Getting ready

Tomorrow I pick up my rental car and make the annual drive to the NC coast to spend Christmas with my family. As a gift to my Mom who has COPD and can't do all the things she wants to anymore, I have agreed to do all the cooking for the Christmas day meal. My brother and his girl will be flying in from Seattle and won't get there until late Christmas Eve so they won't be much help. I'll be using my Mom's recipes...many of which she got from her Mom. Seeing my brother will be good since we generally only see each other at Christmas.

I'll be doing a photo shoot with a former LJer who I now keep up with on FB. That will be fun.

For the first time in years, I'll be staying on through New Years so I can celebrate my Dad's 79th birthday with him. Not having a job to come back for has it's advantages!

Hopefully I'll be able to travel up to Northern VA as well to see my old friends from high school. If not, I'll plan a more lengthy trip for early next year.

Peace,

Wander

It will be OK. 18 years with the same company is a long time. It may have been time for a change anyway.

If I'd been much smarter with finances when I first started working this job and put a bigger percentage in my 401K Id have more options right now. I have an opportunity to buy/lease an established gallery in NM that already represents my art. I just don't have the kind of money saved that I'd need to take that kind of chance.

So I think I'll be looking at either hardcore freelancing or going back and working for a publishing company or management in some other decent sized company.

Yep. Don't know if it will be today or tomorrow though. Definitely by tomorrow.
