thursday is the new friday

I have yet another update on my job. And it’s an interesting one.

At the end of June, I was told that my project doesn’t have enough funding to keep me on full time and that my hours would be cut…down to 24 hours a week.

Perhaps a big “oh no!” for some, but a lot of you may know that I have been clamoring for a part time job, so I was really happy when the opportunity presented itself. Having extra time with my kids in the summer months sounded SO GOOD.

So…beginning two and half weeks ago (on 7/1), Thursday is now my new Friday and Tuesday is my new Monday. :) To say that it is wonderful is a huge understatement. I am L.O.V.I.N.G. my new schedule. The frosting on the cake? The company is still hoping to place me on a full time assignment so I am not on a part time status yet (read: they are still paying me the same).

I don’t know how long this will last – when the company may find me a full time assignment or when I may be placed on a part time status. Right now, I am just enjoying my good fortune while I hang out with my two kiddos.

I hope you have a great weekend! Happy Thursday! TGIT!

  1. Sounds like a sweet deal! Happy to hear you and the kiddos are squeezing so much into the summer and now that you'll be around more often, I'm sure they're going to love their extra time with you.

  2. Seems like the perfect situation for you! Nothing better than getting to spend some extra time with the kiddos in the summer time. They're so cute in this picture!

  3. And so the sequestration has finally hit home. Better start closing some deals on my end or there'll be another adult sitting at home...

  4. That's great! I'm so happy for you =) Enjoy the extra time with the kiddos! ~Zi

  5. Wow part time hours on full time pay. Awesome!!
