NOW FOR THE BREAKING NEWS!!!!!
I have wanted to tell you guys all about my stress and the reason for it, but I couldn't. You see a few of the people I work with read this blog and I needed to keep this very quiet up until now. I am leaving my current employer and heading of to work at a new company! That's right all that hubbub over a new job. Currently I am a sys admin, but now I am getting back into the Credit Union industry and will be back to Managing an IT Department. Actually Manager of Technology and Online Services is the official title. So there you have it. All of my stress had been due to the fact that I knew the position was coming available and interviewing and waiting and just that whole process. I am very excited to start with my new company and will be able to again focus my energy on my health.
Have I talked about being singularly focused? If not, we will discuss that in the next day or two.
