When life goes kaplooey

Why is it that my life goes quietly along for months at a time and then five things happen all at once and I go into OVERLOAD!! Really, I can't take all this stress. :)

But I have good news to share. I got a new job today! Actually it's at the same company, doing the same kind of work. Really kind of just a promotion but also dealing with a different imprint (mass market books this time--ooh!). More money and an office! An office! With a door! A door that shuts! After 4 years of working in a tiny, overflowing cubicle this is a big deal.

The bad news is that now I have to 1)train on new job 2)start new job 3)keep doing old job until they hire a new person 4)catch up on all the work that I've let slide so poor new person doesn't hate me 5)train new person on old job. So if my web presence is a bit spotty here for a while, I hope you'll all forgive me.

Congratulations to you! That's great! Yeah, the other stuff is sucky (training, playing catch-up, less blog time, etc.), but the new job is great! And an office. Ooooh! Good luck with it and to you. :-)
