The big change I mentioned a few posts ago? In full swing, and going very well.
The short version of the story is that I quit String and have started a new job. Before everyone gets all, "But who would quit a knitting store job!" let me just preemptively say that it was time for me to move on (I worked there more than 3.5 years!) and that nothing horrible happened to make me quit. I had actually been thinking of leaving for over 6 months, and this seemed like a good time to do it.
My new job is Office Manager at a small software company - it's actually kind of similar to what I did at String, except there's no retail aspect. I like this kind of job because of the variety of job functions involved, that way I never get bored! Yesterday was my 3rd day and I like everyone I'm working with and the office runs well and I already have lots of autonomy, which is very important for me (big surprise, I'm sure). A pleasant surprise, once I started working, was reading their employee manual - they give better benefits/vacation/etc than ANY job I've ever had! King of shocking, really, since this is a small company.
Anyway, that's the big news. Hope I didn't scare any of you too much with that previous post!
BTW, my chuppah is almost done . . . I am going to have to take it to my parent's house to block though, no way do I have that much room in my little apartment!!
