I have been away from Tools for a very long time now. I had some issues with computer access for a while among other things, but I plan to get back to my tools program.
I was recently laid off from my job of 10 years. They finally figured out that they could have the newbies do my job for half the cost. But that's okay. Right now I'm enjoying the extra time with my kids. I was only working 20 hours a week when I got laid off so it's not a huge amount of extra time, but it's still nice to have it. Now I get do decide what direction to take my life from here. It's a little scary, but it's also rather exciting. After 10 years with the same company and 14 years in the same career... now I have the chance to reinvent myself. I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to do that or what my "new" life will look like, but I'm sure it will be an adventure getting there. I'm also sure that this program will help give me the clarity that I need to successfully travel this journey.
