And the name is….

Hello everyone.  Well, we have narrowed the choices down and are trying a few out on “Little Kitty” – I hope we have a decision soon.  Of course, we all like a different name.  I will keep you posted and announce the winning name later on.  I will also email the name suggester as well. 

I am convinced that life does not get easier as you get older.  Last week I lost my job.  Yep, how awesome is that?  In this economy I am a bit concerned about finding a replacement job.  I have interviewed, but I have not heard anything.  I am determined to not “read” anything into not hearing anything from them.  I obviously need to work on patience.  I have gotten a couple of phone calls from other lenders – but I am not certain that I want to continue lending in this marketplace. 

I have been reading other friends blogs – and loosing ones job seems inconsequential compared to what  is happening in other bloggers lives.  I also need to work on seeing benefits instead of problems!

So, what did I do all weekend? 

Well – I did some spinning, some knitting, some reading, and a lot of meditation.  I am thankful that my craft allows me to clear my mind of what is stressing me out and focus on where I need to be. 

I am blessed to have supportive friends, a loving family, and faith that this will all be alright. 

I am also extremely blessed to find solace in a most unexpected place, from a most unexpected person. 

My ex-husband.

So, stay tuned to see where this leads….

Stay safe and warm – we have cold weather heading in and SNOW in the forecast!

  1. What a bummer! Hopefully something wonderful will come up. And there is often a silver lining in the darkest cloud.

  2. OMG! So sorry to hear that. I can imagine that must be pretty nerve wracking. Still, what a blessing to have a supportive X. You will be in my thoughts.

  3. Oh, Kat, I’m sorry to hear about you losing your job. I hope that you find something very quickly. Dang, that’s rough. That’s awesome that your ex is so supportive.

  4. Oh, Kat!!!!! I am so sorry. I feel a little panicky myself just hearing about your job loss. I am very glad that there are those around you offering support, and that you are finding ways to relieve stress. Also good that there are at job interviews. I will keep you in my prayers.

  5. Ag, how nerve wracking a layoff is! But God wasn’t surprised by it and has a great job waiting for you, I know! When I lost my job back in Chicago, I walked out to the car in tears, turned on the radio and it was playing “God is in Control”! I had to laugh through my tears. And that began the “stand back or you’ll get in the way of what God is doing” move to Michigan. Just think, if I hadn’t lost my job in Chicago, I wouldn’t know you and Lynne now! Thanks, God!

  6. I pray that all will be well soon. We just got word we will be moving in 18 months to a new job. That has me as stressed as you probably are. This is our hometown, we have teenage kids who will be having to find new friends, I will have to find new knitting friends!!!! The consolation is we will only be 1 hour away and there is a yarn shop where I am going to!

  7. I’m so sorry to hear about this! Life sure throws curve balls, doesn’t it? Hopefully, this change will open up new paths that you might never have otherwise thought about.
