On Getting a New Job…

September 26, 2006 Leave a comment

Oh, have I mentioned that I got a new job? Must have slipped my mind like so many other things in the past few months. So anyway.

I have a new job. Back to the world of the consultant for me, this time with SyllogisTeks. They found me a one year contract at Gateway EDI, right downtown. I get to ride the MetroLink to work again! That is an incredible load off of my mind.

Ever since the stress of my health got to me so much that I could not manage the cacophony of thoughts bursting out of my mind every second and my temper started flaring up worse than I think it ever has that driving in to work became a really Bad Thing TM. Saying that I get road rage would be a bit of an understatement. I honestly thing about running cars off of the road. That is never good.

So not having that stress on top of the rest is such a relief. Plus, I no longer have to work on His code. Let’s party over that. Also, by the end of this week, I will no longer have to refer to my company as TechPhob — though they always will be.

So there it is. I’ll be downtown at Broadway and Washington now; and what is truly hard to believe is that it will be two years (almost to the day) since I last worked downtown. Referring to my last post, where does the time go?

Where Does the Time Go?

I cannot believe I haven’t written anything on here since August 23rd. Has it really been that long? Time has a funny way of getting away from you when you don’t pay attention to it. That and a vacation in the middle of the month will make time fly by.

The vacation was most welcome, and such a good time. I admit I wasn’t really sure how much rest I could honestly get taking the kids to Disney World again this year. Last year we had plenty of extra hands; this year it was just Sarah, Tim, and me. And you know what; I think we all had a terrific time!

Not only was it a great time, but except for wanting to get on the Internet and check my email constantly, I didn’t think about work once until the flight back home. That is what I call a vacation!

Now I’ve been back in the really world for two week already and I am wondering how did that happen? I know that time is supposed to move faster as you get older, but come on — I’m not that old.

I guess I need to put my ear to the pavement and listen a little more carefully, or before I know it, the New Year will arrive.
