    I know the salary may be a slight step back, but with a good fit and a positive attitude, you have shown you can work your way even higher. And balance in life is so important. Closer to home also means so much more time for yourself.

    I am so very happy for you.

    good news
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I may have tasted mead years ago; I may have enjoyed it. Is it anything like kombucha?

    Congratulations!

    How much notice do you have to give at current location? How much additional PTO hours do you have remaining? Can you use those for a vacation break before the new job?

    I'm so relieved for you to be departing the current toxic supervisor and expectations. Stand proud and strong. If supervisor is as manipulative/power hungry as in the past and this morning, he/she is liable to try to throw guilt your way over your FMLA. Should that begin, hold up your hand and say stop-I will not tolerate your criticism of mental health status.

    I dont know what kokbucha is.

    Mead is like champaigne, dry and white with light bubble action. This homemase stuff has some cloudy junk floating around in it. It is quite hgh in alcohol content The maker estimates as much as 16% alcohol in it.

    Kombucha is fermented tea; it has the cloudy junk (mother), but very little alcohol. It's the closest I come to drinking wine. It's bubbly, and can be dry.
