a good news day!

First off, I got a call back from the vets office where I dropped off my resume last Thursday (or, Friday? I don't actually remember). I was informed that the women I needed to speak with was on vacation til Monday...at which point she called to set up an interview. I made sure to let her know this time (since I had an interview lined up about a year ago, but was unable to follow through because of my current job...long boring story...) that if she had specific days/hours in mind, I would like to know what they were BEFORE going any further. She told me, we set up a meeting at 3 pm today, so after work and lunch I was off to interview at the vets office just down the street from where I currently work. I was more excited than nervous, since I actually know a lot of the people who work there as regular customers at the bagel shop! I heard, 'Hi, Jen' several times while filling out the formal application. It was nice. So after interview and tour, she told me she leaving for vacation Thursday and would call me before then. There were a lot of parallels between this and my Nantucket vet experience. For one, the only bottoms I had to wear that were anywhere near 'interview-worthy' were the same ones I wore when I applied for the Nantucket job. Secondly, I found out recently that one of the vets from Nantucket has been working at this other place since February! And thirdly, just as with the Nantucket job, just hours after the interview I received the call officially inviting me to join their team! I am taking two weeks to inform my boss that my schedule will need to change (which puts us just after Labor Day), but I will be training starting the first Tuesday of September ...which will make for a nice long day starting with a 5:30am -1pm shift at the bagel shop going straight into a 2-6 shift at the vets office! The really cool thing is that it is only part-time with just two days, but they are 11 hour shifts (with an hour for lunch) so I can still get enough time in at the bagel shop that I probably won't get fired!
In other news, between work and my interview today, I checked the ol' emails, per usual, to find someone had put my latest journal in her treasury! This is only the second I've been in, and I am so touched when others find my things lovely enough to share with the rest of the world. Especially excited about the fact that I just listed it LAST NIGHT!!
Here's the etsy treasury link: look at it and love it!
And while you're there, you should totally check out IsMoreNa's etsy site...totally adorable jewelry!
(Sorry, posting quickly, then off to the store for spinach...no pictures of specifics)


  1. That is fantastic!!! I'm so excited for you! Maybe you'll get over your dislike of giving shots and holding animals for the vets. Acceptance comes with practice, I find. That's so neat about your journal, too! I treasure you! Hope you've enjoyed your spinach. *~_^*

  2. Congrats! How exciting! I hope you love your new job.
