I’ve have been lobbying in Salem for the 2011 legislative session. However, when I accepted this job, I was only signed on for 2 weeks past the end of session. Initially, they planned on telling me two weeks before the end of session – or one month before I was to end – if they were going to ‘sign’ me on or not. But that did not happen.
Things have been so crazy down here that my boss never had an opportunity to talk to her boss! This has been very nerve wracking for me. Should I be job hunting? Should I be saving my money? Well, the short answer is yes. It is always good to be prepared for the worst. I also wanted to plan a trip this summer to visit my family back east, but without knowing if I needed to ask for days off, if I would be unemployed, or if I would have a new job it has been very difficult to plan anything!
But because I have an amazing boss, she said I could take the week of the 4th off.
Nothing is official yet, but they are starting to plan what projects I should work on over the summer. I won’t count on having a job until paper work is signed – but things are looking good!
Anyway, back to my vacation. I am planning on visiting Washington DC July 1st through July 10th. I will be spending the 4th in Hot Springs, VA at The Homestead. A friend of mine is planning on spending the weekend with me. She is in DC for a job interview and I’m excited to get to spend some QT with her.
Here are a few pictures from visits past:
