..and the big news is...

You must do the thing which you think you cannot do. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Well, it's big news in my world, at least :-)

I have accepted a new job!

Through all of my ramblings on this blog about not living up to my potential, not being paid what I am worth, not challenging myself, etc... I finally put my money where my mouth is, so to speak.

After two grueling interviews, lots of prayers and lots of, ahem, drinks ... I decided that this was an incredible opportunity I could not pass up.

I will be working as a web content specialist for a world-famous medical institution. And if you know where I live then you can fill in the blanks. ha.

This kind of goes against my wish of spending more time at home with the boy. But such is life. The timing might not be perfect but when is it ever perfect?

I am leaving a job that I have come to love, and for that reason I am having some major panic attack moments. Did I make the right decision? OMG, what the hell am I doing leaving a job that I love???

But the bottom line is this: I am excited for my new adventure. It will be challenging. There will be moments of doubt and frustration. But in the end I need to do this for myself and for OUR future.

And guess what? I could love my NEW job, too.

So ...

What does this mean for this blog?

I am going to put it on hold for the moment. As I transition from my current job to my new one I will have even less time to blog. I know what you are thinking: "How can she blog any less than she already does (or doesn't)???" I know, I suck at blogging right now. But my focus is elsewhere.

I will be posting things from time to time here, but not often.

However, if you would like to keep up with me on Facebook, Twitter, or my other blog please feel free!

Thanks, all! xoxo


  1. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I need my Anne fix at least once a week! :'( Will you still leave hilarious comments on my blog when I'm not a total slacker and actually write?

    I guess that means I'll have to harass your ass on facebook huh? Lucky you!

    Seriously though, I'm so happy for you! You seem excited and happy and ready for the challenge. I have no doubt you'll succeed. Mayo Clinic is my favorite website. Pathetic, but mostly true. Can't wait to hear how it goes :)

  9. I'm very excited for you with the new job, and I have no doubts whatsoever that it is a good move for you. While I know you love your current job at the moment, and have a passion for the organization itself, I also know that you are craving MORE. More challenge, more variety, more to sink your teeth into. I believe ou are ready for what this new job will offer. It may not be easy, there may be days of doubt, but I believe it is indeed the next step you are meant to take!

  10. Exciting stuff! I have constantly been changing my balance and how the blog fits in to it all!
