I can't believe my last post was in June 2007...17 months ago.  Things really were going well, I suppose, so I didn't need to do a lot of blogging - I started when I was at the bottom of the barrel and feeling pretty badly about myself.  I shouldn't say "were going well," because in the Grant Scheme of Things they still are.  I won't attempt to cover all 17 months but I will sum it up as much as possible.

When I last posted I had just received the job at Johns Manville.  Over the last 17 months I found that I despised the job itself and many of the people I worked with, but stuck with it 'cause at this time a job's a job.  I was laid off three weeks ago along with the rest of the Canadian Team - they moved the Sales Center back to Alberta to save money. 

I was actually dating the same guy for a long time (for me) - March 2007 until last month, ended by my choice.  It was a good time, but we just weren't made for the long haul.  In that time we went to Iceland Airwaves, 18 Widespread Panic shows, got in 57 days of skiing with bunches of great weekends in the mountains, a fantastic Disco Biscuits show at Dobson Arena in Vail, and had a whole bunch of "fun."  I really can't complain.

Now I'm single and unemployed, with lots of thoughts about what I want to do, but I want to be sure I take a job that's right for me, not just to have a job.  It's rough - my severance got eaten up by my 401(k) - but I think it's the right thing to do.  Time to be happy in my work. 

I'm sure the creative juices will start flowing again as I start to write a bit more, but for now I'll leave my return to LJ at this.

I commented, but forgot to log in. HAHA

I was wondering where you disappeared to, thought maybe you died or got married or something, I was partly right. Sucks about the job and the ex, hope everything works out for you
Good to have you back.

Thanks for the welcome (back)! The job and the ex were good experiences, so I really can't feel too badly about them. Watch for more!
