I was just thinking today about how I could take the JOB site off my bookmarks toolbar, but I didn’t actually do it, which turns out to be a good thing. They haven’t found a replacement webmaster. I guess there was a bit of he-said, she-said, some crossed signals and miscommunication, such as can happen around the Christmas vacations. Anyway, Da Husband asked me if I’d consider stepping in temporarily, and I said oo, er, ah, um, oh all right. So there I am. Maybe. If they can agree on my salary. Glad to be bringing in some money, a bit bummed about the free time and brain space I was looking forward to having. BUT it’s only a 3-month contract. By March they should have someone else.
And actually, this is probably a good thing. Because my reason for quitting at the end of last year was that I was going to be done with the database thing early in November, and so January would be a good time to look for a job or internship. But Mom’s death and the surrounding events set the course back a bit, so I’m still not done. And Da Husband has to finish his book by July, so will have to spend more and more time away from home, so I kinda have to be here. All in all, I probably shouldn’t look for a new job until summer anyway.
So okay. Deep breath. Change of plans. Okay.
