Weekend Update

I haven't been blogging much. I'm in a million different directions right now, but I'm happy to say that most of them are good. I am feeling incredibly positive about just about everything. I truly feel like we are headed in the right direction.

First, as I was lamenting just how rotten some people can be, I was reminded of how amazing people can be, as well. A local organization that does very good deeds had sent out an email saying that their donations had dried up. I forwarded the email around my office, and to another office, as well. 24 hours later, I had $300 and a carload of donations for the organization. Isn't that amazing? It restored my faith in humanity.

Second, I received an email back confirming that the potential employer in the warm and lovely place received my resume. I would be so happy if I got an interview, but even if I don't, just sending it filled me with hope. Putting one foot in front of the other has done wonders for my psyche.

Third, on Saturday, I took a significant step toward getting another job that I really want. It is incredibly hard to get hired by this particular employer, but I am feeling really positive about it.

Finally, AF finally arrived a few days ago, after a 37 day cycle. We won't try this month, because I still have a few medical things to work out. I've completely convinced myself that those things WILL work out, too--easy to do, since overall, I'm feelng MUCH better.

The only sad news is that my chronically ill cat appears to be taking a turn for the worse. I spent this morning sobbing over it. I've kept him alive for more than a year, but it's still going to break my heart when he has to go. I just adore him.

I hope the job hunt goes well and you find that "soul-sustaining" job you need. I am so sorry about your cat. Pets are so precious and mean so much to us.

I am so sorry to hear about your kitty. It certainly pours when it rains.

I'm glad you found a little bit of sunshine this week. Thinking of you!
