Rough days  
There are major changes at work. Some handed down this week, some yet to come. I can't really talk about some of it to anyone local since some of the changes are still being hashed out. The short of it is that my job expectations are going to change with the addition of some managerial duties, at the very least. I'll probably end up with a shiny new title but no real perks other than the bulk discounts on all the ibuprofen I'll be buying.

What I do is sort of complicated and convoluted, as one might expect when working with the Feds. There are no easy answers to the challenges that are coming up. There may not be answers at all. I was feeling very unsettled after work. A trip to the gym and the hot tub helped. Melty cheese and tequila helped a bit too. What really helped, though, was getting to talk it through in an intelligent discussion, even if we didn't really get anywhere. I don't know exactly why, but things just seem a little less jumbled. No less hard and perilous, but I feel a little more equipped to handle it.


Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more...

Oddly I was just thinking this morning that it seems like you have been posting less often than you once did, and kind of missing reading about SCA events and art projects you are doing or even work projects. If things have been stressful and changing on the work front that could explain why I feel like you aren't around as much as you have been (not that I am, either, mind you).

Yeah. Life has been eating my brainz. I keep wanting to post about various adventures, but then not having the time or energy to actually do anything about it. I'm still hoping to get stuff up about my trip to NYC/DC... and Gulf wars... and just stuff. :P

Please don't worry - I have to believe that it all works out in the end. You've planned ahead and you have skills that will carry you through and tons of friends that will stand by and hold your hand or help pull you thru the rough patches. And this too shall pass. Or we could all move to AK :)

Thanks. At this point, I'm just sort of wishing it would either get better or just go under. It's the struggling like mad that's exhausting and unnerving. I do have some solutions available, but moving to AK is not one of them. :P
