I’ve been walking a lot lately. I’ve probably logged about 50 miles in the past month. The weather has cooperated – my feet have rebelled. Abby, my walking companion, took off after a deer the other day, slipping her collar. She came back hobbling so I’ve had to restrict her a bit while she realizes she’s getting older. A day or two off each week will hopefully allow her to heal and I’m stopping her from running at the dog park – or at least attempting to stop her.
On a side note, the job search is going slowly, but in the interim we’ll keep walking forward.
Learning as I go…
I’m dashing out another post here with no chance of profundity. I’m tinkering and learning and feeling my way around much like a blind man in a bordello. I’m finding WordPress is very easy, if I let it do the work instead of trying to do it myself with my previous knowledge of ftp, html, etc.
Something about old dogs comes to mind.
I’m starting over in a way. In December, I was “downsized/dismissed/transitioned out/laid off/broomed/fired” from the job I held for more than 29 years. Since then I’ve had the luxury, and the inclination, to take some time off. While I’m in no rush, I thought it might be prudent to start looking for another job/career before I hit retirement age, so that’s what I’m doing now.
When you don’t have an extensive resume and your career was in a youth oriented and somewhat dying industry, applying for positions can be intimidating, if not humiliating.
I have great faith however and God has a proven track record of pulling my ever-growing butt out of the fire, so I’m saddling up and hoping the Merry Go Round has a few more spins.
Need to learn WordPress basics…so here I go.
