Hey, remember when I used to post every morning, Monday through Friday – and not at all on the weekends? Well, listen up, my little parakeets: those days are over.
I don’t know what days are upon us. But the fact of the matter is that my life is different. I don’t know where it’s heading, but I can feel change a brewin’ – and I don’t think that the posting will happen as predictably (i.e. every weekday morning by 11am). But don’t panic, and don’t cry – I do enough of that for the lot of us – I could never quit blogging. I’m just saying that sometimes, I might post a lot. And sometimes, I might have a couple of quiet days. And sometimes, I might post late at night. And sometimes, I might post on a lunch break.
That is, if I get a job someday, and thus have something called a “lunch break.”
Speaking of, I do have a little job lined up for this week. I’m helping a former co-worker get his new financial company up and running, which translates to “preparing paperwork,” which translates to “data entry.” I am grateful for a little bit of income, especially while I am crossing my fingers for some other things to work out.
By the way, many of you have checked in with me lately and asked about how I’m doing financially during this time of unemployment. Let me say this: it’s very wise to have an emergency fund. Very, very wise. Start saving.
But also, if that fund isn’t very big, it’s really cool to see the ways that God provides for your needs. Some of you have been a part of that – you know who you are, even if I don’t. And so it seems strange to say this on this blog, rather than privately, but this is the only way I know how to communicate to you: thank you. From the bottom of my heart. I am humbled, and so incredibly grateful.
Now, it’s off to my new temp job. The Temptress lives again.
But also, before I sign off, guess what: yesterday, I did two things for the first time. I ran 11.2 miles. And then I went to Waffle House.
