No Promotion for Me

Alas, I did not get the promotion. Must now contemplate my next move. I've been languishing at my job for four years now with no promotion, so I need to think about making a career move. Of course, with all that's going on in my life, the last thing I need is a job change to a place where I'm taking on more responsibility, learning how to be a stay-at-home-mom, and where people don't know about GH's illness. We'll see.

Frankly, I'd love to win the lottery (which I don't play) or trip over a pile of money in the street or something so that I could just stay home and focus on my kids and my husband. Must engage in some creative thinking about how that could possibly happen on our current budget.

I'm disappointed and feeling wounded and passed over. But I have babies to focus on and play with! So screw you, work!

Bummer, if I find I pile I'll send some along too! I love my baby bjorn too!

Just catching up on the last few posts- you have some very cute kiddos.
I'm sorry about the job situation. It would have been a good solution because I don't think a switch right now is such a good idea.

How is GH doing? Has he had any chemo since the babes came?

I didn't have on-line access over the four-day weekend. It was fun to come in today and catch-up on your life. Your kids look SO cute. I definitely hope you find the buried treasure or an even better (yet still understanding) job.

I'm sorry about the job. Unfortunately, moms get passed over a lot. It's wrong, but it happens (they think your first priority is the kids, and of course, they'd be right! But it doesn't mean you can't do an excellent job.)

I hope you find the job of your dreams.

So sorry to hear you did not get the job. Reading this in hindsight but thinking it might have been a good thing. As a mom of twins I know how consuming they can be nevermind what you were going through at the time.
