The Wee Little Violinists Can Go Home Now

4PM on a Friday afternoon is a dangerous time on any week of the year, but on this week in particular it’s a veritable witching hour. I feel drained like a hollow tomato and I’m greatly looking forward to having my (delicious, spectacularly amazing) husband cook dinner, mix a martini, and bake chocolate chip cookies for me.

Today should have been really crappy, full of doubt and worry, but miraculously it hasn’t been. It actually turned into a good day, which is as surprising for me as it is for you. The reason why is that my remaining job, as the Content Queen for Bottle Your Brand, has offered me full-time employment wth them starting whenever I’m ready.

So let me get this straight: I get to work full time with some of my favorite people in the world, doing some of my favorite things in the world (blogging and getting people to pay up), and they’re giving us health insurance and enabling us to pay our bills? Can you guess how quickly I accepted?

I’m completely relieved, yet still in shock because things have changed so drastically in such a short period of time. I fully realize how amazingly blessed Wes and I are that something that should have completely rocked our world has been alleviated entirely.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still going to drink a big, fat, ice-cold martini tonight (because all that stress and panic doesn’t just evaporate, you know) but instead of drinking it because I’m freaking out, I’ll be using it to toast my brand-new full-time job. Squee!

  1. -Wes, you are such a smart-aleck. The wee violinists were paid a set fee to play for the duration of my pity-party, however long it lasted. They caught a lucky break with me calling it off so soon. They’re celebrating their ee little faces off, actually.

    -Perception, Thanks so much and fear not, I’m working on my reply email to you and you shall get it very soon :)

  2. -Mrs. Higrens, Yeah, NO kidding!! Wes and I feel like we’ve got a definite deus ex machina situation going on here :)

  3. Speaking of silver linings…

    interesting to wonder if perhaps you had not been laid off from the other gig (whose links no longer deserve to appear on your website) you would have been in a position where you felt free to accept full-time employment with this other gig. In other words, perhaps the lay-off cleared a barrier for you that you didn’t realize existed.

    But, I don’t think that’s any reason NOT to be pretending you have some extra time for noveling. Or a reason not to be drinking heavily.

  4. -Dane, Yeah, no kidding. My life is so silver-lined I feel like the interior of the flagship Tiffany & Co. store. My BYB bosses have never been ambiguous about wanting me to come on full-time but we were always waiting for a good time to make the switch. The lay-off kind of gave us a good kick in the right direction. I agree, however, that this doesn't disqualify me from the right to drink booze and edit while tipsy :)
