Changes are a-comin’

March 26, 2010

That’s a little misleading. It’s just that my sense of reality lags behind .. y’know, reality. It hasn’t quite sunk in all the way that I’ve finally left home. Actually that’s not true. It’s there, but I’ve only let myself mourn a little bit at a time. Full scale emotional acceptance will just have to wait – it’s too hard to get everything done while fretting about leaving my family, my home, and my workcave. 

I said good-bye (for now) to my dogs who have no inkling at all that this is a huge step. /heart breaks a little/

My hometown friends evidently didn’t take me seriously when I said I was starting a job on April 1st in the northerly part of the state as one of them was surprised I’d left already. “What, no good-bye sendoff??”

*tired, grouchy, overwhelmed me says: If you wanted to see me before I left, you should have said so.  The people who cared did say something and we saw each other.  And if you thought I was going to organize my own send-off amidst the gazillion things I had to do?  Chyeah. No.*  So far as most friends and family are concerned, I’ve quietly slipped out of their midst. 

I made a decision on the car front. More to come …

I’ve been actively pursuing freelance leads to supplement my income.  Examples of my work have earned me a quick pass to the front of the line for one job. I hope we can come to an agreement as it would make at least a couple thousand and make up the difference in my spending of late. Wish me luck!

    Good luck moving!

    If I may ask, what are your sources for finding freelance work?

    Lots of luck on those leads! Big changes and adjustments indeed. But it’s all for the better in the long run, right? 🙂

    @Aspiring Minimalist, Jersey Mom, Hedy: Thank you!

    @RMom: Welcome, and thank you!

    @Karen: Don’t we know it 😉

    @Caity: I can’t be specific about my sources but in general, I peruse job boards that cater to my industry and do a lot of cold-applications. It’s not easy and it’s a pretty low-yield operation but it’s what I can handle right now.

    @eemusings: I’m trying to keep my eye on the ball!
