So it has been a roller-coaster ride of a week, to say the least. In the past 7 days of unemployment, I've gone from sobbing like Nancy Kerrigan (whhhhhhyyy whhhhyyyy whhhyyyy???) to "who really gives a shit?" to "I'm kinda liking this!" to "I can't wait for tomorrow!" And at the lowest of the low points, my great friends were there to scoop me up, get that dirt off my shoulder, smack me on the ass and say "get back in the game, tiger". And I've only reached the highest points becuase of those very friends doing those very things.

Tomorrow I have an interview and immediately following it, I'm takin' my car, and I'm takin' my dawg, and we're headed to mommy and daddy's to spend a weekend on the lake. And Thursday Molly is coming and we're going to bask in our unemployment, sipping margaritas, getting tans, and reading Star magazine. And maybe applying for unemployment... why not?? Everyone else does it. OK, maybe not. Hopefully I will return home employed on Sunday, ready to start my new life and my new J.O.B. on Monday!

And at THAT point, I will finally be able tell Beacon to TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT! And all will be right in the world:)

I am so proud of you for getting to this good point, Katie. God knows it has not been easy, and it's been an uphill battle, but you're going to be okay, and the best part is when I tell you that now, you can really start to believe it. Now that you've gained some perspective and feel strong in who you are and what you're doing, it makes all the difference in the world. Friends and family ARE really the silver lining when things like this happen -- and if I could just help in a wee little way, then I have done my job. Jesus knows you have gone above and beyond the call of duty for me lately, and I will never, ever forget it. Thank you!

PS, the lake is gonna be soooooo fun! Take lots o' pics and post them on the MySpace. YAY.

PPS, I think I'mma start blogging on a daily basis now. It's part of my "Getting Andrea Back to Strong" project. :)
