Well, I've applied for a 2nd job and I have to take a test for it today.  Ever since I found out about the test last week I've been feeling anxious and on the panicky side.  Why?  Well let's see, I haven't had to work with other people for over 3 1/2 years and I haven't had to drive in winter for that long as well.  It scares the hell out of me!  I am keeping in mind that I don't have to accept the job if I don't want it.  I'm also telling myself the money and benefits would help me tremendously and that is a plus.  I've been doing okay with the job I have now, but the work available is not as plentiful as it used to be so my paychecks have been 1/2 of what they used to be and I don't have benefits with them.  Well, guess that's it for this log.  More later.

It\'s really hard to do that, move on to a different job we get \"used\" to our surroundings and fall into a comfort zone with what we do. I have been wrestling with this problem myself of late. I have been thinking of taking a job in another country and it scares the hell out of me!

Hope all goes well with the test. If you get the new job and it is too much there is nothing that says you can\'t keep looking. Good luck!
