Our New Normal
Hello? Anyone still out there? I'm joining you today (finally) from my new normal. That is, life outside the corporate office. I have more to say about than I can put into words at this moment, but the short of it is that my position was eliminated, and thus, so was I. It was sad in a lot of ways and happy in a lot of others, but mostly, it is strange.
Last week was my first week at home, but it was filled with out-of-town visitors, a day trip to Atlanta, and then heading out of town for a wedding. I had hoped to blog as business as usual, but as you may have noticed, that didn't happen (or even close to it!). So today was my first real day off the job, and let's just say, I was bored at 9:30 a.m. This will definitely take some getting used to, but I think that once I get my computer files in order and establish a loose routine I will be back in action, on the blog at least.
I'm not looking for anything full time for a couple of reasons (this being the main one) but I am looking to get a few things going from home in the 6 months we have until the arrival of Baby Bonds. I'll be sure to share more details as things get ironed out, but I look forward to having you all along for the journey!
In the meantime, I have quite the list of home projects to be completed A. while I have the time and B. before they become physically impossible. Some will be fun (nursery!) and I will be happy to have some good material for you again. Others, like painting and touching up trim, will simply be crossed of the list and never spoken of again.
