In other news y'all... an important tidbit to update... I am jobless.  While traveling back to Georgia from visiting Kansas I received a text message from my boss saying she wanted me to stop by when I got back into town.  Considering I was planning on working the next day I knew it probably wasn't a good sign it couldn't wait until the next day.  Needless to say I missed my shuttle from Atlanta to Augusta and told her I was not coming in when I got back to town shortly before 8 that night.  Asked her what she needed and told her I was fine with hearing whatever over the phone.  To which she responded with she didn't want to do it over the phone but she was letting me go.  Her reasoning was that it was still within my initial 90 day window and she just didn't think our personalities were working well together.  I said okay... or something along those lines.  I mean what else can you really say?  She continued to say she would write me a recommendation letter if needed and that I really am a hard worker.  I can't say that I was surprised that is what she wanted to talk about considering the timing of the initial text.  But I am surprised with the reasoning... we've never clashed over anything.  I picked up the job duties fairly easily and even helped make a few changes... had never had any sort of problems.  So that my friends was sort of a shock.

But everything happens for a reason.

I am back to being a stay-at-home-wife.  I was going to try and find another part-time or temp job to fill in until baby gets here... but the hubs likes having me at home when he gets off.  So I think I am done working for a bit.  And I'm for real okay with that.  Sleeping in... keeping up with the house... finishing my last session of school... preparing for baby... getting busy with base activities again.  I like that life.  A lot.

always,

  1. That definitely odd that her reasoning was she thought you two clashed. Well everything does happen for a reason. :)

  3. It's kind of nice to get to stay at home and prep for the baby at least! It's kind of silly that she would have an issue with your personalities clashing... Weird. You're colleagues, not friends! haha

    Thanks for filling out the survey! You're so cute, and so are those pups!

  4. Sorry to hear you lost your job. That must be tough. But now you can have some quality time with your hubby and have more time to prepare for the little one!

  5. What a weird reason to be fired if she thinks you're a hard worker. But that's good that you get to be there when you're husband gets home.

  6. I can't believe she let you go via text! How unprofessional.

    Congrats on your baby girl!

  7. Aw, bummer! Trust me, her saying that was her trying to be political about the true reason, which probably has to do with the company's finances. I've heard that line before, and it turned out the boss' kid brother wanted the job and so he got it. I've heard other lines before, and always, when I checked in with work friends later, it was because there was a reorganization, or they were about to declare bankruptcy, etc.
    But you know, if your boss can't be truthful about WHY they laid you off, they don't deserve your hard work and dedication. You'll find a better one soon!

  9. Boo to getting laid off. Random question that has nothing to do with your post - are you still doing logos and business card designs? I need a new one for a business that my sister and I are starting up :)
