Monday Morning Musings

That big thing that I mentioned last week, it pretty much kicks in today. After the long holiday weekend, today is officially the first day of my unemployment. For the first time since high school. Like I said before, I was (still am) upset about it, I've lost sleep over it, and after a few days in shock and a crazy long weekend of dealing with crazy, loving, amazing family, I'm moving on. 
I woke up this morning in a different mood. I was raring to go. I worked out, picked up some healthy lunch stuff, ran a few errands, and now I'm home. I even got dressed. I'm working some holiday gifts, cleaning the house for Andrew's parents who arrive on Tuesday, and working on a routine that I can settle into. We'll have house guests for a week, then 2 weeks after that, we leave for 8 days in Florida with Andrew's siblings, which I'm SO looking forward to. 
I'm working on my resume, and deciding what the heck I really want to do, and figuring out how to build this blog... Since writing for free doesn't really bring home the bacon.
But all in all, I'm happy. We've got an amazing support system here, and everywhere really, with lots of opportunities to branch out. 
One of my favorite bloggers, Joanna Goddard, from Cup of Jo pinned this a few months ago. I know it's technically "winter" but it's fitting for now:

My favorite blogger quoting one of my favorite authors. Seems like a pretty good combination. 
Happy Monday, readers! Have an amazing week!
