Joining the ranks of the unemployed...and giving stuff away!

Yesterday I was let go.....


I'm working on my resume... or CV... or whatever you want to call it.


Maybe I'll do something much bigger and better with my life.... or not.

In the meantime I"ll work hard to help my children understand the complexities of an adult situation where Mom lost her job and all that goes along with it (like letting the sitter go) boo..... and I'll teach them that when life gives you lemons, you write about them, take pictures of them and maybe just brighten a person's life with your creative endeavors.

I wish I could take credit for this little beauty but it was my good friend Spud who created this wonderful image of loveliness. It's just gorgeous. Thank you my sweet for letting me use it today :)

So my friends if any of you have any ideas or comments on how I'm to find gainful employment please comment now. Link to this post, follow me publicly and sent it global......you're reward? the cutest little Inner Rambling of a Mid Life Mama coffee mug. Yep, an adorable coffee mug for your efforts. I will use a random number picker thingy to pick the winner. Drawing to take place on Monday July 12th.

oh ick... Sorry to hear that. (Or maybe I shouldn't be sorry?) Unfortunately, I don't have any lines on gainful employment... I always just create another company when I feel the pinch. I now have three. Don't do that! :)

I think you should take some off to consider things, think about what you want to do, what you're good at, what kind of job would suit your girls best as they grow up...and cherish this time as a gift. Summer with your girls, doesn't get better than that.

You'll look back and know that this was a turning point for you. But horrid now, I know.

Their loss, not yours.

If i had a photo of a silver lining I would give that you to put on this post!

Hugs xxxx
