Self Employed

With financial returns not guaranteed or even sought at present.

That is my new reality. I told my boss in a phone conversation this am that I plan to resign today.

I attempted to resign yesterday. I went into her office, paperwork in hand, but she was away and I chose not to wait.

On the day prior to my departure to Missouri, she called me to ask me to work the next day. Since I was leaving for Missouri, I could not. I did not tell her then that I was dressed and ready to travel to her office to resign that day. After I hung up, I thought that perhaps it would be rather cold to resign when she just had begged me to come in.

But this morning I told my boss I had found other work to do. Absolutely that is so. I was up at five o'clock scribbling the morning pages.

Headed out now to hand in the resignation and pick up the book by Raymond Carver I reserved yesterday, among other things that must be done.

Oh, my. Prayers ascending for something to turn up. Also wondering if this doesn't open the door for y'all to make an effort to return to the show me state????

Take time to detox before getting into new stuff. I did, and it was a good & right thing to do. God nudged me for 1.5 years before I made that walk myself. Great things lie ahead for you. I will pray for peace, comfort & understanding.

Oh, blessings, dear one!

BTW my word verification was "riensee" - sort of like "I see nothing." Sounds like our interesting lives right now, doesn't it?
