    Damn Naiaid. Looking awesome. (not that any of us are surprised.) Rocking the red.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    Awww.... Thanks, y'all! I hadn't tried this color red before, I usually stay with the cooler tones. I think this looks better on me than my natural ash blonde. At $8 (or less, coupon dependent) a box, I think I can swing staying this color.
    The chile verde was good. Could've used a touch more salt, and a bright note (crock pot meals tend to need a last minute addition for that) and maybe some cumin. For my first time cooking pork EVER, I'm rather proud of it.
    I had a few more CBT moments yesterday.
    Geek was trying to describe something yesterday while we were gaming, and I started dying (and raging.) When I asked him to say it again after I was rezed, he said "never mind." Rather than allow myself to get angry and scared, I acknowledged the emotions,walked through the scenario again in my head, identified the healthy emotions, and put the fear away. It worked. Rather than gnawing on it for hours, I was able to let it go.
    I had a bad case of the hyperventilating worries right before I fell asleep about the job situation. Controlled my breathing, acknowledged the fear, reminded myself that I'll find SOMETHING, and put the fear away. Curled up next to Geek and fell asleep.

    Backyard is mostly mowed. It has a mohawk because the battery died, but the grass was tall enough you could lose a Froot Loop in it, so I expected a mohawk.
    I'm showered and medicated, waiting for the ijits at the body shop to call and say Molly's ready. Supposedly, they're doing their final inspection (a couple HOURS for an inspection?!) and she'll be ready.
    Applied for a planner position and IT position at Sister City, applied for a drafting position and engineer position. We'll see.

    That cut and color looks absolutely amazing on you.

    When you were talking about the number of jobs you've held over the past 5 years, I started counting and I've held 10 different positions since this month, 2008. Not anything to write home about. I have almost been in this position for 6 months and I think this is the first job since Morgan Stanley that I've thoroughly enjoyed.

    I'm not sure how to tell you to stop beating yourself up over this. At least you are finally seeing it as an opening to something new rather than an all out end. A creative job seems like a good fit for you. Here's something that I have thought of. What about volunteering? Meals on Wheels, local food pantry, schools. It would be something to keep you busy and could look good on a résumé.
