So the new job isn't as terrible as I feared. I'd even venture to say I like it. The people are great. We really clicked. They know a lot of the same people I know. I have high hopes for this job. I think maybe 2009 was just teasing me... we will see.
My new boss asked me the dreaded question: How many kids do you have?
Well, actually he asked me how old my kids were, so that one was easier to answer. The "how many" one is the one that gets me. I just wasn't ready to hash out the whole dead baby drama to my new boss and his wife at our first business lunch. I'm sure eventually I will tell them, but my first day wasn't the day to do it.
