I've been away, but now I'm back!

Well hello again....

It's been a number of months since I've posted anything on my blog. There have been some changes in my life that kind of put me into a funk.

I got laid off.

Yeah, boo hoo, so do other folks. Well I'm not other folks. I felt like I was going to grow old at my company. Sixteen years there and I thought I was safe. Not so. Thanks for your hard work, but see you later.

My entire team fought like nobody's business to keep me there and I truly love and miss them. I've never worked with a better bunch of people!!

My 16 years came with a nice package, so all's okay for a while but still...

So onto other things - no sense in dwelling in a funk - hence here I write again.

I was lucky to get a contract job with an org a month after D Day. And they want me until the end of August, so I'm counting my lucky stars.

Also, now would be the time to look at other opportunities, right?

For over a year, I've been thinking about becoming a Stella and Dot Stylist (I procrastinate on things a bit). What better time to do this then now. I can do this part time while still doing the traditional office job too.

So I suppose I'm looking for advice. Should I do the Stella and Dot thing? I love fashion so it makes sense, right? It's pretty low risk.

My biggest wall is myself really. Do I have the confidence to do this? I think I do. I seriously think this is something I should do on the side.

I don't want to find myself suddenly 80 years old and "I wish I had done that...."

Well anyway, perhaps you'll see more of me and Stella and Dot.

Wish me luck... :D
