So, I'm over the shock of re-entry into being back in Boston and not working 60 hours a week in a hole in the wall or traveling so much. I am so thankful for all the responses to my last blog. Thank you to each and every one of you who reads these. And thanks to SparkPeople for always being a safe place to share. Isn't it really wonderful?
I have been enjoying riding my moped. I took a server position for a friend at two of his restaurants so I have been more active, in general. I'm new to serving - never waited tables in all my life. I spilled a beer and almost dropped a plate my first try but now I'm getting the hang of it.
Part of me questions whether I "should" have jumped into something right away but it makes my husband feel better knowing I at least have a "job". We are very tight on cash right now. It is really crazy how despite the past 7 years of working a job getting paid well, that I'm back to the poorhouse so quick, after a little exploration at a position with a non-profit. Alas, he was out of work for 3 years so anything I would have put away for a buffer for now, was used then. I'm sure I'm not alone with regards to financial hardship. There is a lot of that going around. We all just keep doing the best we can.
Anyway, my current in-between jobs, if anything, serve as great character study for writing. I am meeting people I wouldn't ordinarily get to meet and getting to know them and how they live their lives.
I am back and forth - do I just get a job that pays a lot or just take the risk now and start a business? I'm not in the financial position really right now but again it depends on what kind of business I start. I am going to a business center for women for an information session on Thursday and am glad I could re-arrange my schedule to go to it. So there... I will continue to research and ponder for this month at least. It wouldn't hurt to update my resume though regardless. I have procrastinated on that long enough. I will try to make some headway on that this week, too.
I am slowly cleaning my house. It got so far behind when I was traveling. I don't know why, but I need a clean space in order to be creative, despite my creativity often making another mess anyway!. It's crazy but it's what I need and require it. I'm trying to just do a little at a time and hope that eventually the house will be back to sparkling...
I'm more active but balancing that with just nesting at home. I have missed my home and all of my comforts there, including my sweetie.
Well, that's it for now. Kind of a boring blog... sorry. There is just so much percolating.
