Breaking Radio Silence

Hey, sorry I’ve been away so long. I just felt like I didn’t have anything to say for a while and just needed a bit of a break. Two big things happened while I was on my break….

Most exciting news first, I had a job interview last Friday and yesterday was offered the position. I actually did 2 interviews on Friday (same agency, same job just in two different divisions). I interviewed for the job I was there to interview for and the interviewer asked me if I was willing to do a second interview in a different division. Of course I agreed (b/c it would be stupid to not do a second interview while I was already there). Funny too b/c I was asked the same exact questions in both interviews. I left with a really good feeling that I would be offered one of the jobs (several clues doing the interviews) and then yesterday got the call offering me the position. I’m trying not to get too excited yet though b/c I have to wait on a formal salary offer. I would start out making less than what I make now (which I knew when I applied for the position) but I can’t take a significant cut in pay. They’ve assured me that they can get pretty close to what I’m making now so hopefully the formal salary offer reflects that. Otherwise, I’ll have to pass up the position.

And equally exciting but not as recent news…my sister is having a baby!! I actually knew about this a few weeks ago but kept quiet. My sister has been trying to have a baby for a few years now. She has PCOS and they’ve done several rounds of hormone shots and one round of IUI. Oddly enough, she got preggers in the month when they did nothing (well, not nothing but no hormone shots/treatments). She got pregnant the week after her and her husband came out to DC to visit so Stephen and I should be given all the credit. Not really but we are thinking of marketing a Fertility trip to DC business…wonder how much we could charge? I’m excited to be an Aunt!! I’m going to be the coolest Aunt ever! (My step sisters have kids but this is different.)

Other than that, just the everyday workout, run, work, sleep routine. I’m ready for warmer weather…I’m so tired of running in the cold and having to bundle up.

I really hope they come through with a fantastic offer for you!!! i am so excited for you!!! This could be the "out" you were looking for!!!

AND YAY for becoming an aunty!!! I LOVE being an aunty!! I think it has really prepared me (MORE so) for having babies myself.

I have been told that a LOT of people get pregnant when they stop "trying" (you know, just the old natural way!)
