So, this week I had a bit of a blow – a kick in the gut so to speak. My primary client drastically altered my working hours, which is a serious blow to my income. He was kind and empathetic about it, but it’s still no fun.
I’ve spent all week working to find a new job. I don’t know yet if the new working schedule is permanent or not, but it’s still the kick in the pants I needed to stretch out, make some changes, and shake things up.
I’ve been networking, updating my resume, joining groups, applying for jobs, and I’ve connected with someone great with whom I can trade skills and get my new website up and running.
I am more than a little fearful and a little excited. Not sure how things are going to shake out, but life is about change and I needed to get more involved with the local community and I knew that. This is apparently the kick in the pants from the universe to make me do it. If I’ve been quiet here – that’s why.
Speaking of change, see what Emily gets to do now?

Now, that’s one relaxed cat!
And the Sego palm is starting to look less gross or maybe more gross (hard to say):
But the lilies take the edge off – boy, aren’t they going to town!
