One Year

Well, it's been one year and counting.  Yesterday was my one year anniversary of getting laid off.  It's had a few good moments (like the fact that I actually got a summer to spend with my boy-o) and a lot of low moments (I won't highlight those...).  Over all, it hasn't been a very positive experience.  I could say that I've learned a lot, but even that paints a happier picture, since usually learning is a good thing.

But, I'm hoping that things are on the upswing.  I've seen a lot more activity on jobs I've applied to in the last few weeks, including two actual in-person, live interviews for positions this week!  (I'd take either one, but the one I interviewed today feels like a much better fit personality and skill wise.)  While none of the jobs I'm applying for will pay me anything near what I was making at my old position, they will pay me enough to do for now.  So, I'm hopeful but with the way things have fallen apart without notice before when it comes to job offers I'm not holding my breath too hard.

Anyhow, I really don't have much more to say.  Other than happy birthday to Mom on Tuesday and my cousin Ethan today.  I really do need to write more here, I have been letting things fester a bit too much and well, it gets kinda ugly when that happens.

Hopefully, I'll be posting more positive things in the near future.  At least spring should hopefully be finally here after the very, very, very snowy and bitterly cold winter we've had.  (I don't think there was a week in January and February where the boy-o went to school every day and without any delays....)

Anyhow, I'm just kinda rambling and I need to get to bed so I can get up in the morning to do it all over again.

Peace to all and may you have good things on the horizon.
