Eyes on the horizon

Bad news abounds. One of my friends was diagnosed with effing cancer again and a second one might too. Tornadoes and floods fill the tv with heartbreaking images.

My former employer whipped out more awesome today, AGAIN firing people in batches... Because, why tell expendable people one by one when you can knock off 20 at a time? (Sarcasm)

Some of the people I worked with and ate lunch with got hit today, and two years after it happened to me, I am shocked at how quickly time has gone by. I'm still shaking my head at the heartlessness, not to mention how much offshoring ANY job to effing India offends me.

I remember the people who reached out to me after I lost my job and I remember the ones who didn't bother to call or email...

For me, it was the best thing in the world. I needed to get out of there. And overall I am so much happier now, though I miss a few people. Work no longer crushes me from the inside out.

My finances are not ideal but they are slowly creeping in the right direction. I need to figure out what my 'next' career plan will be.

It's going to get better, kids. I really do believe that. Whatever is on your plate, don't give up hope. We can always start over.

I'm off to kiss a cute baby face tomorrow. Road trip!!!
