So, it has been some time since I’ve updated this. Since my last update, I lost a job, was without for about 6 mos +/-, in depression and out, and now have an awesome job again. I’m only making a fraction of what I made before, but I truly, truly, truly, love what I do. I’m temp to perm right now, but hoping to go perm before the first of the year. Since I heard it’s not that easy to get bonded and go permanent, I’m not holding my breath for the deadline, but I can still hardly wait to have job permanency. I haven’t had that since before my employment with the government. How is that you ask? I mean I worked with them for over 10 years. Yes… I did, but as contractor, which is the same thing as a temp. I knew I could lose my job at any time – which I eventually did. And they didn’t need a reason to let me go…. Although the reason was awesome – for wounded warrior – it did not make the sting hurt any less. I mean really, I was with you guys for how long? I helped develop some of the way the workflow that is still used currently and up until a couple of months ago I was still being contacted for assistance (notice that I was being contacted after I was let go). But no worries… I think being let go was probably the best thing in the world for me. I really didn’t like the politics and I definitely didn’t like the nepotism – yeah you all know who I’m talking about. I loved the pay and being able to assist people, but the stress really wasn’t worth it in the end. I had already told my boss about 6 mos. before, I was ready to quit and he made me promise I wouldn’t because he needed me. LOL… Well, now, I’m able to always assist people and the people that work with me are all trying to help each other as well. No more, this is mine…. Okay “sometimes” there is, but not anywhere to the degree that it used to be on the base. I’ve made some great friends over here, where I really only retained one friend from the base. My BFF – Rosie – shout out!!!
I know this last paragraph wasn’t structured correctly, but whatevs… I’m just glad to be coming back out of hiding and will try to be more in tune with my life, surroundings and updates to you guys. Have some more ideas… weight loss, holidays and womenopause. I know, I know I spelled it wrong, but why spell it the other way if men don’t have to go through with it.
I’ll leave you with this. I think I’m back!
