Where in the world...

…have I been?

Goodness.  It’s been a minute since I’ve posted and really, I have no good excuse as to why I haven’t.

Moving right along…

A LOT has been going on in my life and I’ll update you,

In bullets:
  • On March 16thI became unemployed
    • Lawdhammercy!  I haven’t really searched for a job in years.
    • Note to self:
      • Network, network, network
        • Always have a business card handy
    • Always keep interview skills sharpened
    • …And the resume
    • Salary history, too
    • Make sure you have an interview suit
      • …That fits!
  • On March 23rdmy cousin had her baby and I feel like a new mommy. 
    • Who knew that I could love someone else’s baby so much? 
      • The cooing and drooling and sweet-baby-smelling goodness is intoxicating.
  • With all that said, this new baby has re-confirmed some things:
    • I don’t want to birth any more children…
      • Ever!
    • Fractured sleep and walking around like a zombie...Packing a baby bag...Re-arranging my semi-carefree schedule...And, did I say, fractured sleep?
      • No, thank you!
  • During my stint with unemployment, I actually had an opportunity to “relax…relate…release.”
    • Yes, bills were piling up while my cash was depleting but it was the most peaceful time that I’ve experienced in a while. 
      • Odd, huh?
  • Ten weeks after ending a job, I started another as a contract employee.  I couldn’t be happier. 
    • Awesome working environment – check
    • Wonderful staff – check
    • Less than 15 minute commute – check
    • Prayers to God that this becomes a permanent position – double check!
  • I went camping!
    • Twice!
    • I love it!
  • I’ve witnessed, first hand, the power of the internet and how you can form strong, solid friendships
    • By the way, my friends totally rock!
