Life Update

I have a new job and I haven't finished the old one yet! Yay! (I hope.)  I'm still a little sceptical because of my recent track record. The Hubby says not to be ridiculous; I haven't started the new job yet.  I can't help it though.  I have had a string of disappointments on the employment front. Whose fault is it?  No one's, I don't think. It's just life.  Financial situations.  Whatever. 

I'm trying to be hopeful.  What I know for certain is that I'm lucky.  The job is close to home.  The people seem nice.  The offices have a nice combination of a modern and homey feel, very warm and comfortable, neat and clean.  I hope that is a reflection on what the working environment will be like.  I start in a week and a half.  I will hopefully be smiling.

Some Stuff That's Been Happening

I'm skating toward unemployment again.  It's my own fault, really.  I took a job last summer (2012) that was a maternity leave contract, which meant only a guaranteed one year of employment.  I listened to the promises. We're so busy, we'll need to keep you on.  We'd like you to stay doing all this stuff. We're 99.9% sure we are going to keep you, etc, etc...  Well, that .01% chance happened.  It is just not financially feasible to keep both of us.  Well, fine.  I was not surprised but, still disappointed. 

It's really affected my mood.  I couldn't concentrate on the book I was reading, so I stopped and switched books, something I rarely do.  That helped some.  I didn't feel like blogging.  This blog is sitting with 8 unfinished posts.  My other blog has three, I post less often there, so three is a lot.  I'm hoping to pull myself out. I want to finish my blog posts. I want to read more. I want to figure out a way to have fun without feeling guilty. Thanksgiving I coming up. Maybe I'll blog about my meal? Maybe not.
