Oh, bother

I guess tough times, and how we react to them, are what defines people, right? Well, I'm going thru a tough stretch right now, and will be learning a lot about myself in the process.

I started the week with a nice, big, fat DNF at the Flying Pig. As if that wasn't disappointing enough, I'm ending the week unemployed, after having my job eliminated yesterday, due to expense cuts. Gotta say, did NOT see that one coming. While I'm not overly upset about not having that job anymore, I am at least mildly nervous about not having a job anymore. The severance package and accrued vacation time pay helps in the short term, and I'm already actively seeking another gig, so I'm not hitting the panic panic button right now. But damn! What's next? Wait. Whoever it is that listens to these rhetorical questions, and answers them by dealing you the next blow, as if to say, "This is.", please forget I asked. It would be much appreciated.

So now I have some free time. Although, when it's not free time under your own terms, it really takes the enjoyment out of it. LOL. I feel kinda guilty even having it. But I know it's through no fault of my own. Life happens, and this is currently what is happening to me. Since I have no intention of dying in the next few weeks, I'm going to have to deal with it. Wish me luck.

In the meantime, I'm off to put down some miles, before the rain shows up.
