Wow, good things can happen

I got a job offer yesterday. Though I was expecting it, I'm still kind of floored; I always expect things to not work out for me. I am accepting. The commute isn't the best, and the job itself is just doing technical support, but it is a growing tech company with plenty of room for advancement. I am of course terrified that I am making the wrong decision because the position itself isn't that exciting and my last two jobs, which were both completely horrible, I had some hesitations. But I don't have hesitations about the company itself, which is good, and the position is a good one for learning their product back and forth. Plus I get my old insurance back, which means I'll be covered for IVF again. Since I will be answering calls, it's a pretty strict schedule and I'm not sure how they cope with doctors' appointments, I'm not sure how easy it will be to make my myriad appointments. But the RE clinic is in the same town as my new office, so I'm sure I can mostly figure it out -- at least for the next 6 months or so. And we won't be doing IVF sooner than 6 months, if we do it at all.

We are leaving for Las Vegas before 7am tomorrow morning. I hope that it is a good get away. I am looking forward to just being away from home and from Boston for a while. We are going with people from T's work and I get along with them really well, so it should be a good time, as long as people don't constantly talk about their new babies. I probably won't post until I get back.

My next blood test is a week from today and I am still bleeding.

Go Pats! (I know most people hate them and want them to lose, but I'm a native New Englander! 19-0!)

While the new job may not seem exciting, at least is will be low-ish stress, right? And good benefits, and you sound pretty positive about it.

Have a wonderful time in Vegas! Hit the slots for me!

Yay for the beginning of good things! I've often heard people say the company is more important than the actual job. Perhaps especially so if you're looking to advance?

Have fun in Vegas!

So glad to hear your good news. Hope this is just the first of many good things that will be happening to you in the near future.

Congrats on the new job. Don't worry about the adoption paperwork. It is not as bad as it might look at first. We just started the adoption process in December of last year and finished the paperwork for the home study. Now we are waiting to be assigned to a social worker. Let me know if you have any questions.
