Okay, so here's the story.
I was in Charlotte, working a contract attorney position, just fine. I was choosing between returning to Colorado and staying in Charlotte. I was leaning toward staying in Charlotte because the job was better and I liked being near my family.
I had a very strong feeling that something was going to happen in Charlotte. I was going to church (which I haven't done regularly in years), I was hanging out with my family, dating, feeling good. Then I got a call from a law firm in Memphis to which I had sent a resume back in March. I talked to them, the firm sounded really cool, and it sparked my interest. But then I didn't hear anything from them again. Two weeks ago they called. They wanted to interview me the next day. The interview went pretty well, but I still wasn't sure about the job. I thought Charlotte was where I was supposed to be at the moment.
So I talked to a friend of mine who happens to be a priest, because I didn't want to make the wrong decision. Only three days after the interview I got the offer, which was strong enough I felt like I was doing the right thing to accept it. And I felt peace about it. So here I am, back home in Memphis. I'm excited to be back to a "real" job, and thrilled with a real paycheck and real benefits... And it all feels right. I was sad to leave my family in Charlotte, I would have liked to have something come along there, but I am confident this is a good thing.
I decided it would be wise, as a domestic litigation attorney, to keep my blogging private and anonymous. Don't need clients or opposing parties knowing my personal business. So Sadie rides again. I can only imagine it will lend itself to all sorts of interesting blog posts. :)
