This has been a busy summer. I fear the blog has taken a backseat.
I have worked a full time job since I was 18 yrs old and attended night school more years than not. That did not leave a lot of time for play. Most free time was spent with my young children attending to their needs and wishes. I have more recently been unemployed for the past month and as summer is my favorite season of the year, I have taken every opportunity to soak up some sun and enjoy some time off.
I have enjoyed working in the Engineering field and made so many lifelong friends and acquaintances over those years. I am however feeling quite burned out with cubical life. I am a people person. I like to work with people. I like to get out into the world and change things up during the day. I am not the right type of personality for office life.
Not to mention the change in the corporate jungle over the years. It is a man eat man world. Add that to the man eat woman world I feel I have battled for so many years and the stress builds.
I am looking into some new ventures. I am looking at some changes in my career life.
In the meantime.. the girls and I have been having the time of our lives. Summer fun on a budget.
Parades, family reunions,
Hope you are all enjoying the weather. Getting out and not sitting inside.
