I usually make an effort to keep my blog positive, this post is an excuse. First of all, I apologize to all of you readers who I didn’t reach in person or via phone. If you read my blog, I’d like you to know, I just wasn’t able to repeat myself time and time again.
I have become part of the 7.2% unemployment rate due to the economy. I got laid off on Friday from my job at the ski team. I saw it coming about 12 hours prior to the actual meeting- I don’t know if it was better that way or I would have rather been blindsided. It’s been a tough couple days. My moods have gone from scared, to shocked, to sad to angry. I can best describe my feelings as feeling like you’ve lost something you loved- like a pet or person. I loved my job there, I was passionate about it and now I can’t be with it, and that’s difficult for me.
I’m usually a firm believer in “change happens for a reason”, but am a pretty impatient person when it comes to finding out the reason. I know I’ll find something to make this all make sense, but in the meantime, I’ll be picking up some extra shifts at Bux (thank god for a 2nd job!)- not sure what my next move will be.
Oh yeah, here’s a photo of a scorpion Chris and I saw in Florida. I did a search and scorpions do not bring good or bad luck, so I can’t blame this dude for Friday.. he’s pretty cool, huh? If you liked him, too bad, Chris killed him.
