It was brought to my attention that I never mentioned what happened with the job offer and other things. I equally pointed out that no one asked but whatever...
I turned down the generous offer in Washington D.C. When I've thought about moving away from here I always thought it would be to a place that I love. Well, I love Montana. It doesn't necessarily have to be Helena but I don't think I'm ready to leave Montana just yet. For one thing I don't want to move further away from Glacier, my home away from home.
(I reserve the right to change my mind if a job offer comes open in Hawaii).
I have been thinking about a change though. Maybe it's time for me to move on to something else. I do like my current job and am fortunate in a lot of ways but I fear the boredom factor is setting in.
On that note, I've applied for another job, something completely different. If I'm hired it will require a move but not out of Montana - I know, I just moved but this position fell into my lap and it's an exciting opportunity so I'm going for it. Wish me luck!
Speaking of moving, the place is coming along nicely and as of right now I've finished painting the living room and the bathroom and started on the bedroom. Work has been keeping me busy long past 5:00 so the painting gets done when I have time. Plus I refuse to paint on the nights I run. I just don't feel like going up and down that ladder and then running. Call me crazy.
Yay to the handy men that have been coming in and out of my building for a couple of weeks now. The entire place is being renovated and so guys are in and out all day (Os, shut up!). So far they have helped me move furniture, unclog a sink and widened the hole for my deadbolt which didn't fit before (Os, shut up!)
Now if I could just get them to paint...
