Working 9 to 5

I should be getting ready for work but I'm going to post a little tidbit for ya'll. It's looking like I might be staying in France afterall. You see so far I managed to pull off the impossible. I found a French company that is willing to hire me, give me a CDI contract and pay me well above the minimum wage. Oh and did I mention that when I was offered this job in February I actually turned it down because I'm a little not right in the head? Last week I went "groveling" back to them with my tail between my legs and to my surprise they were still willing to hire me. Lastly, the job doesn't require me to speak a lick of French.

So now, I just have make my way through the immigration/visa process once more to get things finalized and I should be on my way to becoming a consumer once again. Did I mention that I have a mound of paperwork to fill out and that I need to translate my resume into French for the OMI even though I didn't need a French resume when I applied for the job? Anyway, wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed for me.

One last thing, I'm currently entertaining some guests and the maternal unit is arriving shortly which is why I haven't posted in a while.
