I stayed home Thursday and Friday. I didn’t feel very well. I just layed around and watched tv and relaxed for a change.
I think summer is over. It ended early this year. I’ve always loved fall. The leaves are starting to fall already. It’s in the 40s at night and the low 70s during the day.
I’m not ready for winter this year. Winter depresses me. It’s always so cold and icy. I don’t feel like I’m warm for 7 months. My utilities are so high. No more bbq’s, potato salad, sitting on my deck in the morning with my cup of coffee.
I feel like the summers ending and I’m going into a new beginning. But I want it NOW.
I had my interview with HR yesterday. It went well. The only thing that they might be concerned about is my pay. I will have to take a 10k a year pay cut. That bothers me but the only other option I have is staying here.
It’s expensive here. I don’t feel like I’ll ever get ahead. Plus, I need a new start. Brand new life, no baggage.
I know the summers in Arizona will be miserable but the rest of the year will be beautiful. I can’t wait to have a garden and not have to bundle up in boots and gloves and hats and scarves every time I leave my house. No more digging my car out! No more sliding around in the ice. No more shoveling my stairs. I’ll be closer to shopping and restaurants. No more living with bad memories.
Am I running away? Probably. Do I care? Nope.
