I was afraid this would happen

My interview that I had yesterday was successful. They are going to offer me the job, pending a reference check. Now I have to choose.

Do I take an interesting role, with scope for advancement and a certain degree of autonomy; with all the benefits of a permanent position? That means a 48 hour working week, minimum;  when you add in my other job I will have no days off at all.

 

I’ve never shirked hard work before and I regard it as a challenge. In the hereandnow, however, my father is dying, my husband may well do the same and family members need support. I can’t do it on fifty hour weeks.

 

Where do I go from here? Who do I sacrifice when I make the decision? I don’t want it t b me.

About quirkycharm

I like to think that I have a certain quirky charm but I am probably being optimistic. Acquired taste, perhaps, which many don't acquire. This is about my fifth blog out there. My hosting companies kept going out of business or my IT exhusband kept hacking into them and I would move again. I don't do twitter, I barely do facebook, I don't try and 'monetize' my blog. I love my husband, my grown children and my job and this particular incarnation of oversharing my life comes at a time when I am the most content that I have ever been. I write always, sporadically during the good stuff and exhaustingly during the bad.
