Fairytale Princess Amy

Waiting for the other shoe to drop

Another bad dream. This one about a contract negotiation gone wrong at my new job (which didn't actually bear much resemblance to my new job, except in so much as I was about two weeks into it. Hoppie thinks it's because I still think this job is too good to be true and I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.
It's definitely true that I still think this job is too good to be true. Even living it, I can't believe it. I'm not saying it's not a lot of work, it definitely is. Current estimates have us running about about 3% complete, and we have some very aggressive deadlines, but it makes me feel good. I know I'll be ready to kill someone, possibly myself, in November when the deadlines looms imminently, but even knowing that doesn't dampen my enthusiam.
It really is a whole new ballgame. Who knew?
