And so here I am again at a point of many changes in my life. …
On 8/29 I left for my trip to CA. This was my first real vacation since my honeymoon in 2004. It was wonderful. Jay and I trekked out to wine country. We did a day in Napa county, a day in Sonoma county, then a day in San Fran. Wonderful weather. Fantastic food. Great photo ops. Good wines. Much enjoyed. I will very likely go back again. He had been there before and acted as the perfect tour guide. We stayed at a B&B and he drove us around in a rental.
Came back to work from vacation to find that the company that I’d worked for for 6.5 years had re-org’d (yet again) and that this time my position had been eliminated. Honestly, I had expected this. Unfortunately, I had figured that it would happen after the 1st of next year and had planned accordingly.
A week later and I realized that my unhappiness with my personal life was increasing and that it was time to make some changes. Jay and I stopped being a couple, although we remain friends. We get along grandly. We eat together like king and queen. We can dance (although I am always the lesser partner in this). We just aren’t… anymore.
I have a wonderful support network of friends and family. Over the past few weeks I have received emails, text messages, phone calls, IMs, hugs, etc. Duncan has supported me by sleeping in my bed (which I’m sure was an absolute hardship for him [chokes on sarcasm]).
I look forward to whatever life has to offer me next. I hope to be employed full time within a month’s time. I look forward to a pedicure with Mom and Sis this weekend, and maybe a stop in @ Pagan Pride day (to support family), then date night with my girl Karen. Next weekend should bring a night out at Bring Your Own Restaurant, a cake order to fulfill, a day at Pipes in the Valley, and baby sis Becca’s bday celebrations. I am thankful for all that I have and all that I am, and if you hear me say otherwise- please call me on it 😉
