Yeah Baby!

So my second interview actually happened today. Once again I wasn't nervous until I got in the car and then when I walked in the room I was fine. They were both beaming at me and I was getting a good vibe. So I met the supervisor and she told me my interview notes and references were excellent. Then she asked me a few questions about specifics on facilitating discussions and how I would handle certain situations. I figured I would go and then hear later. But she offered me the job right there. That's right, you read that correctly, "she offered me the job." Inside I was bopping up and down and doing the cabbage patch. On the exterior I was cool and collected, as if I got offered great jobs every day. They told me that they wanted to get me back in because they were afraid of losing me. And also how the group is full of really dedicated, smart and nice people. I am so excited. We discussed some particulars and the rest will be setup later. I start on Oct. 29 which gives me plenty of time to get ready and transition Keegan into daycare.
Although I have mentally spent my first yet to be earned paycheck five times over, honestly it is still sinking in that I really got it!!!
