Oh what a beautiful morning....

Oh what a beautiful day.  I've got a beautiful feeling.  Every thing's going my way.

(well, with the minor exception that blogger is not letting me upload pictures right now and this is the only block of time I have to post today...so forgive me.  Tis' not my fault. I even tried it again just now and nope, it's not working.)

I have a busy, busy weekend upon me.  I will let you in on a little secret.  Ready?  Some of you already know.  In May 2009, I lost my job as a environmental research analyst during the fall of the financial world.  My position was driven by the mortgage industry and if there were no loans being produced, that meant I had no environmental reports to write.  This was a job that I loved.  It broke my heart to be laid off.  It tore me up, as you know many other people out there who went through the same thing.

I spent the better part of the last year trying to find stable and consistent work.  I wanted to do something I loved to do and since there are many things that fall into this category, it was hard to choose just one and focus solely on that market.

With the help of my good friends, I ventured forward and began reinventing myself professionally.  I even went so far as to leave the great state of Virginia, but something kept calling me back.  God kept whispering to me...

I listened.  I was obedient and came back.  He wanted me home.  He had a plan.

I begin my adventure today.  I have a full time job in the restaurant "scene" here in Olde Towne.  The scene here is eclectic, happening, stylish, hip, upscale food and I have a place in it.

I could not be more excited.  I am thrilled to be working again.  Working in a dream job...a passion.  It really doesn't seem like work.

There is also a picnic from Angry Adam's Wine and Cheese Spot for which we will be enjoying with friends before the Olde Towne Ghost Walks.  Last night, we sat outside and watched Colonel Crawford, a dressed docent who speaks in third person, give a wonderful tour in front of the house.  I am really ready to have some fun.

Thanks for all your prayers and good wishes...man, thanks for just hanging in there with me.  I could have done it without you, but having you along for the ride made it so much easier.

This is Home Girl and...I got a job!
