Wait and See
Thanks to everyone who emailed me to see how I'm doing- you guys are really the best. I've recieved all kinds of great advice over the last two weeks from "revise your resume" to "have a few drinks," both of which I have done.
I'm sorry to report that I've taken this whole losing my job thing awfully hard. Even though I've been lucky and found a decent paying temp job to hold me over in the meantime I'm finding myself very depressed and filled with anxiety over what the future will hold for me and my family.
My current job ends on Tuesday (which I'm taking off - HA!) and the new one starts on Wednesday. I anticpate that the worst part will be being away from my kids hours longer each day... oh and the mind sucking monkey work I'll be parking my butt in front of all day (but really that's a far second.)
I'm worried I won't find something better.
I'm worried that if I do I'll still be away from my kids too long...
And what about Shabbos?? I hate having to explain that and hope that whatever I've been offered won't be quickly retracted.
Clearly I'm getting way ahead of myself.
With all the additional work I'll be taking on (under more watchful supervision) and all the time I have been/will be spending looking for another job from home I'm not really sure I can keep up this blog.
I want to - I mean where else can I spill my guts to friends and strangers and let them do the same to me in return?
I like it here.
It's like a second home to me - only flat- and with no furniture.
But I digress.
I guess for me it's all about putting in my best efforts and hoping for the best: for my family, for myself, and even for my blog. I guess that's all I can tell you for now.
