At about 5:00pm last night, while sitting down in a local restaurant with the man, enjoying the Olympics over a frosty mug of ale and nachos (my favourite!), I got the phone call on my cell.

"Hi there, I'm pleased to let you know that you are the successful candidate for the Account Manager position!"


It was a night of celebration. :)

Unfortunately, as I mentioned. That's going to eliminate my extra day a week to volunteer at Petsmart/SPCA. I'm going to work there next week for sure, but after that, I'm going to have to call it quits. I'm really sad that I won't be able to do it anymore, but it was wonderful to do it for the few months that I did.
But that's not end all. I'm going to see what I can do in my time after hours, once I establish how things are going to work around with my new job.

Today, I'm home, with a curled up purring fuzzball between me and the keyboard as I write. She's such a little sweetheart and adores it when I'm home.

We've been talking about getting another pet recently. I've tossed around starting with something small, like a fish or a hammy, as to not disturb Yok too much. Of course, I want to adopt another cat, but I still can't bring myself to do it - for fear it'll just make her upset. I would consider getting a boy, if we did, so that there isn't as much of a female-dominance issue... but still. We'll see. ;)

Well, I'm off to shovel the driveway. We had a huge dumping of snow last night. Hope the winter doesn't last too much longer!

"Does that mean I have to get up too?"


  1. congratulations!!

    i work full-time during the week and volunteer at the spca a couple weekends a month. hopefully you'll find something that fits into your schedule.

  2. Congratulations on your new career! So when you say "Account Manager" ~ is that in a financial institution? That kind of Account Manager?

    Yoko looks so comfy laying there. I am sure she would be a good girl if you got another pet. What about a little bird! :)

  3. Exciting news! Wishing you all the best -- and hoping the transition is as smooth as can be.

  4. Thanks!

    Angie -- Yep, I am too. Weekends are usually busy for us around here. But, it's definitely a possibility. Going to try to figure something out one way or another!

    Catherine -- Yep, it's RBC. Used to work there a few years ago and really liked it, so I decided to go back. You're in banking, too, if I recall correctly, right?
    A pet bird may be possible. I love birds, though I think that would be the scariest to have around Yoko :D

    Leslie -- Keepin' my fingers crossed of that too! I figure it shouldn't be too bad, though :)

  5. Late to the party but.... Yahoo!!! Congrats, gal!! I work full time, too, so I know you'll find something that fits with the new schedule. Glad you'll be going into a firm you know and like... that's half of it right there!


Leave me your paw print! :)
