Good news

So I guess I will start with the sort of good but bad news.  I quit my job.  It didn't go as smoothly as I had hoped but then again I can not say that I am really surprised.  Finally had enough of the inconsistency and lack of consideration for me as a person.  I let them know my main reasons for quiting in a professional manner and like everything else leading up to this point it was met with nothing more than disrespect and hostility.  

The really good news is later on last night after I had quit, S. called me to let me know she was impressed with my interview and the great recommendations that my references gave so she would like to hire me for the job.  I start on Friday.  I am trying not to be too excited because well I won't really know how the job will go until I have worked there for a week or two as this previous job has proved.  But I can't help it I am excited.  I feel like I was very clear about the hours I was willing to work and task I would be more than happy to do as a nanny.  So at least no one can say it wasn't discussed before I was hired.  The family seems really nice though and so far it looks like we all have a lot of common interest.  So cross your fingers everyone that this is it.

I will definitely keep you all posted on how things go.  I have a good feeling about this family.  Already I feel like I can be much more relaxed and myself.

I hope you all are doing well.  My head cold is much better today.  I can breathe through my nose!!!  Woohoo!  Best of wishes to you all.


  1. Good for you! I really hope it works out this time.

  2. A bad job burdens the soul. It steals the pleasure of not being at said bad job because you dread it, and it makes the reward of money for time seem smaller. Congrats on moving on and finding something else quickly. You won't regret leaving, but you would have regret staying...

  3. I think this is great news, nowhere but up!

    1. Thanks Jen I am hoping soon. I have a good feeling about this new job and I am trying not to second guess that feeling and just go with it.

  4. Good for you on standing up for yourself. :-)

    Good luck in the new job as well, hope that it goes well for you.
