Pack it up!

My husband came home at lunchtime yesterday.  It seems that the company laid off roughly 25 people, all across the departments, etc.  OK

Well, we have a nice bit saved up for emergencies, and he'll get a severance, and things look bright for him finding another job in the near future (rather than the far future.)  No worries.  (Well, maybe not NO worries, but less than if, say , we were living paycheck to paycheck with nothing squirreled away and were heavily in debt.

I have not been liking living in Oxford for a few years now.  We have been here since 2005 and I don't feel like I fit in.  But one doesn't just uproot for no reason.  Now we have good reason.  Since the odds of finding work in Oxford are very low and Mississippi in general doesn't look good we are almost surely moving.  And the fact that I WANT to move only makes it more certain. 

I just wish I knew where to.

I guess that remains to be seen.

 I am not really "worried" so  much as uncertain and curious about where we will be going. 

And even excited.  (I hope I like it.)

More random photo fun...
Car window (from inside the car) a few months ago.  Frost!

Don't feel like it

I gave up the drawing practice after two days because I wasn't having fun.  I can't say it'll be forever.  I may give another try in the future.

RANDOM PICTURE!!!  (not really random, just having nothing to do with blog post)
