First off, that is priceless, & I love that you join in the fun each week! Secondly, I feel your pain, we have been living on a severance pkg for 18mnths now, with no luck at all in the job search for the sole bread winner. Our only saving grace has been that his company figured out they couldn’t shut the plant without him, so 6mnths after booting him out the door after 20yrs of loyal servitude, & him moping around the house, they brought him back on contract & just keep extending our severance pay. The bad news is, he’s not technically on payroll, so no vacation, no benefits, blah blah blah….company is getting off easy while we hang on for dear life because it’s all we have to hang on to. But it’s going to be painful when the time comes for those braces, or the yearly glasses for 2 kids, or when the pkg finally runs out & he’s got nothing else lined up. My guess is that you have many talents to draw from, I have no doubt it will be an easier path for you in the end! He’s so specialized, in a field that’s gone under in Canada, & is 43 yrs old looking for a 6 figure income to replace what we lost. He has a lot going against him. But you my dear, will follow your dreams, find your passion, & be a raging success at whatever you tackle! Somehow I just feel it for you!! 😀

Thank you so much my dear. You made me all misty eyed and worried for you as well. Best of luck to us both in making better things out of the cards we’ve been dealt recently!

Love that quote. I may have to borrow it. Great cartoon- I’m glad you’re feeling better today.

Thanks. Yesterday, Friday, just got better as the day went on. The anger has subsided finally. I’m in a whole new place today. Looking forward with a deep sense that I carry with me what is most important. And I’m not alone.
