Recycled: Not Because I'm Here

A perfect post to recycle for my first day at my new job. I wrote this post while stuck in a hotel room in Boston, spending the night prior to a meeting for work. Little did I know two days later I would no longer be employed by this company. I still question their reasoning for having me stay in Boston, knowing what lay in store.....

I am diverging from the usual confessions of my recent past, instead I am confessing the present....

I am not posting this simply because I am here. Here is not a hotel in Boston, in a lonely room on the nth floor. Here is not the result of a meeting I don't want to go to, and traffic so questionable that I could not garuntee I could get here in the morning on time....I don't have to spend the night in this hotel because of traffic.

I am not once again thinking about my posts about disappointment and the balance of money and happiness....I am not thinking about the truth someone asked me for my blogaversary game of truth or dare....it is not what is something I regret.

I am not missing my boys, even though its only been an hour, missing my bed, even though I would still be up sewing right now if I was home, missing my husband, even though he would already be snoring the night away while I sewed. I am not thinking about my sweet husband, alone in our bed tonight, I am not wondering if the cat is keeping him company sleeping, drooling, and shedding on my pillow. (and we all know how I feel about my cat....)

I am not posting just because I am here and want a distraction....nope...not me....I am posting because I want to.....not because I am trying not to think of all the things I really want to be doing right now.

oh...and I did not totally rock out to House of Pain on my drive up here and bop around in my car like I was a rock star :) that would just be embarassing!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday, and are exactly where you want to be right now.


  1. I remember this post and that did seem crazy.

  2. Enjoy your first day on your new job.

  3. Oh, but I believe that things are only gonna get better and better for you!

  4. So I came here because of AmyB's giveaway... I've seen you around on twitter too. When I first read this I didn't catch that this was an older post. I question company's that have us on travel (yes, I was on travel in July and got laid off the 1st day I returned to office) and then lay us off. My situation appears to be a bit different than yours... but I see you are now gainfully employed again. Good for you. Wow, this is long. I'll have to come back when I have more time and get to know you better. :)
