Après moi, le deluge // after me comes the flood

So I was pretty excited yesterday to go and promote Talkabout Thursday out on 20SB and the web and stuff.

But then I got laid off from my job.

...

Uh-huh.

To be honest I sort of saw it coming, if not now than soon, so I'm not completely shocked about it. There just isn't enough business right now to support my position anymore. It's still one thing I really would rather NOT have happen right now (LOL, who would?) but hey, such is life.

And now I'm CONVINCED that there is a little gremlin out there somewhere, who has a list with my name on it, and a bunch of evil hardships I must go through, and he's checking them off one by one and laughing like this - buuuwehehehehhhhhh!

:)

I'm okay though; I had "a day" yesterday of course, but now I'm back on my feet and ready to keep going. After a relaxing weekend, of course. Sitting on the back porch in breezy warm weather with iced tea is pretty necessary right about now! ;)

And I don't care how many things are on that damned gremlins list. Because I'll take them all on.

Iced tea on the porch can solve a multitude of problems :) Sorry about your job, friend! I figure these things only mean something bigger and better is heading your way!

Yuck. I think that gremlin has my name too. Lets find him! We'll hunt him down! It's be fun!

So sorry about your job. And I'm glad you're taking it well. That gremlin should be murdered. And as Krysten said, I think it has my name on his list too. I'm gonna run that gremlin over. :D

Sucks about the job, but seems you saw it coming. It's good to know you can take a day to feel bad about it, and then ... move on. There is wisdom in that. *hugs*

We'll tag-team beat up the gremlins, yo! I'm happy to hear that you're ready to get back up straight away. You're really a strong girl, and that's one thing that I really admire (and something I can also learn) from you. I wish you all the best, and if there's anything I can do to help, just let me know. =)
