Aha! Found the problem

Some of my comments were caught in the new Spam filter that Google installed.  I will be able to keep up now!

If anyone has left comments for me in the last couple of weeks, I'm sorry if I haven't responded, but apparently, they are not getting to the blog for some reason.  I keep getting emails that say someone left a comment, but when I go to my page, there are no new comments.  I will try to figure this out with Google and get those comments; I need them in order to keep myself sane (or at least a reasonable facsimile of sane):)

The shoe drops...

Well, I got official notice that I have 60 days to find another job within the corporation or suffer the slings and arrows of involuntary lay off.  I think I'll probably get another position, but it will mean a major lifestyle change for us.  The only positions available are in another city about 20 miles away as the crow flies (an hour as the car crawls in commute traffic).  That means that I won't be seeing my husband every day for lunch, and I will have to drive quite a bit, which makes me a little nervous.

If I don't get another job, I'm in a bit of a pickle.  I'm only 52, (too old to rock and roll, too young to die!), and I can't get my retirement until age 55.  Besides,  I've been in harness for over 30 years, and I'm not really ready to be turned out to pasture yet.

Well, it's another chapter.  What surprises me is that with all this stress, my Parkinson's symptoms are very much under control.  Could it be that I just needed a little shakeup?

About Me

My photo
I'm a lucky lady. I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, a fantastic 25 year old son (I'm so proud of him!) a loving and supportive family, the best friends in the world, a job that I love, and... Parkinson's Disease. I was diagnosed in September 2006. That was a jolt, but I'm learning to deal with it.
