world keeps turning

It's been a long time since I've posted anything. It's funny to me that my old blog ( extinct, thus outofanewhabit's creation) ended with a bunch of posts that started with "it's been a long time since i've posted anything". But, I won't let this one die. I swear.

It seems to be a year of extreme challenges. First, Eric lost his job. Then Kaia was born, and she moved onto her next life. Then my mom got cancer. Then my Grandpa ended up in the hospital (still there) and almost died. And now, I've lost my job, along with all the other designers at Advanstar. I'm not really sure at all why all of this is being put on us this year. It really is making me question things. I was asked last week how I keep on smiling. All I can say to that is, there has got to be a bigger plan. I can't worry about it or be angry, because anger isn't going to get me a job nor would it do so much for my marriage.

I have to remember my blessings.

The day I got laid off, I came home to a chilled bottle of white, a nice bottle of red, and two chilled shots of patron (tequila for all you non-drinkers). My husband knew I'd need a little mood chiller. He wasn't upset, nor did he let his concern show through. He simply said "yay, now we can spend more time together." I am blessed. He teaches me daily how to let it roll off. I swear he's like a good dog...he's always happy and always your friend and always makes you smile, regardless of what the world is putting you through.

So, with that all said, if any of you all know of any jobs out there, be it graphic design or bartending, please let me know. I am anxious to keep working and need it to keep our home and cars. :)

Love you all. Strength to you in your times like these.

  1. You really have had quite the year. I am so sorry for everything that you have been through this year and I hope the next year brings only good things to your life. You have a wonderful husband and a lot of support, so even though it will be hard you are handling everything so well.

    I wish I knew of a job for you. I have worked from home too long that there are times I forget there are people working in the 'real world'.

    I will continue to keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.
