Was getting nervous today with so much to do for Christmas and not much time in which to do it... Worried about the aftermath, money, work...
Spent most of the day with my dad cleaning and organizing 40 years of crap in his basement. Just got home and got an email about the job that pays well, but I really don't want. They are going to offer me the position. Yay?

Better to have a bunch of offers and get to choose which one you like best. Congrats!

Very favorable. I work like a sled dog and don't have seconds.

Hard to turn down a job that pays well and the people are good. But I hear you.

Thanks all. Yes, clod - I'd like to have another offer from anyone at this point to compare, but apparently that's not going to happen.
I spoke with him again today. He really wants me. Said he'd get the offer to me today - in writing as I requested. Been burned too many times being too trusting.
Went Birding all morning with my oldest & best friend. I was thinking how nice it will be to spend some time with him, but wasn't sure what to expect from my first birding experience being in the dead of winter. We had a blast. Pics to follow in that thread.

Me too. I'm not sure my dad is going to be ok. He never quits, never stops, and he's healthier than me but he's had a couple setbacks the last 2 weeks. I don't know how to deal with this. He might end up being ok but i have to deal with the reality that he might not. My dad is my hero, my favorite person, my birthday -sharer, I'm not equipped to deal with this. And he wants nothing more than for his kids to be ok. I'm the worst one, and im not even in prison or anything. Joke. Im just so scared, but i can only say it here. I have to be strong irl.

Thanks for listening. It's probably going to be fine.
