A shattered career

I have known for 6 months now my job would be ending.  In those 6 months I have gone through a wide range of emotions from denial to pure sadness.  For 18 years I have worked in the same group in some capacity, and in less than 2 weeks from now that will all come to an end.  When I dwell on it too long I definitely find I need a Kleenex.  It’s just hard to imagine not wearing a badge, docking my laptop at my desk, and spending 8 1/2 hours in my ergonomically correct chair working on circuits and answering questions related to my job knowledge.

My plan is to just take some time off.  I have my resume updated, although it just does not feel complete to me.  This is the plan anyway, but people tell me I will not last 4 months “sitting around the house”.  But I won’t be just sitting.  I’m not sure they understand that even though I tell them I want to focus on me, and work on my mosaics.  I want to do something I truly enjoy where my biggest concern with my mosaics is slicing my finger open (nothing a Band-Aid can’t fix).  My biggest concern with my current job is having a customer go down, and not being able to fix the situation quickly.  It can be quite stressful at times.

So probably you will be reading a lot about this in my blogs…how I’m coping with the loss of my job, and how I’m feeling from day-to-day.  We’ll see how this goes!

  1. You will be missed, that’s for sure. Here we are, 2 people working for the same company hundreds of miles apart, but paths often crossed in mutual goals of taking care of our customers. Grateful that I now can call you “friend” and know about your passions beyond circuits and pvcs and gold car. My wish for you is nothing but happiness and joy and I am glad that I get to witness your journey. You are one of the best, my friend!

    1. Awww thank you my lovely friend! Not only are you talented in your photography, but also in your words! I won’t be far away…just a few keystrokes. And you know you can always vent to me about all acronyms that give heartburn. 😉 *hugs*
