Hey all. It’s been 100,000 YEARS since I last wrote. Er, is that minutes? Oh. Either way it’s been a LONG ASS TIME.
How have you all been???
I’ve been working as bureaucrat. Yes, I now have a FULL TIME JOB. I’ve kept it for 8 weeks now. Wahoo! I’m now at the place where I start counting months instead of weeks.
This has been a huge adjustment since I hadn’t worked for the better part of 7 years. Stay-at-home mom and all that. Actually, untreated bipolar depression was the #1 reason, followed by the sucky economy. However, I just tell people I had the fortunate opportunity to spend time with my kids (which is true). The first reason (depression) is embarrassing and no one’s business and the second one (economy) sounds like an excuse.
My new job has been…very intensive. Lots of training because what I’m doing requires knowledge of complicated software and policy. Not my favorite but I have two reasons why I’m doing this job. #1. So I can begin to reverse my many years of avoidant behavior and #2. So I can separate from my husband.
But I don’t want to talk about any of this in detail. What I do want to do is show the pictures I took this last week showing that Spring is in full-force. Absolutely gorgeous.
