  1. Congrats on the job!! At least this way, when you DO hit your goal you can afford to buy yourself something nice! :)

    Welcome back to the wonderful world of desk jockeying!

  2. Glad to see there is more good news than bad! Focus on the good!

  3. Hmm. Not sure if I am supposed to say congratulations or offer hugs.

  4. Love it--it's all good! I think the good news outweighs the bad! Best wishes with your new job.

  5. Good luck to you!always think positive to reach your goal.

  6. The job is great news and I have faith in you that you can make it all work. It sounds like it will be less stressful than your last one which will be half the battle I think. I also reckon you have a need to prove to yourself that you can do this while working (which of course you can!). You will feel even better and more relaxed about it all when (not if) you do.
