Today, after 4+ months, I am happy to say that I will become gainfully employed again next week. I am so very relieved and excited. I'm even more relieved and excited that I was able to find a job in my chosen field in a law firm that has been voted as one of the Best Places to Work 3 years in a row - and they've only been in existence for 5 years. I think that's really great. The office where I'll be working is incredibly cool. It's the top floor of a renovated locomotive factory. Lots of exposed brick and high ceilings. Windows that actually open! The decorator/designer had fabulous taste in furniture and the artwork is gorgeous. Fingers crossed that this is a good fit and that I won't be job hunting again for a very long time.
I have much to catch up on here. I haven't wanted to post anything because I felt I didn't have a lot of positive things to say. The last month has been particularly difficult on my self-esteem and attitude. I felt like I was perpetually blue and couldn't find a way to snap out of it. I've learned some things about myself during this period and that's not a bad thing. Now I can use that information going forward and work on a better me.
Off to bed to try to turn off the whirling dervish that is my brain right now. Tomorrow morning I'm going to the airport to see my favorite kids off as the family heads to Disney for a week. Without me. But there will be pictures and memories that they can share with me when they get home. I'm looking forward to seeing it through their eyes.
See you soon!
