things have been quiet here for a while – sorry, i’m not trying to keep you out of the loop. Just trying to keep my head from spinning off my body (as it turns rapidly in 37 different directions – all at the same time).
I need to be quiet on a favorite-social-networking-site about my plans to relocate, which is kind of like putting duct tape across my mouth – because i can’t say “whew! just finished packing 3 boxes – only 73 more!” or indicate just how thrilled I am with the men I hired to help paint my house (because they’re also going to do two additional jobs while they’re here – fully compensated, of course – but it’s just so nice to know the painting-of-basement-stairs and fixing the caulk & paint problems in the bathroom will be taken care of). Because most people in my current city don’t know my plans – they will soon, but for now I need to focus. It’s my goal to have the house photo-ready by next weekend… and think I need to stay home a day or two this week to help in that effort – let’s see how much I can accomplish today. (?!)
In other news, two supervisors have given me a letter of recommendation (for me to take to job interviews – i may consider binding them together with an introduction/cover letter explaining who/what/when/contact info for each letter. And of course, in this day/age, potential employers pick up the phone or send an email – so it may all be mute. However, once I leave this job i’ve been in for a decade, i’ll be gone – done. Over. and it’ll be nice to have some documentation of their impressions of me while I was here.
And please accept my apology for getting behind on everyone’s news & posts… just a bit more time, a lot more work, additional tape/boxes, and i should be able to be a normal person once again. well, as much as I ever was.
