Tuesday turmoil

I am completely unable to comprehend time recently, just so you know. It seems the less I have scheduled to do, the more I am running around consistently, but actually doing nothing. When on earth would I have the time to work right now, had I not quit my ever-so-irritating, too-many-chiefs-and-not-enough-Indians type of job? I cannot remember the last time that I just sat down. And watched tv, or read my book, or did nothing. Even praying has become a hit a miss thing with me...(sorry God).

Trav and I are having a great time together, but it has been such a whirlwind, we won't know it until she is back home.Yesterday, we ran from here to there, then back to there, then to the ICS, then home, and hell it was after ten pm when we got here. And we returned to a lovely MESS of the worst kind, as CrazyDog is having stomach issues and how great is that, when she cannot go out without a leash and a navigator? It was not fun, to say the least, but it might explain what we had previously chalked up to even more crazy than normal...well, that and the current full moon, which has always affected her.

I think I will be working for UGA. It is an insurance organization, one that I have high regard for, and a pay structure like no other. The position was offered to me yesterday, assuming that they find I am not a convicted serial killer, and since we all know I have NOT been convicted, there should be no problem...teehee. It is strictly sales, and I have been selling something most of my life, but it's a do or die kind of job. That does not worry me, but the financial is something to consider, since there can be little planning in the early stages. I will have to go back and get my Iowa life and health license (oh NO, more studying....), but I have had all of the state insurance licenses at one time or another, so that will not be a big deal. I still have my credit life and health license, as there had to be one licensed agent in the dealership to sell the various insurance products that we offered. The problem is, it will be about two weeks until I can begin their training, (thank heaven that I don't have to go out of town for that), and then it will be at least another week or two before the money starts coming in, so I just have to figure out how to keep going financially until then. But, where there's a will, there's a way. I like sales, I like making my own hours, I like most of the details about the job in general. It will require some hard work now, but in about ten years, holy crap - I might even get to retire early. I feel very lucky to have had it offered to me, and the division manager that did was highly complimentary, and I needed that right now...so, I have to let them know by today...and my answer will most likely be yes. In the meantime, I have signed back on for a bit of a gig at the ICS, so that I can help take a little pressure off of Craig, running that place will make you old waaaaay before your time.

Today, Trav and I make the trek back to our mom's town, another two hours in the car. Ugh. Then we are going to hurry home so that we can spend a little time wandering all the shops here, we haven't had a chance to do that yet. Unless you count Target, and my sister does love her some Target...

Happy Tuesday!!!!

Congrats on the job! If it is something you're familiar with and can do..and the pay is great...wth... go for it!

Yeah, you sure are on a roll now. This sounds like something familiar enough to you to feel comfortable with. I have no idea how people sell insurance, but those who are successful do quite well. Good work, woman!

Have fun today. I sure wish I could hang out with my sister! And the job...sounds like you've made your decision. You'll do great at it. I hope it's what they say it is. Like you pointed out before, everyone is showing their best sides at the interview table.

Mary said...

Enjoy the day with sister. Good to have a job in the basket. It will be more familiar to you than the last job. Hope it is all they say but if not, you know what to do.

you know what....you even SOUND relaxed as you're talking about this job....so maybe this is IT...the ONE. I'm so glad and hope that the commute to and from is a short one. You've had enough long commutes to last a lifetime! Thinking of you and give your sis a hug from me too. Oh...and send me a brownie batter blizzard if you have those....(they are YUMMY). LOL. Enjoy all these new things in your life...things are lookin' up. Love, Charlotte.

Fantastic news on the new job!! I'm totally with you on the financial end. Commission based pay can be a feast or famine kind of proposition, and THAT my friend can be damned nerve wracking! That said, I am sure you will excel mightily ;)
