Well, I feel very pretty this morning. My hair is trimmed up so I don't need to worry about it for a couple of months. No gray. WooHoo. I feel like a cross between a Rogers & Hammerstein movie and a Clairol commercial. :-)

BTW - Thanks Lee Ann. I do love you sweetie. But know - I will get even. ;-)

I had a hard time sleeping last night. Thoughts of interviews ran through my head. The hardest thing is going to be waiting to hear back on yesterday's deal. BUT - and this is important - I still posted for about 10 positions yesterday. AND - I did the project for that contract position. This is not by any means a done deal and I know that. I know that I know that I know that. So I just keep hammering away.

I've had to make some changes - as expected. Not easy changes. Tough decisions. Difficult conversations. But hey, no one ever promised me a rose garden. It's not all tea and sunshine, this life I live. So, you buck up and do what you have to do. Period.

That being said, adding in the fact that I'm so damned analytical you can bet I've been looking for the life lessons I've been forced to participate in this past week or so. I have to believe that everything happens for a reason. I have to believe that nothing is chance. So I look. I study. I try to learn. This is what I've come up with.

*The people in my life are incredible. And that is putting it mildly. There is no way you will ever know the awesome support that I have received. It's absolutely mind boggling.

*Sometimes pride is a bad thing. Sometimes we have to sit in the darkness to appreciate the light.

*No one person can be a hero. You can't "fix" everything. No one can. And it's ok to admit that. It really is.

*Saying "No" doesn't make you a bad person. THAT single thing right there is HUGE for me. HUGE. It's a lesson I just couldn't seem to grasp. Just so you know? Yeah, I think I've got it now.

Anyway - today is more posting. More searching. A spot of laundry and some conversations with friends.

Well, that and waiting. Did I mention I'm not the most patient of people? Yeah - that's another lesson I'm learning.

"you buck up and do what you have to do. Period."

After last fall, I'd have thunk you knew that the correct terminology was "Buckeye up..." Another lesson?

Gloatin' in the off season is just wrong... I've got few lessons to learn myself.
