Wow. This is weird. I don't know if I"m happy or sad. My boss told me last night he wanted to meet with me today early. Okay. Well, our payroll/credit lady announced her retirement wednesday. Well, sprung it on him. SHe is done April 25th. He met with the board last night for three hours and wants to remodel the accounting department. He no longer wants to do much with regards to finance, he wants to take the role as President and be more hands off except for sales. He wants to make the Controller position full time, and then hire someone under there to do credit and outsource payroll totally. He was offering me the job. Of course, I declined. I just am not ready to work about 50 hours a week with two young kiddies. He was visibly upset, I felt awful. He understood and said he'd miss me and was really sorry that it was so hasty. I'll stay for awhile, finish up open items and assist him in hiring and training my FT replacement. Then I'm a sahm again. Wow, it's not even 7 am and I'm deflated. I have a lot to do today, I need to kick myself in the butt and get it in gear (ds's party tomorrow), but this is such a shock. I didn't expect to find myself without a job after that meeting. I'm glad he did it pre-work hours for everyone else. That way, no one got to see me cry, LOL. I am sad. I loved that job. And I loved the people there. But I don't love it enough to spend 50 hours a week there.......... it's bittersweet I guess. Of course, if something PT ever presents itself, I'll go back to work in a heartbeat, that's just the kind of person I am. But for now, I guess it's summer 100% with my boys!

Don't worry, enjoy the summer and I'll sure if you are interested, you'll find something great that's PT and fits your schedule. But it IS a shock, I'm sure.
