Someone recently suggested I change the name of my blog to "Keeping Up with the Cos's" because we've always got so much going on! And things are about to get even crazier!
Coach started his position here in Dallas on April 1, 2015. I had been working at the Sheraton in Columbia but resigned mid-March so I would be available for house hunting trips in Dallas and be there for KJ during this big transition (which was essentially our second move in less than two years). So, basically I've been a stay-at-home mom, a homemaker, a domestic Goddess, whatever you want to call me, for almost two years. T is independent and living an incredibly full life in Birmingham. KJ is a junior in high school, driving and starts an after school job next week. In approximately 18 months Coach and I will be empty nesters. And now I need to start making some changes.
As much as I've loved being here for my family, getting everything settled in Dallas and being a lady of leisure, it's time for me to think about a career. Yup. Forty-nine years old and I think I've finally found my dream job and something I would call a career, not just a job to fill time in between our moves.
I had been interviewing for a few months but nothing really seemed to fit. I love being in the hospitality industry and there are tons and tons of hotels and resorts in this area. Unfortunately sales and catering positions don't come easily and I think my resume scared off potential employers. I obviously have the experience but there's always that chance we'll get transferred.
Before Halloween I started the interview process with a hospitality company and got a great offer on our drive to Nashville for Thanksgiving!! To say I'm super duper excited is an understatement! The two properties I will be selling are awesome and everyone I've met has been incredible!
So, pretty soon I'll be signing "Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho! It's off to work I go!!!"
