Update

Hello all you DG worshipers....yep, I'm talking to you Phats! XD

If anyone, besides Phats, still follows me, here's an update:

So, lots has changed, yet stayed the same for me. First off, I was laid-off from that "wonderful" job with which I had been just SO in love in August of 2010. It was a shock to me but after the initial shock had passed, I was quite ok with it. The feeling of "Oh gosh, do I really have to get up and go to that place to work again today?!?!" was gone. I had signed up for unemployment, which wasn't much, but kept my bills in good standing. Then, I started polishing up the old resume and putting a portfolio together.

My mom was getting a bit irritated with me by not "pounding the pavement" to find a new job. I tried to explain to her that you don't really do that these days to find a job. She learned that pretty quickly when I got an interview for a job....in Florida! I had a phone interview and then a Skype interview the next day. After a couple weeks, I got a call and was offered the job! I was ecstatic! An adventure lay in front of me and I jumped at the chance to start it.

So, I'm now living in the Sunshine State and LOVING it! No more gray, Ohio winters to struggle through. This is my second winter here and I can honestly say that they have been the best ones of my adult life. No feeling of dread coming over me at the thought of facing a season, or two or three, of gray days. There have been some cool days down here, don't get me wrong, but the sunshine makes ALL the difference in the world!

The hardest part, though, has been being so far away from my friends and family. Especially now that I am a Godmother to two wonderful girls. My friends Jennifer and Skii have bestowed upon me the great honor of being a spiritual guide for their daughters, Katie and Abby. I just hope I can live up to that honor.

The biggest change for me has been realizing that it's official and I am on my own. It took me waaaaaaaaay too long to get here, which may be a regret of mine, but somehow have to turn it into something positive.

Anyway, just thought I'd share with you what's happened since last I really updated. Not that many read this any longer, but hopefully one or two of my blog buddies still check in on my every now and then. And who knows? I might just come back to this blogging thing to put down what's swirling around in my head. Everyone needs an outlet, right?

So, be good to each other and I'll catch you later!

Can I get an Amen??

It's lengthy, but well worth it! Please share if you feel someone needs to hear the message too!

Fantastic quote by an amazing man

Number Two

Two seems to be my number lately.

I had my interview two weeks ago.

I just found out late last week that I am number two on the prospective employer's list...hopefully, they interviewed MORE than two.

However, I'm still in limbo as to whether or not I get a job there. Even though I wasn't their first choice, they still want to "make room" for me. So, maybe it will be a couple months or a couple years that I'll get the call saying they want me. Will I still be available is the question.

I plan on still searching out another job. I can't stay where I'm at right now. Just not a great (or lucrative) place to be.

So, if you want to find me, start looking in Limbo...you should find me there, but hopefully, I won't have to be there TOO long.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know it's been too long

I know it's been far too long to go without a DG update. I apologize. It just seems that my relationship with Blogger has cooled over time. I guess the newness of it has worn off and we are out of the 'Honeymoon phase.' I do hope you can forgive me and stop back now and then to see if I've updated.

So, I know you're all just on the edge of your seats wanting to know what I've been up to lately, right???

Well, here goes....

I'm still at the same job I've been at, unhappily. However, I have been putting out resumes so I'm hoping that things will begin to look up! Please keep your fingers crossed and/or say a prayer that something good happens. I would appreciate it!

As for the jewelry biz, I'm getting exactly what I'm putting into it....not much. I'm just having a difficult time getting over my loathing of the telephone. I really don't like calling people that I hardly know and asking them if they'd like to have a jewelry party. The other thing is that some people won't get back to me even when I contact them by phone and e-mail. That's frustrating!! I don't want to be a pest, so I don't contact them a lot, but if they would just be polite and respond to me, I would be most grateful.

Ok...would love to say there is more, but there's not. Or perhaps I just want to leave you wanting for more??? You can decide for yourself.

Until then, hope you have a groovy day!
