So yesterday I was waiting.
Am I pregnant? Nope. Sorry, Bridget. It was also not the day hubby wrote entrance exams. And nor was it about the fact that I was freaking out about leading cell group last night. Which I was, btw.
Nope - I was waiting for confirmation on a job offer.
If you're disappointed, I'm sorry. But this is a big deal for me. I work in a three-person company, so me leaving is 33% of the staff saying cheers.
Furthermore, hubby has just resigned to start studying, so now we're both in flux.
AND... my boss is nearly eight moths pregnant.
My timing could not be worse.
Then again... I'd be working a half day and earning nearly the same salary, and would be able to use the new company's infrastructure (Internet, telephones etc) to freelance from their offices in the afternoon, giving me the scope to start my own business.
Where else would I find the opportunity to start freelancing with the security of a regular salary and full permission to win my own personal clients?
Eish. So much to think about. I hate disappointing my boss and my co-worker, whom I love dearly. But at the same time, opportunities like this don't often fall into one's lap.
So I spoke to my boss this morning. She is, obviously, not so happy. But she's been nice about it, despite her own worries, which I really appreciate. Telling her was my biggest stress - I went through almost half a bottle of Rescue Remedy before broaching the subject.
Now I feel like a big, wobbly lump of jelly.
I've suggested that I work for my current company in the afternoons for the first few months, just to give them a bit of a cushion, but none of us is really sure whether that will work.
And getting my own clients is scary. So if you know of anyone in need of the services of a freelance journo, PLEASE let me know.
Ok, I have to go shiver and shake some more now.
