My friend from here originally but who now has a new job emailed me the description of the job she is trying to poach me for. It is almost exactly what I do right now, for more money but with the addition of more working with leaves of absence and no retirement plan work. So add the one thing I hate the most in my job and take away a piece I actually like. And add a 1hr 40 min commute via bus or who knows how long via car since I come from downtown and I would be fighting northbound Microsoft traffic. It would be more money. Potential for growth is there because it is a big company and so there is more movability than when it is 2 people in the office. But I don't want to leave here just because I'm bitter over not getting my boss's job. AND if I left here, I'd lose my brownie meeting place. Hmmm... what to do what to do?
Thank you dear readers for kind words (and in Stephen's case the e-card). I really appreciate it and will be back to my normal easily distracted self fairly shortly.
