before, but paying off my bills was going to take awhile and now with both of our incomes that should be no problem. This job is just the answer to my prayers and I know who to thank for that! :)

I celebrated by buying myself a new Yankee candle and a Chicken McNugget Happy Meal from McDonald's.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Monday. This is the best one I've had in awhile!
