»back in the saddle«

A lot has happened since I last posted. I basically bailed on my blog for a while. There hasn't been a blog post either for personal stuff or for my 52 series. And I'm sorry for that. So let's get out of the shade and shed some light on my life lately.

So first thing that's happened, and the biggest thing that happened was that I got let go from my job. The stress from working with customers and meeting guidelines has been lifted but it's been replaced by another stress. I have to have a job for the benefits, because let's be honest here, health insurance is expensive as hell without a job. It's also doubly stressful because my job, I was "the bread winner". My paycheck covered most of the bills. And while I'm looking for a job, Rob is working his ass of getting over time for the bills to be covered. And right now, we're okay. We are trying to budget things better and it's working so far, but I need to have a new job as soon as possible. I don't want to be picky, but I would like something with holidays off with normal Monday through Friday work. I've been applying and applying and applying. I've probably applied to about 15-20 different things.

But I won't give up hope. I don't talk about it much as it's such a private thing, but my spirituality has directed me to ask my ancestors (via Tarot) about what I should do and what direction I should take. And the King of Wands showed up. To me, The King of Wands in its upright position means to keep a positive eye on things and is generous with work and negotiations. So keeping that in mind. I'm going to keep looking and keep searching.  I'm sure I'll land back on top.

With that in mind, here's the thing. I'm going to be posting a lot more. Maybe in June even do a post a day. I did one of those way back when I was still on livejournal. I'm going to be catching up with 52 again and I think I'm going to be introducing either a Wednesday Wish List or a Friday favorites sort of thing. Because while I'm broke and out of a job, doesn't mean I have to stop "window" shopping.
