Back To Work...and then, to Santa Fe!

After much thought and discussion with ThatManILove, I have accepted an offer and will rejoin Life In The Oilpatch Monday morning. I’m going to work for a major service company, and I’m excited about it. Let the madness begin!


I’m sure ThatManILove is excited, as well, to have this crazy drama come to an end. My time off has been relaxing, and to be honest, we sincerely considered the idea of my "retirement", as it were. But really, can you imagine? ThatManILove swears I would drive everyone crazy if I retired...but I was really getting into my photography, and enjoying working with the WonderDogs. It’s almost hunting season, and we were getting busy! That will still happen, but I’ll be back to the “weekend warrior” mode of hunting.


The offers I received were amazing, and I still can’t believe that in this day and time that companies came forth the way they did in order to add me to their team. What a blessing! Making this choice was one of the hardest things I’ve done in a while - but we are excited about it! And...the weekend will find us in Santa Fe, on a work related boondoggle - so we're starting off with a bang!


Have a blessed Monday!

I gotta get it together after this wedding myself.

Janie, CONGRATULATIONS !!! I am not - in the least bit - surprised. The slowdown we're experiencing now is very different from what we had here 20+ years ago ... and I KNEW that someone of your caliber would soon be back at work!

And NMOGA ... I am sooooo envious. I don't get to go this year ... but look for My Favorite Landman up there, in the City Different!

Like Ibeati said, it's God. Your maker has plans for you for sure. Rest in His arms and all things come together

This is great news. Always tough to make these critical decisions, but I have faith you've made the right one for you and TMYL. Although, retirement did kind of sound yummy and I thought for a brief moment that you had lost it. But really, congrats on the new gig!

BEST,

Pam said...

Kudos to you. Glad you are getting back in the saddle, I'm afraid that you would have been a miserable retiree at this time in your life...wait a few more years. Have fun in Santa Fe.

Laura said...

Congrats over and over. I'm, sure it will take a little transitioning but what a cool gig. Plus they are lucky to have you Janie!

Gwynne said...

Like the rest, I am not the least bit surprised that you had multiple offers. I only pray that they are worthy of all you have to offer! You go, girl!! So proud of you. :-)

Suzy said...

Having spoken to you on the phone (which I hope to do again real soon) I could tell you were bright and had a wonderful personality. I knew some smart company would grab you up and I'm genuinely thrilled for you.
