I Quit My Job…

I Quit My Job…

Yes. I put in my resignation. Quite an announcement right? Ok, so personal blogging has not really been my thing. I get a little shy feeling with the thought of discussing my life all up close and buddy buddy. Here goes: In fall of 2013 my soul was drawn to help those in crisis, and I was accepted for a position doing direct care. It was two separate homes – CLS and crisis residential. It started out as “part time”, and was never meant to take hold of me the way it did. It was my little way of “serving the community”.

Over the last two years my loyalty to my team increased, and so did my hours. My grueling schedule started to take over my life completely. So, after some changes and a company takeover –  two weeks ago I resigned. Saturday (tomorrow) is my last night, and I’m SO looking forward to having free time and a full night’s sleep. My shift was primarily third shift by choice, for various reasons I won’t get into at this time.

Tonight is my birthday, I went out to eat with my dad and am enjoying the rest of my night in peace and quiet. My email box was full, and I started to go through some comments that needed to be approved on this blog. Well, upon approving comments I realized that parts of this blog had become a graveyard! The cufon script was gone, my logo was gone, etc. I had moved to a new server, and the scripts holding the fancy fonts together were absent. All that is fixed and a few other things too!

If you’re looking to download the Henry Van Dyke set, the download links are fixed. You should be seeing more of me soon in the blogosphere.

        Thanks so much BlueCat! I'm excited to do more blogging again and post resources and freebies. :o)

      Yay. I had noticed you weren't around as much, but I did not give up hope! Congratulations on your next and new adventure!

      Good for you! Sounds like you needed to find balance, make time for yourself. Happy birthday!

      I'm glad you quit! Ya gotta do what ya gotta do! Ya know? LOL
      My host must be down. I can't access my blog. I wrote the guy, but, I'm still waiting. I have my own domain, I can just make another blog. But, can I apply my domain from the current/inaccessible blog to the new blog without too much trouble? I use WP, or, I should say, I prefer it. Do you know? If no, I'll call him and see what's up. He's been giving me free hosting, which I don't particularly need anymore. He's been good to me, but, I can go it alone. I just need to go do it! LOL
      What are your plans after the job thing? Or, are you going to take a break?
      What ever you do, which ever direction your life takes you after this, I hope you know I am with you in spirit, Su! Be happy! That's what I want for you!

        Hi Su! There's a Japanese site on the domain now. How long have you been unable to access the site? You will need access to your domain registrar. I did a whois lookup on the domain and the registrar appears to be Japanese as well. Can you send an email and we can discuss this predicament?

        I have plans to spend some time with my son Jasper this summer. I'm also going to be working on my residual income projects, blogging and I hope to get some new products made as well. We're going to hire someone to help with our web business and start a marketing campaign too. First and foremost is some down time and sunshine!

      Happy Birthday! I hope it was spectacular! Congratulations on lightening up your load, sometimes it is incredibly difficult to say no to even the good things . Have a blessed day!

        Thank you so much Kristal! What you say means a lot. You have a blessed day as well!
