slow down...i wanna get off this ride

For the past 12 years, I had been an at-home mom.  Interpreting gigs here and there...a stint in the homeschooling world...time as a noon aide.

Easy peazy.

Then...BOOM!  I became a Material Handler for Menlo Worldwide Logistics (via Select Staffing, aka Shithead Staffing).

I put in my resume directly with Menlo to become a real live Menlo card-carrying employee.  It looked really good.

2 weeks ago, my hubs told me that his friends at GM (well, my friends too) asked for him to send in my resume immediately for a possible contract position for GM.

I said, "Um, okay.  Can't wait...another interview."  Yes, I was excited.


Wednesday around noon my hubs texted me at work, telling me that he heard I would be called for an interview sometime later in the day.

Again, total excitement.


At 2 p.m., I did received a phone call, but not for an interview.


to tell me...

they wanted to hire me...

 on the spot...

off  my resume.

Holy. Shitballs.

So, as of 11 April, 2013, I became a Material Analyst/Forecaster for General Motors via Aerotek.  Big pay increase, holidays, paid vacation, etc. etc.

The only thing I hope for now is to find out exactly what in the world I will be doing.

I am really really going to miss my co-workers at Menlo. They are some of the most amazing people I have ever worked with, and I can only hope that my new co-workers will be at least 50% as cool as the ones I have now.

So, I feel like this:

I need this ride to slow the hell down.

Just for a moment.


Peace, Love and (just call me Weezy, cuz I is moving up!) Zombies \IiiI

You'll slowdown when you are dead, for now go fast and enjoy the work ;-)

And don't even think this is going to excuse you from coming to say hello. No, ma'am, you have people who need to read your rant and wisdom (and by 'people' I mean 'me').

I'm happy you have a stable job, luv. I do hope that your new co-workers are even better than the old ones!

P.S. I thought of you when I joined March Monster Madness!

Did I write "March"? I meant May ;-(

Super exciting Penny! A little jealous too. A job with a paid hour lunch - I'm assuming - and stuff. I will hope and hope and pray for you that your coworkers are super cool, like you will make friends with them cool.
