An Expected (Wonderful) Occurance

  {Image Credit

I know I have been absent as of late, but I do have a perfectly reasonable explanation that some most of you might not have seen coming...You see that picture above? That is the entrance to Rock Cut State Park, which is a state run park nearby where I live. And the current location of my part time job.

Say WHAT!?

You heard me correct ladies and gentleman-I got a job :)

The story is quite an interesting one. You see, I had worked here the late Spring, all of Summer and the beginning of Fall back in 2008 when I graduated high school. That was the best I had been health wise and I thought things were looking up. Until Fall rolled around and I had one of my infamous relapses and had to, unfortunately, quit.

Fast forward to two weeks ago.

I had found an old work shirt that fell behind the drier about a year ago and finally had a chance to return it because my family had pulled out our boat and hit up the park to go fishing. I ran into my old boss and we got to talking.

The conversation turned to my working life and this is how it went:

Boss: "You working right now?"

Me: "Unfortunately not currently, no."

Boss: "You looking for a job?"

Me: "Possibly."

Boss: "You want a job?"

Me: "That would be great! *smiles big*"

Short, sweet, and straight to the point.

That's not the best part of it all, though. I talked to my boss about my hesitation to work and my worries about health issues and my boss is willing to work with me and my health. We both agree that working will help me build back up my body and just as soon as I feel comfortable enough, my hours will increase from 10 to 15 to full time if I want.

This was my first and only "real life working" job and I LOVED it. Now I'm given a second chance to love it once more :)

I'm going to do my best to keep up with my blogging, too! This is another "job" that is near and dear to my heart!
