Endings and Beginnings

Posted 07-20-2010 at 06:38 AM by LookinForMayberry

We didn't realize we'd be in PDT so soon, but as we crossed the ID border we were welcomed to the Pacific Time Zone at the same time. It was nice to see this sign of home.

We also returned to non-roaming status in our cellphone coverage, and I can actually pick up my voice mail messages, again! Yea!!!

Once we "landed" in the RV park, I discovered that my invitation for my second (final?) interview was received, to sit before the panel and answer their questions....

Two more weeks left!

Posted 07-17-2010 at 07:22 AM by LookinForMayberry

Two weeks from today, we will be arriving in our home territory. The tenants will be vacating both houses, our home and our rental, and DH's work to prepare both for re-occupancy will begin.

I've started the job search, and had one good phone interview that ended with the suggestion that another will follow, next week. I hope it works out, as it is for one of my target nonprofit organizations near my home, and I would like to be a contributor to their mission.

Thanks for your comment and rep, today, 2G. It was nice to hear from you. We are on the home stretch of this two year journey, with just four more weeks to go. It's been a trip, indeed.

I've grown a lot as a person, and it's a new me going back to the homestead. I am not "Lookin'" anymore.

Part of the growth has come from the disappointments, but more has been from all the soul searching. I found I was much too shallow in my spiritual life, and all my judgments...

Kill Your Computer

Posted 10-30-2009 at 08:02 AM by LookinForMayberry

This window to the world is taking way too much of my time, better spent on things that I enjoy more.

I was naive to think that I wanted to use this as a point of connection to others. I don't. It just sucks time out of my day, and leaves me dissatisfied.

Adios, websters, it's all yours!

Five Months Old, Yesterday

Posted 10-27-2009 at 04:01 AM by LookinForMayberry

My Bigun turned five months, yesterday. At day break we walked over the Eads Bridge, again, and explored downtown St. Louis. It started raining soon after we left the RV, but he pressed on, questioning my sanity with only an occasional glance, as if to make sure I noticed.

Across Locust from the Main Library we found a small dog park with a man and his dog -- a female about twice Bigun's size, playing ball. I asked if we might join them and he agreed, but the dogs had only a brief...
