OK all, most of you know by now as much as I was so excited about my big 4-0, so far it's been pretty rough. I turned 40 in May and then June turned into a major sh*tstorm; broke up with BF and lost my job in a matter of 3 weeks. Guess the universe was slamming some big ol' doors shut for me which were ultimately NOT part of my life as much as I thought they'd be. I know things happen for a reason but the combined work + personal stress really has strained my self esteem (temporarily, mind you!). Anyway, I need time to heal my heart before I'm ready to start dating again, but on the work front I am back out there in full force. I know I could take some time off and be just fine financially but I am just not one to sit idle. I had a GREAT phone interview today which will be followed up by an onsite one later this week, plus a phone screen with another group on Monday! I honestly didn't think much would get done this week with July 4th and all, and just was using this time to get mobilized but more has popped up than I expected! i can't thank you guys enough for all your virtual hugs and support. I have a lot of local support here at home too of course, but you are the ones who helped me pick out a great summer interviewing outfit and are the only ones who can appreciate my retail therapy results. I would also like to thank those who have been helping me via PM for additional support, advice and even reviewing my resume!! You know who you are. You rock. HUGE HUGS. So, time to suit up again Friday in the shirtdress, 'Choos and *sigh* picking out the perfect fab bag to knock 'em dead. Cheers and have a great 4th everyone!!
