Hello Hello!

I find with Blogging, I have learned that it's always better to be to the point. So here it is.

My life has been an utter disaster. I'm considering changing my name to "Job" (as in the Biblical character, that is) But thanks to Kristen and Christine's guidance, I have learned a lot. And I'm keeping the faith. (Love to you both, Ladies, and thank you. Know that what you've said to me over the years really mattered.)

The recovery has begun. Apparently, I have 9 lives, and I'm down to 6. I have begun a new career, and it's really starting at the bottom. But I was a virtual flunky in my old career when I started, and I did well, so I'm hoping that I can do it again. A priest I'm friendly with told me that, in fact, while it's not ok to ask God for riches and wealth, it is quite acceptable to ask Him for help in the quest to provide for my family.

And so it begins.

A few years back, I found a lot of Blogging fodder among the people I commuted with on the Ferry. My new career calls for a 15-minute commute in my car, so that won't work. But I'm working in a retail establishment on a grand scale, and I think I may be on to something new. The cast and crew of this new place might be providing some new material, and I'm wondering if maybe I should run with it? Since "The Office" is a well-established TV show, I'm thinking I'll call my series, "The Shop".

Would love to hear what you think!

    I don't care where you work or what has happened. You are a wonderful person. I just like your checking in once in a while so I know you are (reasonably) OK.

  2. Hello Hello...there is life out here.

  3. Great idea but you might need to make sure the details of the shop remain anonymous, so we don't know the real identity of the shop or customers!).

  5. It is good to stop in and wish you a Merry Christmas!! SO nice to hear from you!!

  6. The shop has potential, but how about the Store? Hope you can relax and enjoy the holidays.

  7. Happy belated New Year!

  8. I'm just glad you are alive and well. And yes--it's ok to petition God for the things you need! (Just as it's important to thank Him for the things you have.)

    Keep the faith. ;-0

  9. I know this isn't what you meant...but I would take your 15-minute commute ANY DAY. I commute 75 miles a day for a 15 hour a week job. :(

    Good luck to you in your new endeavors.


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
