An Offer I Can Refuse

Well, the job people called. They were very frank with me, and that is good.
I was offered the temporary full time position with potential to be hired on as a permanent employee. They offered me less than my asking wage. However, being that I was very candid with them in the interview--having kids and all--they already know where my priorities are.

I have to give them an answer tomorrow morning.

On the up side, being that it is temporary, I could go into it with the mindset that my paychecks are for savings only. Then at least for the next [up to] 6 months...we could build a nest egg--and Kimi could go to 'preschool'.

I'm trying to see the positive, and ignore the negative. One thing is for sure, whether I am working or not working, the laundry NEVER gets done.

First off, congrats! That's cool that you got offered the position.

Second, after I had done so, my boss told me that you never lose anything by counter-offering. If they say no to the counter-offer, you can still accept the original. I guess the exception would be if they were very clear that they were non-negotiable.

Either way, I hope it all goes well!

Nest eggs are good, comfy place - that's why I'm getting my Masters, so I can teach college and then have some TRAVELIN' money, baby!

And I'm sure I will experience the same angst - can I write you about in about two years? :)

You have a knack for
writing. I read about 20
blogs a day, and skim about
30 more, so I mean it! We
can all use improvement, but
you certainly are better than
most I've read.

I'm going to be starting a blog
soon, about keyword ranking
(I know, it sounds strange!) but
if you don't mind, I might drop
you a line just to get a little advice.
Ok?

Thanks kindly.

Nathan: Yes, I have decided to counter-offer...just to see if they have a cap.

Africa: Yes, you certainly can write to me in a few years...I wish I could wait that long as my youngest is only 3.
