Happy birthday to me!

Birthdays are a good time, I've found, for evaluation and consideration of decisions and directions. The job isn't what I hoped it would be - my responsibilites keep getting cut, and while my hours and pay are the same, what drew me was the excitement of learning. I'm not learning any more, and they aren't planning to teach me. So it's back to the job market. And this time my priorities are much clearer. J and I want to be starting a farm, and sooner rather than later. My job should either give me skills - farming, business, carpentry, mechanics - or money. Or both. I'm looking at one now that'll pay me at 24 hours a week what I'm making now for 40+. That means time for volunteering, time for gardening, time for, yes, writing.

Happy birthday, indeed, and good luck with the job search.

Happy birthday, dear Kat! And best of luck with all your plans.

Thanks! I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.
