I’ve Been So Blessed

by

The mornings are chilly now, and now I wake to the quiet darkness rather than the sun peaking through the blinds.  In the last week, I’ve spent those early waking moments in the complete stillness between night and dawn going over the many things I have to be grateful for.  It gets me ready for another long day of my last days at work, chauffeuring the kids and job hunting.

But I have been SO blessed this week with the out pouring of support and encouragement both on this blog and in my local community.  For a girl who often feels SO alone in this world, this week has shown me different.  I’m continuing to attend the local Job Transition group, getting advice, encouragement and job leads.  This morning I’ve sent out my resume to the leaders for review and correct.  It’s been a LONG time since I had to use a resume.

I’m applying like crazy to any job that even peaks my interest.  This has scared me a lot since a corporate job would mean a complete change in my life style, but I’ve decided that maybe this job loss was the “frying pan to the head” as I often need with my hardheadedness to make me change direction.

I think my goal right now is to keep the kids lives steady through the school year (April, 2016) if at all physically possible before making any big moves, but as I had previously decided, whatever comes then…we will go.  But perhaps this change means we are to make a big change earlier…I don’t know.

So I’m sorry I haven’t replied to all of your comments from last week.  I do plan to get to it, but THANK YOU for your kind words and support.

If you happen to be a technical recruiter or are in HR and would have time to review my resume and give me some feedback, I would love to hear from you. 


Made Some Changes – Phone Service

by

Consistently since I have blogged here, commenters have pointed out my large monthly expenditure on phone service.  And I am proud to say I have finally taken action and made some cuts.

Thusfar, I have cut $75 monthly service fee.  In addition, History Buff is now paying $30 per month for this phone (that is included in that bill.)

So I’m not sure of the new monthly fee total (all the fees and taxes make it challenging to get a good estimate.) But I’m going to LOVE seeing that bill be below $200.

Woot, woot!  Another bill strikes the dust…good thing too, since it’s just in time for our new BRACES!
