So, remember how earlier this week I was given bad news that I probably wasn’t going to move to Redding? Well, it became definite and as sad as I was that I wasn’t going to be moving up there, part of me was a tad relieved. I was definitely sad that I was going to have to move away from Whit and everyone else I know, but I really like what I do for work.
With this information it meant that my line of work would probably end soon after the Spring season finished out. I obviously want to keep working, so I started to look over at the job boards I visit and applied for a few. Low and behold, Monday afternoon I get a call, an impromptu interview and an offer for a position in Southern California. Say what?! Can we say excited?!
With some careful consideration and making sure I don’t leave anything hanging with my current position, Wednesday afternoon I accepted the position and am moving down to Southern California! Now this job is a bit different than the one I have, as I’m going to have to live out of a hotel for…a very long period of time. Moving between several of them for about, 6 months. It’s going to be hard, but I’m sure I will learn a lot and have an interesting adventure.
What about Whit and Honey? Whit and I already had things planned out for when I moved to Redding and we’re just switching them over for this new position, except as time goes on, I’ll move closer to him with the job. And Honey? Oh…living out of hotels means no pets allowed. I checked with the first one I’m staying in and can’t bring her, but I’m hoping some of the future ones will. In the mean time, she will be staying with my awesome brother Craig, whom she already likes and is comfortable with. It’s only temporary so I’ll have her back with me every second soon enough! You can bet I’m going to make my brother skype with me and the cat. No joke. And don’t laugh. Haha…ok, laugh.
Anyhow, just as one adventure was coming to a close, another one came and swept me off my feet! SoCal is my stomping grounds, though I’ll be starting a little further East then I’ve ever been, but still, it’s home! And after this position…who knows what will come my way!!!
But first, it’s time for vacation!!! Kauai here I come!!!
