Blogging can certainly be frustrating - I wish there was more to write, I don't really know how much of my day to day minutiae can reasonably be repackaged as relevant to international adoptions, and cat pics can take you only so far. So I wait awhile until there's more to say. I'm sure it's easier once children are actually in your home - finding content that is, not time to actually blog.
Here's what's up:
I have gone and left my employer of the last (almost) three years.
Not a lot of people I know are looking to make drastic career changes mid-stream, given the current economic climate. What can I say, I love bucking the trends.
Context: I left a little corporate job with cubicles and boardrooms where there was nothing but a paycheque holding my interest. I was pretty good at it, but it was never going to be anything more than a job. All that changed earlier this month, when I gave my notice and started my career. Not going to get into the details, but the environment is great, the people are amazing, and it feels like I was made for it. Without bragging, everyday is fascinating, and I come home smiling about work, rather than leaving it - not saying there won't be bad days, but it's where I want to be. Total change of pace, industry, everything.
More topically relevant, our homestudy is done! Talk about anti-climactic! We were notified it was done, that was it. File is transferred to CFS, and now we keep waiting. I need facebook to have a macro that just repeats your last update. "We are waiting for XYZ for our adoption." Repeat ad nauseum. And it really is to the point of nausea. I suppose this is one way of making sure that we're really serious, but seriously!
Waiting, waiting, waiting.
