People, it is all happening. I guess you knew that my misery wouldn't last forever. And, it's not like it's over, not at all, but at least there is hope.
Ok, so, first, I have a brand new kitchen faucet. The plumber was super nice and did a fine job. Well, his caulking was kind of crummy, but I'll worry about that later. The faucet works great and looks fantastic.
Second, yesterday, I got a job offer. Someone who runs a small business that I've worked with over the years called me up and asked if I were interested in working there. Amazing. I don't know if I am, I don't know what they would pay, or if I can even really do that job. I still HATE the idea of leaving my job because the work (not the management!) is the best it's ever been. But just knowing that I could leave if I wanted helps immeasurably. I feel lighter. Also, my supervisor is out for a week, so I can relax a little while she's gone.
Last, remember my post about my night out the other day? One of the men I wrote about 1) commented on the post and 2) emailed me and 3) seems to think we should get together. That is totally bizarre, a little disconcerting, but also flattering. I'm not sure why I'm not completely convinced it's the same guy, but he seems to remember salient details about me...so it probably is. I do recall this happening to me one other time--a man recognized himself from something I wrote, though in that case, we hadn't actually talked. My powers of description were so amazing that he recognized himself from my description. He and I did get together once, but it was a friendly thing.
Anyway, that's the story for now. Things are looking pretty good.
Grateful for: a pleasant turn of events.
