First of all, I wanted to thank you...  
...SO MUCH for your supportive and insightful comments in my last post. I took some time this weekend to re-evaluate my job situation and spent some much needed quality time with Mark & Sydney (something I haven't been able to do a lot lately) and just unwind... In the light of a new day, part of me thinks that the whole job thing was beginning to feel a little like I was giving up - just as things were getting tough... I knew the job would be difficult when I took it, and I knew that working so closely with my BIG boss was going to be a challenge (maybe I didn't realize the extent of it...) and when all is said and done, the fact still remains that I really do still think I can make a difference.

That, though, in no way means that I might not want to try to explore other options... This University job sounds like something I'd LOVE to do and I really don't think it hurts to inquire. I just think that I don't have the same frantic-ness I had when I began the weekend to get out of my current situation. And I know that once the week gets started again and the pace picks up to a ridiculous level, I'll probably re-think this... but what I have to keep reminding myself is the reason WHY I took the job in the first place.

So again, I wanted to thank you all SO MUCH for the wonderful feedback the other day. I know that I still have a lot of mulling over to do about my priorities - this industry and whether it's something I really want to stay in for the rest of my life... and my future as a whole... When it comes down to it, I'm really no closer in figuring any of this out this morning, but at least I'll be able to drag myself to work with a much better attitude and if nothing else, this weekend has reminded me WHY I'm in this business to begin with...

Once again, I'd like to thank you all for your words of advice in my last post. I know that I always say it, but I have the best LJ friends around!! Big *HUGS* to all of you!! I'm off to get ready for work... :)

Edited to add: I'm sorry I haven't been able to reply yet to all of your comments to my last post or comment on any of your entries since I have to run to work, but I promise to get to them all tonight!! Big *HUGS* again to everyone - I really, REALLY appreciate all of your feedback this weekend!!

I agree,... when I wrote the previous post it was at the end of a really long, really cruddy week and I wasn't sure if I was just really frustrated or if it went deeper. I know I still have a lot of thinking to do about this... But I will try to take it easy at work this week! Thanks, Angela!!

any time an opportunity comes up, I always think it's a good idea to explore it. hey, the worst than can happen is you don't get it, or you do, but decide not to take it. granted, I'm so miserable right now I would take just about anything that wasn't my current job. one thing I've noticed is that if you can't stop thinking about something (like a job opportunity), it's worth exploring. :)

I agree with you completely, Lauren! It never hurts to find out more! And I do hope that your job situation gets better - no one should be so miserable. :( Big *HUGS* to YOU!

Thanks so much, Sue!! And I agree - my family definitely comes first - my BIG boss just doesn't seem to understand that. Thanks so much for your comment, though and for your terrific support!! Big *HUGS* to you!!

You sound calmer - I'm glad that you could spent some quality time with Mark and Sydney, I'm sure this helped a lot. :)

It's you who is a wonderful friend, Sheri. Thank you for your trust to share that all with us and for your listen to all the feedback. I'm glad that you found your own way through this all. It's not an easy decision (actually, I can't imagine that something like that ever will be easy) but, whatever you will do, I've no doubt that it will be the right one for you. Well, that does not mean that I'm going to be quiet should you ever again ask for advice. :) I wish to see you happy and I always will be there for you.

Hope you have a nice day. Big *hugs* to you, Sheri!

Thankfully I'm much calmer. :) It's amazing what spending time with loved ones can do to lower your blood pressure. ;)

Sabine, I can't thank you enough for all that you've done for me in all the years that I've known you. You were one of my very first LJ friends and I'm SOOOO thankful that I met you in that Sheltie community - I don't know what I'd do without you!!

Thanks so much for being my friend, Sabine!! Love you! Big *HUGS*
