I got a new job!A scary, good, exciting development.
The new position is at an organization that provides legal representation for victims of domestic violence. It is the same, exact job title, but with the possibility of expanding into a Director of Development position (for those of you that have any idea what that is) within the first year. It is also a substantial pay increase, which couldn't come too soon.
I'm starting in late August, giving my current job three weeks notice and then taking a week vacation. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with a week of not working, except maybe lay on my couch a lot and watch TLC.
I'm scared that I may be suffering from "the grass is always greener on the other side" problem, but as P. pointed out to me today, in this case, even if the grass isn't greener, some more money will help fertilize the pasture. I hate that everything boils down to money. I worked for the Peace Corps for 18 months and made next to nothing. Now that I have a child, I'm realizing more and more that I can't pay the rent with my belief in a cause and I can't feed Zac with righteous indignation. Trust me. I've tried.
