And now...

Not exactly a life goal, but it's a first. I lost my job. I've never been fired or let go from a job, then last week, I got laid off. Honestly, it's a relief. I've known that it could be any day for quite some time, so just getting off the ride feels good. Financially, I've got a couple months worth of expenses in the bank, plus unemployment we'll be ok for a while. And honestly I'm not panicked. I don't have the feeling I'll be unemployed for long. Hopefully.

I've got an interview tomorrow, and I'm hoping it's something that would actually be a good fit. I'm not to the point where I'm desperate for any job. While I have the luxury of time, I'd like to make sure it's a job that will actually work for me and move my career forward. I'm not ready to take a step backward. Yet. So fingers are crossed.

Meanwhile, I'm enjoying some relaxation, and getting to focus on myself for a while. I've been exercising more, spending lots of time with the kids, enjoying my time with Xtian. House projects are getting done and my garden looks great.

So, that's my life right about now.

I'm sorry to hear that. You have a great positive attitude about the future though, and that will get you where you want to be. Good luck with the interview. I hope it ends up being a good fit and works out. In the meantime, definitely enjoy the time off. Sounds like you are so far :)
