A quick update about the situation.
Recruitment agency called and said that we'll know for sure whether the deal has been decided on late today (Friday) or first thing Monday morning. He said they were happy with me, and now they're just ironing out the other side of the agreement between the two companies.
I am putting it out to the universe that they will call me late this afternoon. I don't know if I could wait the entire weekend. Well, I probably could, but I'd love a couple of days to sit on the decision and mull over in my head what the next few weeks will be like, rather it all happening at once.
Have been plugging away the past couple of days trying to move a whole lot of work off my desk. I have this strange feeling about it all. Michelle Williams, from Dawson's Creek said that working on that show made her feel like she was mafia. The whole time she was working there, she was always working on something that would get her off the show. So it was like being someone running a Pizza place (your 'legit' business that everyone sees) and operating the drug/weapons/money lending behind the shop (that no one sees).
I think that's how I am feeling at the moment.
