Cheer I'm going to be employed again

Looks like my interview today at 9AM went quite well. At 12:30PM I received a call that they would like me to start working pending my background and drug check Wednesday. This will be a contract to direct job if I work at well and it is paying $5 per hour more than I expected. I have to go to orientation Tomorrow after a 100 mile drive from Bellingham to Redmond. Then it will be up very early every morning to make the 75 mile drive to Everett. It is a good thing I have a car that get a little over 30 per gallon.


Anyway, YAHOO!!! I have a job again.

Fantastic! Congratulations and good luck.

Do we need to get the wake-up call team activated again? This one will be much easier for us east coast folk.

I normally wake up with out an alarm clock at 5AM. So getting up a half hour earlier should not be much of a problem.

Speaking of moving, here is the IRS's summary of the requirements for a work-related move to be tax-deductible. You have time to decide if you are going to move - the move has to be made one year from starting the new job to count as work-related. And you have to cut your commute compared to the previous job by 50 miles.

Oh, and congratulations.

I would think about moving, but my wife likes it here in Bellingham. Plus I can afford a house and the 5 acres of land I have with the garden and many fruit trees.

At least coming from the North I will miss most of the traffic.

This is great. I started a new job in January after being unemployed for nearly two years. You must feel wonderful.

Congratulations to both Drizzle and Elkhound.

Can you pass some of this job luck to my friend S?

Well, then I will echo the sentiment about having a very efficient vehicle. Does the new job have a place you could charge an electric car? Maybe you need a Tesla?

Survived the first day of work. Just lots of reading of company polices, standards and processes that I need to know and another full day of it tomorrow. Most of all I need to learn them fast and be able to work to them.
