I'm here. I'm back. For now!

So- lets recap. Christmas has come and gone. We welcomed in 2011...and today is 1-11-11... I feel like that's an omen or something... at the very least - its a really cool date!!!

The holidays were amazing. Great time spent with family and friends. Its so wonderful getting home for Christmas. I am already looking forward to next year.

Now lets talk about the big news...
I have a few things to mention...I did not dislike my job at Machinery Link.. but when I evaluated where I was at and what I was doing- I kept coming back to the realization that I would not be improving my life/career at Machinery Link. There just wasn't a "next job"... or promotion. I'm a very goal oriented person- and I had no goals to reach at Machinery Link. I was becoming unhappy- and it was noticeable... so- I made a change. I have to attribute what happened next to being a "God" thing... it all happened a week ago...

Last Monday night I spruced up the resume... I applied for 3 jobs. On Wednesday afternoon I received an email from one of the companies- asking if I could interview Thursday at 6:30 p.m. - so of course I obliged. I interviewed Thursday night- and on Friday at 10 a.m. I had a job offer!!! Wow. I am still in awe. Typing it makes me see just how crazy it is! After some discussion- I accepted a new position with Touton USA as a Logistics Coordinator - Its hard to accurately describe what my job will be - but essentially I will be managing the US facilities for the import and export of commodities Touton trades...

The job is located in Kansas City near the airport - which is great... no move for me! I was so excited for that news- as I have fallen in love with the life I have created in KC. I start the 24th of January.... making my last day at Machinery Link the 21st. I will have 4 or 5 weeks of training in Indianapolis - as that is where their current headquarters is- Touton hopes to be headquartered in KC by March 1 of this year. I expect life to be a whirlwind the next few months! Hang in there with me, friends!

And if you are wondering- Lena will be cared for - by my awesome parents - and a few others have volunteered - she just might be taking an extended vacation - traveling the US!

Thanks for everyone's continued support - I'm very excited for the upcoming changes in life!
