I am back. No, it is true this time. With more focus and more tenacity that before. I knew that taking a step back was what I needed to do but I did not know how long it was going to take. I never expected it to take six months. In my last post I wrote about changes that I would be taking on.
And as I read through this post it is cool to see that I have made some progress. I have a new job and I have moved. I’m liking the new job. (Note: I did not say love) I do like a little extra in the bank account these days!
I am enjoying the new house with more space . I was hoping to move into a less expensive place but it was not in the cards. The house is a little more expensive. We were thinking that we were going to get a roommate but the original roommate
bailed made other living arrangements. Initially it was a panicky situation because a lot of things were happening at once.
As it turned out I had to have surgery so I ended up losing my job. During the time of the move and the roommate
fiasco situation, I was trying to find another job. My nephew moved in with us (which is a whole other story *whew*) and I found a job which better suited me. Is it not funny how things just work out?
Plus, the son got married. That stress-er is done. Not that I really did much for it. It was interesting having all the ex’s at the same table. It sounds horrible when I say it in that manner. Giggle, but I must admit, it is a pretty cool story. I intend to share it later.
However, the most fun part for me is I am nearing my graduation date. I soon will be done with my undergraduate and moving forward toward my masters. I am finally putting the puzzle pieces of this life together. My life is so much like a puzzle. I am trying to fit all these pieces together to make this work! It is fun, exciting, crazy and eye opening.
It has meant that for the past six months I have had to do some major focusing on a plan, each of these pieces and how they will fit together. I do not think that I have the algorithms all figured out quite yet however I have a firm grasp on the heuristics. I may not know where I am headed, yet I am clear where to find direction that I need.
