People, it is all happening.  I guess you knew that my misery wouldn't last forever. And, it's not like it's over, not at all, but at least there is hope.

Ok, so, first, I have a brand new kitchen faucet. The plumber was super nice and did a fine job. Well, his caulking was kind of crummy, but I'll worry about that later. The faucet works great and looks fantastic.

Second, yesterday, I got a job offer. Someone who runs a small business that I've worked with over the years called me up and asked if I were interested in working there. Amazing. I don't know if I am, I don't know what they would pay, or if I can even really do that job. I still HATE the idea of leaving my job because the work (not the management!) is the best it's ever been. But just knowing that I could leave if I wanted helps immeasurably.  I feel lighter. Also, my supervisor is out for a week, so I can relax a little while she's gone.

Last, remember my post about my night out the other day? One of the men I wrote about 1) commented on the post and 2) emailed me and 3) seems to think we should get together. That is totally bizarre, a little disconcerting, but also flattering.  I'm not sure why I'm not completely convinced it's the same guy, but he seems to remember salient details about it probably is. I do recall this happening to me one other time--a man recognized himself from something I wrote, though in that case, we hadn't actually talked. My powers of description were so amazing that he recognized himself from my description. He and I did get together once, but it was a friendly thing.

Anyway, that's the story for now. Things are looking pretty good.

Grateful for: a pleasant turn of events.


  1. Glad that things are good for you. Amazed that you've told people about your blog. That takes guts. I've told zero people about my blog and yours is a lot more personal than mine (although mine does have photos of me in my undies).

    1. I don't tell strangers about my blog--this fellow discovered the blog all on his own and claims to be guy #3 from the story. I guess I didn't make it clear that I didn't tell him about it. What there to tell these days anyway? :)

  2. Happy for you for the various possibilities! I haven't run into any of the anonymous bloggers I follow yet. Hope this is the same fellow.

    1. I used to actually socialize with other bloggers, but that scene seems to have died down. I liked a lot of people I met...but it's also good to be more "under the radar" these days.
