My life is one giant coincidence.

So it's a -really- good thing I've got that new job under my belt ... because I (and others) got laid off from our contract jobs yesterday. YIKES!!! I feel bad for the others, they have nothing set up and things could get a little sticky. Me, I saw that unemployment train a-comin', said NO THANKS!!!! and somehow fanagled a job. Life works in funny ways.

So, now I have a two week (unpaid) vacation to hang around. Not so much worried about the unpaid part, I guess I have my savings if I need it. But, two weeks! WOO! Plenty of time to catch up on my books -- I REALLY need to do some book reviews of stuff I've read recently -- and to catch up on blogging with my neglected Google Reader.

(Also, FWIW, the cheese fondue last night was STELLAR. I can think of nothing tastier!!!!)

It's a sunny, warm morning here on the NC coast, so methinks I'll start catching up with blogs outside on the deck with a nice cup of iced tea!

Ahhh, there ARE no coincidences in life! ^_^ SO glad you're one smart cookie for recognizing a bad situation and doing something to correct it! Mmm.. fondue. Sounds yummy!!!

I agree with Gabby, you are one very smart cookie and made all the right moves.

Fondue does sound very yummy.

you're just one smart cookie. And thanks for the props on the girl w/ pink cup's blog. I look forward to some book reviews!

Sami, have you ever considered moonlighting as a telephone psychic? I'm thinking it could be a profitable sideline for you...

And bring on those reviews! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on books, movies, whatever!
