Job!

I finally found a job! Yay! I'm happy and very relieved. I am working at Family First Credit Union. Grant worked there for a few years before he left for Kentucky and enjoyed it so I'm excited. I interviewed for it on the 12th (two weeks ago.) They were very excited to find out I was Grant's sister-in-law and everyone commented on how much I look like Taryn. (Old picture but it is one where you can see us both well.)
I thought it went really well so it was just a waiting game. It was a three day weekend so I wasn't expecting to hear anything for a few days. Then on Tuesday morning they called. At first I thought it was a no based in tone of voice but I was wrong! I was so excited! They asked if I could start that day. So there it is. I have been doing training the past week and a half and I will be doing it for three more days and then I'm on my own. So far I am really liking it. So that is the job update for now. Also, I was inspired by Taryn and started making a dinner schedule and shopping on Saturday for the next week. It has only been two weeks but I love it. No more running to the store 3 or 4 times a week and we have cut back on eating out because we can't decide what to make. It has been helpful when I work in the afternoon so I can just plan for leftovers that night.

Yeah! I'm still so excited for you :) And good work with the dinner thing...keep it up, because I got busy and started slacking and I hate when I'm not planned and organized. It really is a great system! Saves a lot of $$$ too :)
