Hi.

This blog and I have been through a lot together: graduate school, first jobs, second jobs, cross-country moves, third jobs, fourth jobs, funerals, an engagement, a marriage ... and a divorce. 

We've learned a lot, grown even more and we're still adventuring. 

Let's adventure together.

Employer: none. {For today.}

Today, I’m unemployed. Technically. For the first time in since I was 15, for an entire work day, I cannot list an employer.

Yesterday I had a job, Tuesday I will start a new one – but today, this weekend – I’m nothing by a lay-by-the pool, wear my orange to Stillwater, unemployed citizen.

It’s wonderful.

How I got my start in the earning-a-paycheck-world. I got my first job when my friend Mykie asked if I would cover her shift at our hometown diner. My dad dropped me off and I learned to take orders and make nice with the coffee crowd. When my boss made an appearance, I introduced myself and told him I was the “new girl.”

Only in a small town can you skip the application, interview and meeting your boss before you tackle the lunch crowd.

This is where I first learned to juggle life obligations.

School. Basketball practice. Homework. Caring for livestock. That boy who drove the orange muscle car.

So excuse me if I lay by the pool and soak up a few cancer rays before I tackle the land of glitter, tailgating and magic.

Today, I’m going to lay here and rationalize which of the 48 uni combinations my Cowboys will be wearing tomorrow.

Cowboys take the W.

Have you ever been Mr. Meogi'd?
